Running Man is in Leadville

It's the middle of August 
And I just got out my winter coat,
Mittens and hats,
Sweatshirt and boots.

It's an odd wardrobe for this time of the year,
Unless you are heading to 
Leadville, Colorado.

Running Man has plans,
Big plans for this coming weekend.

It's time for the 
Race Across the Sky,
The Leadville 100 mile race.

Leadville sits in the Rockies at a starting
Altitude of 

The trail goes along  here

Then up over this.

You run 50 miles out
and then you turn around and 
run it all again heading back to the start.

The course is brutal,
Unforgiving, and 
Both a mental and physical challenge.

Running Man made his first attempt
Two years ago.
He ran 60 miles.
You can read about that adventure Here.

Elizabeth and I will be his crew.

Now he has more race experience and 
A 100 miles finish.

He's ready to try again.
It will be a long weekend,
Hopefully with good weather
 And swift feet.

Until Next Time-


  1. Home! Love the pictures of of luck to your dear husband!

  2. Wow! What a run. Wishing everyone the best!

  3. Leadville sounds like a town that would weigh you down and make running very difficult. And if you need boots and a winter coat at this time of year, I don't want to go there. LOL! Have a good time.

  4. Good luck running man! You have a terrific support team and that should help!!

  5. Go Running Man! Hope you have a great race!!

  6. Good luck to Running Man!
    Stay warm Kyle!!!
