Coming Home to Leadville
On Monday, the first day of June, I arrived in Leadville for the Summer, and after being away for 9 months it felt like coming home. From the snow capped mountains off Hwy 24 into Leadville, to its historic downtown, Coffee on the Hill, Quincy’s steak house, Tennessee Pass cafe, Leadville Outdoors, and the Leadville Race Series headquarters, it seemed like time stood still. And though I know it was a long Winter for all my friends in Leadville, I am ready for Summer adventures on the trails.
This Summer, I am toeing all of these races with one goal — to finish the Leadville Trail 100 Mile Run:
- June 20: Leadville Trail 26M
- June 26-29: LT100 Training Camp
- July 12: Leadville Silver Rush 50M Run
- July 25: Speedgoat 50K
- August 16: Leadville 10K Run
- August 22: LT100
81 days until the LT100 and this Cowboy ain’t leaving town without a finisher’s buckle!
