Stoked for the Leadville 100 in three days. Truly stoked. Best crew and pacers in the business. Body is there. Head is there. Don’t know where the result will be, but the plan is in place. Time to run. Time to fly. Looking forward to being back in my favorite Colorado town. Looking forward to having my brother in town. Stoke meter is high.
Mt. Massive in the brilliant morning light. Staggering views. Leadville.
Surrounded by my crew at mile 50. It’s almost unfair how great my crew is.
Last year was hot. This year may be as well. I’ll be ready. Here is a shot right around mile 74. There’s nothing better than the black-striped pink streamers as the course marking material of choice. I have dreams of this course marking.
Mile 86, just prior to Mayqueen. Smell the barn? I can’t wait to be here.
Mile 23 at Fish Hatchery, in the morning. 3:20 into the race.
My wife is always there. She is the best. Thanks babe!
Find the rhythm… flow… run… roll. Then, when it gets hard: focus, fight, push. Thanks to Rob O’Dea for the picture. Annie and I are heading up to Leadville tomorrow. Staying in a great house in Twin Lakes. The plan is in place and the confidence is high. I have never been this excited for a 100 mile race. Looking forward to seeing ‘what’s on the other side.’ Ready to roll. Look forward to seeing everyone in Leadville. All that’s left to do is run.. Race well. Live well. DC
