  1. THANK YOU, Gary, for all that you shared about your experience at Leadville. Loved listening to you. So many great lessons. Life goes on and there’s so many more adventures out there for you. You keep recovering, regrouping and rejuvenating until you go back out there for your “fun” runs. Bring your smile back too. You are the BEST!


  2. Gary – my heart goes out to you, Brother. You have the heart of a champion and you dealt with this DNF with honor. You continue to inspire me and everyone I’ve conveyed your story to. Keep your head up! Looking forward to seeing you back out on the trails/road.
