Really stupid...

If an idea is good, it's on the verge of being stupid. ~ Michel Gondry

I have always had this theory… get a group of people in a room, throw out a bunch of ideas and at the end of the night, look at your list to find the most idiotic and that's the one you should do.

This blog was spawned from one very stupid idea - run the Leadville 100. I gave that a shot in the summer of '07 - completed 73 miles - and survived. The blog lives on...

Hug a tree...

So apparently the Bush administration is trying to do an end-around on our forests in the waning days of their influence in order to open up our roadless wilderness to mining and drilling. Fellow Coloradoans, I IMPLORE you to go make your voices heard to stop this mad land grab by submitting your statement before October 24th.

Environment Colorado

Our forests thank you.

nice job on the pavement, by the way.

Stubert, got your note about the pavement pounding ... for one, if you plan to race at all on pavement, you've got to do some running on pavement (much as it sucks) it really makes a difference in preparing your legs for the challenge, just like you wouldn't run exclusively on pavement, and then suddenly try a trail race ...

I make sure I have fresh shoes if I'm going to run a road marathon, that really helps as well. I can get away with trail running on beat up shoes, but not on the roads.

I got lost at Leadville this year right before Twin Lakes and lost an hour, missed the cutoff at Winfield, but I've made that the focus of my year next year, I even told WS to stuff it, despite having a guaranteed entry after they canceled the race and stole my money ... (not just some for non-refundable expenses, but the whole $300) ...

Next up in the mean time is the HURT 100 in Hawaii in Jan, should be, well ... "interesting" ... I've heard some evil things about that course! See you at Leadville!
