Our life is a lot like Leadville, actually…

Brad, after I told him how tired my legs are from the weekend: “Oh, yeah, I’m sure. My legs were tired the other day and I realized it was because I stood on them for four straight hours. I’m not used to that right now. (Pause) That’s why Dairy Queen was really good for Leadville training. You’d run 30 miles and then go have to stand for eight hours a shift and it made your legs strong. (Pause) I was talking with Nolan (his friend who has done the race with him before and who Brad is pacing this year) and telling him how the kids don’t sleep and he said that sounded miserable and I told him it was good Leadville training.”
This is who I married: a man who finds the annoyances of life to be good training for a 100 mile race up and down a Colorado mountain. 
I can’t compete with that.
