Man, great story and write up.

I clicked over, looked how long it was, decided I probably wouldn't read the whole thing due to length, but started reading anyways.

Got to the bottom and was wanting more! lol

Great story, great accomplishment. Congratulations on finishing and getting your buckle.

Thanks for checking out the site and the comments. I really like the quote posted dkbikes4life - that did capture my experience. And sorry for the white text on black - I will see if I can fix that. Happy riding in warmer climates - snowing now in Denver.

Very inspiring story. I cracked up at the end when you described the cramps going from your hamstrings to your calves as if in competition to which could make you scream. I've totally been there before and it is debilitating. Great job man!

so cool! do you still have that training schedule you followed? it would be cool to see how you trained for that kind of event.
Activities in reverse from the Leadville race. Most activities are here showing either road training, MTB training or spin (some running). Some workouts missed (failed to charge watch battery). Lifted sometimes 2-3 days a week (compare to a very relaxed cross fit training with more intensity than usual, but not overly-intense). Entry shows the activity, the type, the date, the time and distance...

Nothing like the 100. I'm lookin at a 50, like Steamboat Stinger. I've been training but that is slowed with this dang snow. I'm in Den. too. My neighbor does the Courage every year but I don't have a road bike.
Is a 50 even considered endurance?
