I saw the movie Race Across the Sky. It really helps you understand what a special event the Leadville 100 is. And well it is very easy to get swept up in the emotion of that movie, I don't think I'll be applying anytime soon. One thing I know about myself is how bad I suck at altitude and this race is held at over 10,000 feet. Plus I think an Ironman might be an easier event. I would categorize Leadville as one of those things that maybe I'll do before I'm 40.....or maybe not.
