I Got My “Yippee!” Card

by Arlyn on March 3, 2011

I’m in.

For the third year in a row, I’ve won the Leadville lottery and the opportunity to race the Leadville 100 MTB race this August.

Ok, they don’t send cards out like this anymore – it was more of a “Yippee!” email.

In 2009, I raced my heart out, finishing after 11 hours and 24 minutes on the grueling course. I returned last year with one of my best friends, Marcos, for my second buckle – it was not to be. Marcos earned his buckle, but I bailed at the bottom of Powerline (inbound) after 8 ½ hours and 80 miles of racing.

So, here we go. On this crazy adventure to race my bike above 10,000 feet in the Colorado Rockies, just to see if I can.

Stay tuned for lots more adventure…
