Go Time

Alright, bib # 199 for the Leadville 100 tomorrow; check that, #661!  Time to go.

Pretty much everything packed & ready to go.  Kick-off is at 4am mountain time tomorrow morning.  Viper will be toe'ing the line with sub 25 hour expectations & more importantly hopes of a sub 30 hour finish!

Check out iRunFar's Coverage page for live coverage, tweets, pics, splits.  They will link to the live time tracking so you can track my splits at each aid station.  My goal is to be to 50 mile or halfway points by 3:15pm mtn time or 11 hours & 15 minutes.  There is an extra 1-2 mile section of trail here, so this could be a bit over 50 miles.  So if I'm a bit late, do not worry.

I started a "Viper Challenge" during the race as well.  Challenge is the most tweets sent by a competitor using the hashtag #ViperChallenge wins a free signed pair of race used Peak II's by Pearl Izumi!  How awesome is that?  Great competition for us mid or back of the packers.  Click the above link to #ViperChallenge to view the tweets.

But in all seriousness; can't wait, this is my first 100 miler.  Hoping it goes well, can't wait for the experience. Looking forward to meeting many awesome people on the trail & hoping my crew has a great experience.  Have a great weekend!
