S3E24: Talking with Life Time about the LT100 in 2021 and Beyond

9/22/2020
Our first guest this season was Michelle Duffy, Associate Marketing Director at Life Time, talking about the LT100 2020 registration challenges. Little did she (or we!) know that by the time we talked again, that would be the smallest challenge the team (and she personally) would have dealt with. We're happy to have the 2020 season behind us, to be looking forward to 2021, with Michelle on the mend and on the mic...once again, answering our questions about plans and logistics for next years'...

S3E23: Life Time's Kimo Seymour Talks About the Future of the LT100

9/8/2020
Kimo Seymour — President of events and media at Life Time, not only has his thousand-mile buckle, he’s finished the Leadville 100 UNDER eight hours every time he’s raced. In other words, we could learn a thing or two about this race from this guy. But we didn't bring Kimo on to talk about the course or race day tactics (at least not this time). It’s been a bad year, simply put, for racers, and we wanted to talk with the guy whose job it is to look past the problems we’ve got right now, and...

John Callahan is of course one of those two, and TODD MURRAY is the other...and we’ve got a full hour with him.

8/17/2020
Last Tuesday, Fatty and Lisa went to Leadville, checked into their AirBnB, went to bed, and then got up and rode the Leadville 100 course — with a stowed ice chest as their sole support. It was a hard day. A slow day. A day of re-learning some very important things about the Leadville 100.

This episode may not convince you to RACE the LT100 on a...

5/21/2020
Leadville's community and medical professionals have done a terrific job slowing the spread of the coronavirus. But the virus is still a problem and short of a miracle, there's no way the small community of Leadville could host thousands of racers and support crew this summer. In this show, we hear from two people--Dr. Lisa Zwerdlinger and Dr. Dylan Luyten--who have been leading the charge to keep Leadville and Lake County Healthy.
