A Summer Spent in the Mountains – 2013 Leadville 100 Mile Race Report

My Leadville experience started one year ago when I traveled to Leadville, Colorado to crew and pace a National Guard Marathon teammate, Troy Frost. I had heard many stories about the 100-mile race in Leadville and finally got to see the course in person. We drove to all the aid stations and I paced the last 24 miles through the night. Troy did very well finishing under 25 hours and I knew that I would come back in 2013 for my turn to take on the challenging high elevation course.
