The 2011 Leadville 100 was pretty incredible. The fastest top 10 ever. The fastest 2nd place time ever by Dylan Bowman and the 3rd fastest victory ever by Ryan Sandes who took home the win with an impressive effort. Check out this awesome video from Salomon Running:
In other news, I have yet to start any structured training back up. My body and mind feel ready to begin, but I am still trying to nail down my exact objectives for 2012 and beyond. I have been greatly enjoying an abundance of strength training; both core strengthening and weight training. I am also tremendously enjoying running with the Crested Butte XC running team two times per week, including a tempo run. Being around these great young runners is keeping me on my toes. Also, I have become quite proficient at walking, as I have been walking 6+ hours per week in an attempt to combine physical activity with daily errands. Maybe a future career in race walking? We’ll see. Hope you enjoy the video. Keep planning. Keep dreaming. DC.
