Over the weekend, Weez, my brother’s gf, and I (oh yeah, and Cabo too!) spectated my brother’s Mt. Evans Ascent road race. It was totally rockin’. Har har har. Rockin’? Mount Evans? Get it? I’m a dork.
Mt. Evans Ascent is a 14.5 mile road race, running from ~10,300ft in elevation up to the SUMMIT of Mt. Evans (14,260ft).
Things to highlight:
– in 1982, our dad ran this exact race. He finished fast enough to receive a piece of the mountain (literally. at the time, they prized speedsters with a chunk of rock from the mtn)
– in 2013, the race directions reinstalled the chunk-of-the-mtn thing, and my brother is a speedster so he, too, received a piece of the rock! Family twinning!
– this is the best spectators course of all times (see video for evidence)
– people who voluntarily sign up for this are crazy. (crazy awesome/ballsy/tough as nails)
We snapped a lot of sweet pics while Will ran by, but we also took video so I spliced together this little montage to show you what his day was like! Will might have been in the pain cave, but clearly, Weez/Cena/I had fun cheering him and other runners along. Showcased by our Gangnam style dance party and tunes blasting from the side of our car. We all had fun.
Congrats, Will! I hope you enjoy the video!
