We all climb the mountain from different paths but the view from the top is just the same. 🙌 Introducing the 2018-19 Mountain View Residence Hall ResLife dream team! Orientation week kicks off today.

What’s your favorite fourteener!? •Mount Elbert, Lake County, Colorado•
Breathtaking- look at those layers upon layers of magnificent Rocky Mountains.
This is the tallest peak in the Rocky Mountains (second highest in the contiguous US!!) summiting at 14,439 feet above sea level!
What an incredible hike and view! This 14er is a 10.4 mile out and back hike, climbing 4,444 feet. You’re surrounded by plentiful wild flowers and old pines for the first few miles before hitting the tree line, which is followed by a nontechnical, long, steep hike to the top. They call it one of the easier Colorado fourteeners, even being fit and training for a half marathon, we could really feel the thin air up above the world (we also hiked it pretty speedily). Breathtaking.•

Here’s the first of a few picture overloads from the trip to Colorado to visit my little brother

A wizard, Wolf Man, and Captain America walk into a tent... who’s in your #relaxandrecover crew?

One of the takeaways from completing my first 100 mile race is how damn lucky I am to have people in my life who would dedicate a sleep-deprived weekend in the mountains to helping me do the thang.
.
Thanks @bharkey, @sexyhermit, and @elijahflenner for keeping me company on the trails.
.
Thanks to @cloth_mother, @kelly.kaineg, Pete, Will, Collin, Laura, Jaime, Nick, and Cookie Mike for cheering me on.

Probably the only time you’ll ever catch me on stage in a high school auditorium. This was taken during the award ceremony for the @ltraceseries Leadville Trail 100 Run. Each Leadman and Leadwoman that completed every event in the series was awarded a coveted Leadman pick axe ⛏ in addition to our belt buckles. LT100 was my first 100-miler attempt and my fifth ever ultra. When I was on the stage surrounded by such an inspiring group of incredibly strong athletes, it was starting to sink in that I came up pretty quick, and maybe I’m actually one of them?! 702 runners toed the starting line at 4AM on Saturday, August 18th, 2018, and 365 of us made it out to Winfield and back before the 30-hour cutoff. The 52% DNF rate is no joke. I knew at the start that if I looked at two people, one of them probably wasn’t going to finish. And I knew it could have been me. “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” So much can go wrong in the course of a very long run, which is why the numbers are what they are, but this time I got lucky, and I don’t take it for granted. My preparation and execution flowed, the miles went, and I managed to enjoy the entire 27 hours, 41 minutes, and 7 seconds that I spent on course with no side stitches, no GI issues, no acute pain, no nasty falls, and no mental suffering. Because the day went so well, I had to constantly remind myself not to let my guard down, not to let myself get too high on the experience, and to stay focused on a steady forward pace. The mantra I used during this race, which I said to myself out loud about ten times, was a reminder for me to stick to my script: “I really want to finish this race.” Seems obvious but to me it meant I had to continue to execute my strategy until the very last step. And that’s exactly what I did. ⛏💯🏁

Almost out of the trees on the relentless climb up to Hope Pass during the Leadville 100 last weekend. Amazing views to the south and west as the sun was going down!

With @creatiomissions

Uncertainty is the predecessor of adventure. One can’t have the excitement of something new and different, without the fear of what the future may hold. 365 days ago I was in Nebraska, in total darkness at 1 in the afternoon. A few days prior, I was on the 2nd tallest peak in the continental US. With no job, and no clue what’s coming next too. How drastically different can your life be in one years time?

It was a monster to climb twice during the middle of a 100 mile race, but the views from the top of Hope Pass were amazing! Leadville 100 mile trail running race #2 is in the books. I’m still not satisfied with my overall placing or time so feel like the course has gotten the better of me twice now. May have to go back for another...🤔
