It’s the day of the race ya’ll! After 8-months of training and anticipation, The Leadville 100 Trail Run is finally here. This special edition of The BibRave Podcast – and all of our race-week coverage – is brought to you by our friends atAthlinks and Aftershokz!
In this week’s episode, we feature a few different segments around the lead-up to race day, including our special interview with Ian Sharman – 3x winner of the Leadville Trail 100 and previous guest of The BibRave Podcast – recorded just 2-days before the race. Ian brings us behind the scenes of his race prep, talks about how he’s feeling going into race day, and what it would take to win his fourth (!) Leadville.
We also feature an overview of Tim’s race-week prep, Jessica describing what it takes to crew a 100-mile race, and a full gear download on all of Tim’s race-day equipment.
Finally, we share the group’s final preparations before the race! The pacers arrive in Leadville and share some special moments with the runners, including some “thank you” gifts and a special reflection on their running careers with the help of Aftershokz and Athlinks. We capture the excitement and energy of the “last supper” and send Tim, Matt, and Pizza Steve off with a bang!
