And this.  This is good. Both bands courtesy of Sweden.


In my head the entire race:

Congrats on grinding out another Leadville Tony.

Where do you dredge up these bands? Very unique indeed

Barry Bliss said...

Good essay on the race.

You can be proud of running with guts and determination.

Great about the shin.

I can't decide whether I'm more impressed with your taper las week or your tenacity during the race. Regardless, I'm impressed. Good to see you last week and happy to see you with a bib number again. Good work.

Dude.. Tony!.... You still rock in my book and your a true inspiration to myself and many out there. I still watching "Indulgence" with shock and awe! Stay true to yourself, and like you said in your own documentary. "If all I did was run to do good in race...well that's not enough for me to go out everyday for 4-5 hours....I have to enjoy (love) what I'm doing...running"

You started it all for me and that was the beginning and ending of everything and somehow it feels like, even despite your own long history of climbs, you're best days lie ahead.

Thanks for the inspiration, Tony! I visited your blog for the first time two weeks ago. Started to run the next day. Haha! - But hey, Congrats on your efforts!! Excited to hear about more adventures in the mountains.

I just required some information and was searching on Google for it. I visited each page that came on first page and didn’t got any relevant result then I thought to check out the second one and got your blog. This is what I wanted!
