I’m racing 100 miles on Friday. Track me, live.

My first and only 100-mile performance, Leadville in 2008, one of the highlights of my athletic career.

My first and only 100-mile performance, Leadville in 2008, one of the highlights of my athletic career.

The starting pistol for the Run Rabbit Run 100 fires at noon on Friday. For the next 20 +/- hours I’ll be running and hiking through the mountains surrounding Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The course’s 40,000+ vertical feet of change won’t be easy, especially at elevations up to 10,500 feet.

This is my first 100-mile race since 2008, when I placed second at the famed Leadville 100. I’m fitter and smarter than I was then, but the competition is fitter and smarter now, too, both generally and at this particular race — the $12k in prize money has attracted one of this year’s deepest fields for the 100-mile distance.

Track the race live, if you’re interested, at least until you go to bed on Friday night. I’m bib #70.

Don’t fret if I’m not in the Top 10 or even 25 at the halfway mark. There will still be 50 miles to go, and patience can be hugely rewarded in that time. Amanda will be crewing and she’ll post an occasional update on Facebook, too.
