This is the least known of the Leadville events. A simple 10K run on the first 2-ish miles of the LT100 course. Up and down the Boulevard basically. I always think I will jump into it but a 10K doesn’t seem like anything I need to do the week before a 100 miles. Plus, why spend $30 to run on a road that I nearly run on everyday when I am here. So I rev’d up the ATV and cruised back to the road to watch the runners come by. Nobody was there yet so I drove to the top of the Boulevard and waited for the herd of people to start funneling down. They did so I led them back down to my turnoff and then parked and sat to watch them come by.
Donnie came cruising by first and gave me some shit for not running. He is moving up in the Leadman standings. Nice work.
Then my boy, Timmy! He was in good spirits on the way down the hill. Hope it keeps up. Running in his trucker hat I see…
Then came 2 of my boys side by side…Andy and Cole. Cole giving me some shit as well. Check out his fancy sandals. Hard core. I am going to step on his toes next weekend.
Then Lisa…Leadwoman. Looking like she is having a great time.
Then this dude. I didn’t know him but he had the most heat intensive get-up I have ever seen. Dude, I run in shorts. That’s it.
Timmy made it back to me. Stopped to chat. Like an aid station or something.
Cole continues to give me shit on the way back up the hill. He and I have a date with a Big Buckle next Saturday.
And the grand finale…yeah, buddy! Minus the wieners flopping around
Last ass up the Boulevard? Hard to tell which one.
The next race in Leadville? 100 miles. Next Saturday. Be there.
