Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

Day 1 softrock. Cody and I started at KT aid station, went up to Island Lake (gorgeous) and Grant-Swamp Pass, ran down the backside (the top part is ridiculously steep and rocky) to Chapman aid where Beth, Tim, and Azusa crewed us. Then hiked up Oscar's pass. Not a very fun pass, plus it started hailing rather hard on us near the top and over into American Basin, which is a very pretty trail. Finished in 7:23 with 5300 climb and 7200 descent. What a neat course.

Softrock day 2- went from Telluride, up over Virginius Pass, then down to Governor's Basin. The truck broke down on Bethany so Cody and I had to run a little ways towards Ouray. Just under 10 miles in 4:16 with 4200 ft climb and 3400 descent. Virginius was much better to run than Oscar's pass.

Day 3 softrock- ran 3 miles up Bear Creek/Engineer with Cody and Bethany. What a neat trail cut out of the side of a cliff. 6 miles RT in 3:10 with 1700 ft climb and drop.

AM- ran up to Grant Swamp with a satellite phone and camera to take pics of the leaders and report their times to iRF. That was fun. 6 miles, 3000 ft climb, 3000 ft descent. Cody was supposed to come but preferred to go to the ER instead with acute liver failure, though he ended up ok.

PM- paced Stuart Air 58.5 miles at Hardrock 100, from Ouray to finish. Hopefully I'll write more later, but it was a great experience. We ran into Timmy Olson at Engineer and summitted with him in a crazy lightning storm (strikes 200 yards from us) with Timmy using my headlamp, ran into Grouse in a driving rain, went over Handies with it raining/windy bringing me close to hypothermia, and ran down to Burrows. Stu hurt his foot/ankle here so walked most of the rest of the way. The section to Pole Creek was long as always, but we laid down in a sunny field for 10 min once the sun was up. The rest was pretty slow but very scenic and Stu was determined to finish despite pain that repeatedly brought him to his knees in tears (literally). The climbs and descents are ridiculously steep. Stu finished just under 36 hours and 26th place. We ran together for 58.5 mles in 24:46 (my longest time run ever, and longest run with someone ever). It was a priveledge to see Stuart finish. 17800 climbing, 16500 descent.

Finished the week with 97 miles with 32000 ft climbing and 31800 descent in 42 hrs 4 min. Wow, over 40 hours of hiking/running. The latter 3 are all certainly records.
