On Saturday I’ll line up with about 1700 others in pursuit of the coveted Leadville Trail 100 Belt Buckle. If all goes well, somewhere North of nine hours in the Mountain Bike saddle, I’ll cross the finish line. Like previous years, I’ll be fueled to the finish by tanks full of inspiration received from two great organizations, First Descents and GrassRoot Soccer. Unlike previous years, I’ll have to scramble to refill those tanks in order to begin another adventure just two days later. This year I’ll be taking on the Gore Tex TransRockies Run with fellow Vail Firefighter, Johnny “I once ran down an antelope” LoFaro. TransRockies is an approximately 120 mile, 6 day stage running race Beginning in Buena Vista, Colorado and ending in Beaver Creek. The intent of these events is not only to push my own personnel limits but most importantly to insure that the sources of my inspiration continue to thrive and better the world. Please check out both organizations and if so compelled, make a donation to my Crowdrise donation page. If you’re interested in how the events are going for me, return to this blog page over the next couple of weeks to watch my video blogs and read about the races. Thanks for your time and consideration.
The longest Triathlon of the season and my last test in multidisciplinary sports for the year, The Rev 3 70.3 distance tri would prove to be the race that it all started to come together. For more info on Inside Endurance go to Gatorade.com/pro.
Perhaps one of the most beneficial and important workouts of my endurance career, I met with Chris Legh outside of Lyons, Colorado for some series bike riding. For more info on Inside Endurance go to Gatorade.com/pro.
After a tough season, I barely squeaked into the XTerra National Championship. I had hoped to have a great showing but things didn’t go quite as planned in Ogden… For more info on Inside Endurance go to Gatorade.com/pro.
