This is the infamous road that is known by most as the worst part of the Leadville Trail course.

The Lonely Road…blessed it be

I told myself that this year, I was going to embrace and enjoy this damn road. I put in my iPod for the first time and turned it up. Before I could increase the volume on a Metallica set, Cindy Schlandt caught up to me to pass a message to Jason when I caught him

(this was a funny thought considering…if the dude was in front of me, not likely I am going to catch him). Regardless, I ran the whole road into Treeline. My crew did not meet me here. I sent them onto to Twin Lakes.

I made it to Treeline keeping my 20-minute lead on my plan.
