Since my Pikes Peak Ascent goal will not be met this year, unless they change the new qualifications, I have decided to do other fun and different races.
Here is what I have planned so far:
Run the Republic, climb Denver's tallest building, climb to the 53rd floor. Proceeds benefit American Lung Assocation. www.RunTheRepublic.com
Leap Day 5K and Partay (yes, I spelled that right). An evening race in Fort Collins and party (or Partay) afterwards. Proceeds benefit Project Self-Sufficiency.
I think I am collecting racing bibs and cool event t-shirts.
