Grand Kona Slam

A good friend, Paul T is looking to become the first person to ever complete the Grand Slam of trail running and the Kona Ironman all in 16 weeks.  5 races - 540.8 miles  His blog with race reports can be found here: The GrandKonaSlam

So far he ran his first ever 100 mile trail run, Western States in 20 hrs 14mins or so in late May.  
4 weeks later in mid July he ran the Vermont 100 in a little over 16 hours which was good for 4th place!  
This weekend he runs the Leadville Trail 100.
Followed by Wasatch 100 in September in Utah
Then 5 weeks later he goes to Kona to compete in the Ironman triathlon world championships. 

Why am I telling you this?  
Well, I will be his crew person this weekend in Leadville and will be chronicling his race on a twitter account @grandkonasla

Feel free to follow along!

If you see me out there, come by and say hi.  
I'll be the one in this t-shirt :
