#The2016Challenge pt. 5: A Battle Against My Younger Self
In my last post, I shared what it was like to run my first ultramarathon as I trained for an Ironman. The furthest I had run prior to that ultra was when I was only 19-years old, competing in the legendary Imogene Pass Run from Ouray over the mountains to my home in Telluride. Over 20 years later, as a 42 year old, I found myself at the Imogene starting gate again determined to beat my previous time from when I was a teenager.
This time I was more disciplined, armed with an increased pain tolerance, and I had all my life’s challenges and roadblocks to fuel my desire to succeed. So, in September of 2016, a few months after my ultra and about 6 weeks before the Ironman, I beat my 19 year old time by 12 minutes.😊 Photo with Corie Chandler who helped my time considerably as I was chasing her the entire downhill. ...

I’ve had a long standing love affair with India and, more specifically, the mountains of the Himachal Pradesh. Just everything about India makes me smile… especially being immersed in big, beautiful Indian mountains with lots of fresh powder 🏔️😄

Such awesome words from Jeremy Jones and an amazing ad from CLIF Bar! 🙏😊
I love this ad from CLIF Bar. They have fueled/supported me for almost 20 years.
At first it was all about the tasty food that has propelled me through 1,000’s of days of adventure.
Over time I got to see the inner workings of the company and have been in awe of how the company is run and what it stands for.
It is truly the gold standard of how to run a company and something I study very closely and try to implement at Jones Snowboards.
It’s been an honor to be a part of.
This is their first TV ad in 27 years and it is awesome!! ... See MoreSee Less
If you tuned in to my last few posts, you know about training for an Ironman and about riding my first 100 mile bike race. Another goal I set for myself in 2016 was to run an Ultra. I picked the The Broken Arrow Skyrace in Squaw Valley, Lake Tahoe.
The course was 50km with over 10,000 feet of elevation gain. This was by far the longest I had ever run and it was definitely more grueling than I could’ve imagined. But I was learning new things about how to train and how to push myself in a race environment versus how sparingly i was accustomed to using my energy on a long, drawn-out expedition. In an 8 hour race, versus a month long expedition, i found I could put it all on the line.
One of the coolest parts of the race was connecting with other racers along the course. I would join up with completely random individuals and then run with them for miles, sharing motivation and encouragement. Also, if I crashed and burned there was a medical tent and amazing volunteers to help me straightaway- for sure this was something I was entirely unfamiliar with... 📸 @ming.t.poon ...

Awesome. Curious, have you tried the keto diet to get energy from fat and not carbs?
Yo this is getting my type a personality on overdrive
