It was a beautiful day in Leadville today, and the marathon went pretty well. The altitude definitely affected me somewhat (starting around 10,ooo ft. and climbing up to over 13,000), but the course was really breathtaking. Time and again when people heard what I was doing, their response was, "and you chose Leadville for your first one?!?!" I took it slow and easy, which wasn't the easiest thing to do, but my legs are thanking me for it now, and will certainly thank me even more tomorrow morn. We made it safely to Casper, WY and I'm ready to run #2 first thing tomorrow morning. I'm still feeling a bit under the weather, but I think the fresh mountain air helped clear the sinuses a bit. I'm excited about tomorrow morning's run, then onward to Bozeman, MT. We ran into some spots of rain here and there today, but the countryside has been amazing. Thank you all, and I will keep you posted tomorrow. Good night!
