Leadville 2016

This is an official post to say this race report is not ready yet.

Fatty is writing a great recap.  When my story diverges from his, I'll post my full thoughts.  It's a lot about what was going on in my head.  This was the hardest one.  Damn happy I finished.

The short story:

I am 4/4 on Leadville starts and buckles.  I am very proud of this.
- had the privilege of spending Leadville week with some wonderful people. Made some new friends and had a once-in-a-lifetime experience Thank You!
- went out fast. First in my little group to twin lakes. 9:30 pace. 
- altitude above the tree line kicked my butt, helped one of the group by yelling at her to walk faster and not stop. When that didn't work I whacked her rear wheel with my front.
- puked at the columbine turn-around, thought about quitting
- felt better coming down off the mountain
- walked a lot
- finished in 11:03
Wish I had a big buckle
