Glenn Randall bolted away from the starting line of the 2010 Pikes Peak Ascent, cracking the golden rule of the race: Don’t go out too fast. His early pace Saturday morning was something better suited for a 5k, rather than a 13.2-mile run to the top of 14,115-foot Pikes Peak. The other top runners in the field couldn’t believe their eyes. “I thought it (Randall’s pace) was a joke, to be honest,” said Rickey Gates, who eventually finished third. “For him to do that, it was humbling for the entire field. I don’t think a single person who placed in the Top 10 expected him to be out there … insane.” Yeah, crazy like a fox. His plan worked perfectly, and 2 hours, 9 minutes and 28 seconds later, the guy who started too fast was the Pikes Peak Ascent Champion. Read more here...
