Leadville awaits

Well, there has not been much time for blogging this past week and a half, so we wanted to throw up a quick post so you know we're still kicking!  Still would like to throw up the rest of the pics from our Steamboat trip, but that will be posted out of sequence as we have a big weekend on the horizon.  Running has been going pretty good, including a great run at Spruce Mountain and Greenland from last Sunday - photo above.

We will be crewing our friend Tim this weekend at the Leadville 100 Run, which should be a pretty cool and new experience for us.  As it turns out, we will also be providing some "live" coverage of the front end of the race via Twitter for InsideTrail , a new website following the MUT (mountain, ultra, and trail) racing scene.  If you want to get updates, follow InsideTrail on Twitter - @InsideTrail .  We will be tweeting with the #LT100 tag on all the entries, so you can search that as well.

The weekend is also BIG time right here in town as huge crowds are in town for the Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon this Saturday and Sunday respectively.  Great weekend for Colorado trail racing all around.  Would like to hit the finish of PPM to see some folks get that done, but not very likely after the day & night at Leadville - good luck to everyone racing there.

***UPDATE***   Some have asked about the PPA / PPM result Tweeting - don't know anyone doing a Twitter feed, but the Pikes Peak Road Runners website will have "live" updates every 15 minutes to 1/2 hour.  Those guys are awesome with the timing/results business!  Click Results, find Pikes Peak Ascent or Pikes Peak Marathon (depending on the day) and then click the In-Progress Results link.

Happy Trails!

would love it if someone was tweeting updates of Pikes Peak. I'm pulling for the old guy, Matt Carpenter. If you know of anyone tweeting PPM, let me know.
