    Thank you for your comment on my blog! I'm sure Dom was finished long before I was, especially as slow as I had to go because of hubby, but it was a blast keeping up with all the info on FB and running 'with' him. The HTC is definitely on my list of things to work towards!

    Thanks for your comment on my "Leadville 10K" blog. The name of my SparkPage is "Never give up, never surrender!" Those are the words I live by. Even if it kills me!

    I never thought I would be satisfied with a 191st place out of 260 runners. I have a feeling that this may be my best finish ever - because I finished.

    Thanks, Bruce

    Thanks for your comment on my "July stats" blog. One of the most difficult runs I ever did was in Atlanta with 97% humidity at 97 degrees!

    Making no apology, I am a good high-altitude mountain runner. I generally take my age class at races and almost always finish in the top 10%. I don't think I could do that at sea level.

    I have certain physical characteristics that are optimal for high-altitude running. I am 6'1" tall with a 28" inseam. My legs are relatively short and muscular. My long torso gives me proportionally higher lung capacity and I am barrel chested to boot. I blow lung meters off the scale. My heart has enormous volume. I don't have blood in my veins. I have thick red syrup that has a 20% higher red blood cell count than a dweller at lower elevations.

    Sorry for the ramble. This is one of my favorite subjects. I am still faster at sea level than at 9000 feet. I just don't think I would be that competitive at sea level once I lose my high-altitude adaptations.

    Thanks, Bruce
