Thanks for being there.
I recently after Nationals, let my coach talk me into going to Leadville and volunteer at both the start and finish. He always knows what to say and when. He tricked me into going to Nats, by paying my way(I have since payed him back) and he knew what he was doing taking me to Leadville. I am mesmerized! I listen to your podcasts all day and take notes. Thank you so much for all you do. I feel like I am attending LCU(Leadville Cycling University) Mike Taglio(Mike T from Tenn) Did I say I’m 76 and I am always hearing 1. When are you going to quit all this, and 2. Why do you do that to yourself, and so much more. My coach is the best(BCIEH) best coach I ever had. And now I have found you all, and now know “There are more crazies like me”.
Lining up for my first Leadville Trail 100 and this podcast is keeping me motivated during these cold, winter months. Also, I love hearing about what works and what doesn’t.
This is my favorite podcast, great insight into the Leadville 100 MTB race.
