Gearing up for Leadville

By the many posts I've alredy put out there this morning on just about every subject, you can tell I've had my coffee! Well, post San Juan I am a little nervous about my cool impossible Leadville. San Juan was a training run...not a race..mentally I know this, but my time was a wee bit disappointing..ok A LOT disappointing. Not to mention the altitude sickness I experienced. I was hoping for a confidence boosting performance. I experienced some altitude sickness and hypothermia last year at… Continue

San Juan Solstice 50 mi race report

My San Juan Solstice 50 mile race report...Trust....peace...persist.  A few days ago I was heading out the door, headed to the Armory building in Lake City, CO to sign in for my adventure. 6 hours later, feet and legs sore, recovering from a hefty dose of altitude sickness, a little pulmonary edema, awakened by coughing and heartburn from pizza and dreams of mountains, rivers, clouds, climbing, descending, incredible people and more.

5am the gun fired and we were off. I started in the…

Literally, the blue pace line all over... way up, waaay down, stopped, started, stopped, started, waaay up, waay down, stopped....But the run...the run today was pure bliss. I knew I was a little tired from War Eagle and i'm still a little discouraged at how hard the effort vs what my data showed. The legs a little sluggish this week with recovery runs and days off.  This morning's alarm came and an…

War Eagle 50k Race Report...Demand the impossible!!!

So the pic is me post race...happy and needing a bath.  Check out the cool amulet I got from Louis Escobar. Soooo...Sitting in our hotel last night tracking weather. Many tornados for friends and neighbors in Oklahoma.. For War Eagle, lots and lots and lots of rain, lightening and thunder.  My goal for this race was a cool impossible for me...sub 5 hr.  I sat at Doe's Diner eating tamales making sure my calculations for what I would need to pace at were…
