    This ‘race’ kicks your butt. But you will like getting kicked! So many nice people and amazing views. Course is simple… but the altitude will get you 🙂 I trained for the hills so my legs were good… mostly… but about 12,500′ the best i could manage was an ungraceful walk. At the top got water and a quick pic and back to where the oxygen was!! Going down was great, felt better with every step… until the course goes up again. Heart rate was zone 5 the whole race and 100+ the rest of the day even just sitting having a drink. Acclimate to the altitude for as long as you can before the race. I did not stay in town, I wish I had, cool town!

    Well done, Chris! I've had Leadville in my sights for several years now, ever since I signed up to run in 2012 and had to DNS due to injury. So I'm wildly impressed by anyone who gets it done, and reading this now makes me even more determined. Congrats on adding Colorado to your 50 States Map (with flair!), and thanks for the excellent review! LESS
