2016- At a time I thought I was unstoppable, Leadville broke me.
2017- At a time I wanted to run away, Leadville gave me the space to disappear.
2018- At a time I was lost, Leadville found me.
2019- At a time I needed Hope, Leadville is where I found it.
2020- At a time I want to strengthen my mind, I will journey to Leadville once again. I go to follow the path of the Leadmen who know the process of mining the most profitable resources from the darkest places. I will search the deepest depths of myself to find the unknown possibilities hidden in the silence of the night. Learning from the strength and courage I gain, I will ride 100 miles through the highest mountains with the opportunity to again run 100 miles across the sky.
The road is long.
The mountain is steep.
There is one thing this race can’t keep…
I will hold my self-worth near knowing a title or a number will not define me… but I will define myself. I may drift and I may wander never finding a place I can call home, but maybe what I’ll learn is home isn’t a place or a thing but a feeling we get when people accept us for who we are, who we aren’t and everything we can be. That is what I imagine home feels like… and…
Leadville, I’m coming home 🌞🏔
“You don’t find Leadville… Leadville finds you.” ❤️
