This weekend I spent time exploring an area I usually don't bother to; Highway 285, the alternate way into the mountains if you don't want to fight traffic on I-70. Saturday was Staunton State Park, which had plenty of aspen groves and rock features that made things feel just a bit like Yosemite. Today I did the North Fork Trail, which rolls through a burned valley and high above a river for 10.5 miles each direction. It was a unique trail in that there was a ton of color within the miles of ashes. When I got to the other end, I had just missed vacancy at a six-shooter-town bed and breakfast. Oh, you could almost go back in time to a place that time had almost forgot. Loved it. I'll be back for more! ▪USATF Certified Coach▪

Never/Always//Easy/Worth It. This set of words has been particularly frontal in my mind the past couple of weeks. As I step into the final days of tapering for a race that has inspired me for the majority of my adult life, things are starting to get very, very real. The mountains and their miles are some of the best teachers we may ever know. Its almost never an easy day out there. Your physical and mental boundaries are nearly guaranteed to bend if not break. You get trained to be ready for anything: weather, sickness, hunger, pain, getting lost, staying level in times of uncontrollable happiness... and so much more. Those miles-hours-weeks-months... are always worth it though. We become better versions of ourselves, and contribute to the betterment of the communities that share a passion that runs deep. Whatever the outcome is next week, i want to give a sincere thank you to aIl the people who I've shared miles with, who have supported otherwise, or even just been onlookers to this sport of remarkable human beings. You make the difference, and every step a blessing. Cheers to wherever we wander.

Mt. Elbert summit @14,440ft. I always think I've packed too heavy while going up to treeline here... "when am i reaally going to use these full insulation goretex gloves and extra base layer? Should I just drop them?" Meanwhile, the mountain stays silent but thinks back "ooh you wait! Im going to take you for a ride!" Sure enough, i used all of the gear packed away in my @ultimatedirectionusa PB vest, precisely when the wind went from zero to 60-70ish above 13,000ft and tossed me around. Otherwise it was a perfect day to grind it out! ▪USATF Certified Coach▪

This spot is twenty miles from home as the crow flies, but an hour and fifteen minute drive down dirt road through a ghost town where an 1800s train conductor burnt down a hotel, seeking revenge, that doubled as the best whiskey bootleggery for miles. Basically, just far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle of the front range trails and enjoy the solitude of the hills and the stories that echo in the winds. As they say... take the path less traveled. Colorado Trail. #history #knawledge ▪USATF Certified Coach▪

Right before Scott sent mud flying in all directions, seeking out the only puddle on the mountain. I would have unsuccessfully tried to hurdle the mud and landed on my butt and back... but at least would have tried. A good 26 miles today, my last long run before @aravaiparunning @runsteepgethigh #JJ100. Also, anybody else think that Hayden Green Mtn looks like the TNF 50 SF course? ▪USATF Certified Coach▪

51 weeks ago I tried for a summit of Longs. It started snowing at the Boulderfield, and at the Keyhole there was a full blown ice storm on the other side. I turned around knowing that I would be back. Today I started my climb at 0345... and sent it straight to the top to greet the sun coming up. The Trough and Narrows were tons of fun; truly a classic route. Definitely won't be my last time up this one! ▪USATF Certified Coach▪

Fear is the line we reach that separates us from going about living life as we know it, and the unknown. The unknown, though... that is where the experiences that shape us, teach us, and change us come from. Fear is simply an opportunity. While I'm no stranger to mountains, The Citadel definitely presented me with a couple moments where I had to stop, think critically, breathe a bit deeper, and consider if the next move was in my wellbeing's best interest. Gratefully, I topped out this astounding, authoritative looking mountain without issue, and will be back to climb again another day.

Pulling yourself up and over a body-width rock that borders 300 feet of air is one of those things that makes you stop, breathe, and think. My summit of The Citadel was fuel for the soul.

My first run since last weekend's race was a hot one, on some freshly minted single track right out the door. The ankle seemed to cooperate for the four short miles. I'm grateful to be back on it. Loving that new addition to Dinosaur Ridge! #KeepPublicLandsInPublicHands ▪USATF Certified Coach▪

The mountains don't care what your plans are. They have their own. With that being said, i can confidently say that though there was no belt buckle to call mine, I fought until there was nothing left. Thank you @goatography @iberunnin2 @saradanita for pacing me at the lowest ever lows, and riding with me through the highs. Blog in the bio link! *USATF Certified Run Coach*

Never/Always//Easy/Worth It. This set of words has been particularly frontal in my mind the past couple of weeks. As I step into the final days of tapering for a race that has inspired me for the majority of my adult life, things are starting to get very, very real. The mountains and their miles are some of the best teachers we may ever know. Its almost never an easy day out there. Your physical and mental boundaries are nearly guaranteed to bend if not break.

That wraps it up. This weekend was the peak of my training for #lt100. Of the 77 miles done this weekend, there was flower-speckled beauty, drenching gloomy rain, bliss, exhaustion, joy, doubt, words of awe, phrases of curses, friends, stragers-became-friends, highs and lows... but those are the moments that mold us into who we are. This is the power of experience, and never settling even when its all that you want to do. I am grateful for every step, and hope it never ends. -Hope Pass PC @kkroo917

There were moments of struggle where I just wanted to sit down. There also were moments of pure, adrenaline-soaked, endorphin-filled bliss where my cheeks chattered from nearly crying. Instead, I'd just let out a yell across the mountains to let them know how much they fill my soul. This, the proverbial runner's high, is what makes it all worth it. Thanks @altrarunning
@ultimatedirectionusa @ltraceseries for helping make the experience all the better.

Yesterday was my first "A" race of the year, the Leadville Silver Rush 50 @ltraceseries. I took a different approach to the race this year, with a focus on nutrition and hydration, as well as racing patiently the first half. In my opinion, this race starts at about 30 miles, at the top of Ball Mountain inbound. I moved conservatively until then, taking in tons of fluids (unlike last year) and more or less ignoring anybody passing by. At the top, it was game time, and i gave it everything i had from there on. The super-powerful sun took its toll later in the day, but ample streams on the way back helped to keep my temperature down, as well as some very welcomed cloud cover. I'm very grateful to go 20 minutes faster than last year, on a 3 mile longer course, for 5th OA/7:42. My congrats to @kkroo917 @iberunnin2 @ginalucrezi for a race well run, @runnersroost @runfilrun, and @alpineworks and his mom for ice cold water at top of the "oven." (Idk the roads name, but ohh it was so good.

Yesterday was the longest training day, by duration, that I've had in a couple of years. I know i want #LT100 bad, so just threw myself at the biggest landscapes i could think of. I woke up not-bright-eyed-and-bushy-tailed at 330am on Halfmoon Road #leadville, and was heading up to the second tallest peak in the contiguous United States by 415am- Mt. Elbert @ 14,440ft. My goal was initially to traverse over to Winfield, the 50 mile point of the LT100, and turn around to get picked up in Twin Lakes. I met up with a run group in Twin Lakes, including legend @ironbeard1 :D, who i shared hope pass with. After wading through scree and talus, crossing frigid streams, and hurdling big areas of wind-toppled trees, it was decided pretty unanimously that Winfield was not an option due to deep loose snow on the back side of Hope Pass. A few of us opted instead for Mt. Hope, about 13,950'. The route was steep and spicy, and, 2 hours later we had navigated the round trip 3 miles of razor sharp rocks. Back down in Twin, I sat by the river, reflected on the 25 miles, 8 hours, and 10,300 feet of gain, and had a Sam Adams. Not too bad. Thanks @runnersroost @runfilrun @ltraceseries for the rides and calories ;) #LongLiveTheEndorphins #LiveWhatYouLove #trailrunning #running #run #ultrarunning #mountains #getoutside #exploremore #liveauthentic #goatworthy #rei1440project #udhydrates #zerolimits #embracethespace #neverstopexploring #trailandultra #pushpeaks #livesimply #adventurelife #travel #choosemountains

Recovery run in my red jumpsuit (24 years and still learning to dress) up in the Mt. Evans wilderness. Guess how many other people were up here on a sunday afternoon! None.

The Dirty 30 was a perfect race to start the season. I felt great from the gun and went out hard, seeing just how hard i could push myself. Winding through the canyons and up the mountains was a worthy test, especially in a field of so much talent. I'm happy to take home 6thOA/1stAG, especially after running out of water and drinking from that questionable stream (worth it at least in the moment...) Well done to fellow @ultimatedirectionusa team @timothyallenolson and a shout to @jasonschlarb for pacing the top guys for a while and letting me snag some (not-from-the-river) water. Cheers.
