Leadville Marathon Weekend
Leadville Marathon went fine. Goal was sub 4:30 and finished 4:25. Popped out of the gate a bit hot and was taxed from the get-go, and at elevation it's tough to regroup. First hour of the run sucked but then started clicking. Ran the second half faster than all Leadman folks other than the first two. Just didn't manage the start well. For a fairly mediocre run I'll take it (but was still pretty disappointed). Got up this morning and did a group ride on the first 1/3 of the 100 mile MTB course. 3 hours, 31 miles, and 4,900 ft climb. Felt good to loosen up the stiff legs from all the fast descending yesterday. Finished June with 56 hours and 81,500 ft climb. Had a great time hanging out with Brandon and his family over the weekend and will take credit for his 20 min PR at the marathon simply through osmosis.
