Leadville Trail 100: My goal of sub 25 hours!
For this years running of the Leadville Trail 100 my crew will try to make live updates on my progress during the race. The Leadville Trail 100 starts at 4:00 am on Saturday, August 21st. There is a 30 hour cut-off to complete the 100 miles; my goal is to run sub 25 hours. Rick Mann will be keeping everyone posted as long as he can get cell phone reception. I am ready to get this race started!
8/20 6:00 – It is six o’clock on Friday and it’s time for bed. I will be getting up at 2:00 am to eat breakfast and be heading to the starting line by 3:30 am.
8/21 – 2:30 a.m. – Breakfast down the hatch. Egg, potato and cheese burrito prepared in the hotel room on the “George Foreman” grill. Coffee and homemade gingerbread cookies. Ray got a few good hours of sleep. The temp is a balmy (by Leadville standards) 45 degrees. One hour until we depart for the starting line!
