Pb100 bike

When I signed up for Leadman back in January, I knew the wild card for me would be the hundred mile mountain bike race.  I wasn’t a bike rider and I had never done a bike race before, and suddenly I was registered for one of the most famous mountain bike races in the world.  I projected nothing but confidence, telling anyone who would listen that if I could run 100 miles then biking 100 miles would be cake.  But inside I was really worried I had blown $850 and had given all my friends a chance…See More

Learning to Ride

So far the hardest part of Leadman training has been finding the time to squeeze it all in.  For some reason, work still expects me to put in at least 40 hours a week despite my quest, and the wife still expects me to do stuff around the house.  Hell, my dog won't even give me a pass on taking her out for a walk at least twice a day.  Despite that horrible oppression, for April I got in 34 hours running and 28 hours of riding.  May saw 43 hours of running and 25 hours on the bike.My first big…See More

"Good luck JT!  You are my idol!  I'll probably be one of those guys you'll crush on the run......this will be my first attempt.  I like your simple plan and hope to apply it to just finish the LT100 run in under the time…"

Leadman 2014

My luck finally ran out at the Hardrock lottery this year.  Despite being in the old timer’s category and thus being a near shoe-in, I now sit far enough back on the wait list that I won’t get into the race.  Instead of moping around feeling sorry for myself I decided to try a new challenge: Leadman.If you don’t know, the Leadman is a series of races that all start and finish in Leadville.  The Leadville…See More

Hardrock 2013

For a few tense minutes we weren't sure we would even get to Silverton for the start of Hardrock.  Shortly after leaving Old Colorado City and heading up the pass towards Woodland Park, we were greeted by a three foot wall of mud and water and sticks and rocks and other cars.  Scary stuff.  You can see my award winning documentary on the flood over here.

We were hit by another car but escaped with only minor damage.  Three…
