I think I might do a local race tomorrow. We'll see how I feel and if my bike's drive train will cooperate. I'm probably NOT pacing in Leadville, Julie doesn't seem to be interested in me helping her :( I'm so bummed.
Anyway, Steamboat was great, great scenery, great people and lots of motivation to do more and be more with myself when it comes to running, racing and daily life. The 24 participants carried all of their food, gear and ground pads. The staff carried their sleeping bags. They ran 8 miles the first day, 25 miles the second, 25 miles the third and 18 the last. The race ended up at the top of the gondola in Steamboat. I'm always so impressed with how fast the racers are and how hard they work on a "vacation". All I did was give them water and write down their times!
Reid and I marked the course for the next day. It was tough work but someone had to do it! Thanks John for the loaner bike!
