If you've thought about it, then you ought to try. It's an incredible race. Yes, I finished. Trained for this race for a year and a half...last year, was in Squaw Valley when the race was cancelled for the first time in 35 years because of the wildfires close to the trail. There was no way I wasn't going to finish this race this year. I've run several ultra marathons, this was my first 100-miler. Definitely will try to get into the race for 2010 as well. You ought to try Leadville since you live in Colorado!!
