Long time readers of the blog know that a) I’m a category 3 idiot and b) I also have idiot friends.
Tomorrow Luke Tilsley, Joel Bush and I will be doing the ‘Longs Peak Marathon’ or a 22.4 (we will pad some ‘lost miles’ I am sure) run from the Long’s Peak Trailhead to Bear Lake and back. Going to be super fun, super excited to be able to do this.
Here is a map if you need to send a search and rescue or a nice cocktail. We do need a restock at Bear Lake, so if you are overly excited to see a sweaty me, let me know.
Here is the milage and elevation.
*UPDATE* We finished! Took about 6:30 to finish. Not a whole lot of flat out there, so the uphills were hikes / very little running and the downs were a pretty slow run protecting the knees.
Just amazing country, great running partners and a perfect weather day. We started at 6:15 and were eating lunch in town at 2.
Jeremy Tanner met up at Bear Lake Trailhead for a restock, which saved me. Huge thank you!
