Absolutely no need to apologize. This is the first time I've seen it and I'm a regular poster.

Yes don't apologize... I've not seen it either - and anyway, everyone hates highpilgrim around here...

It doesn't look as if the vid is current.

Definitely planning on Leadville and Imogene.. We'll have to plan a few big elevation training runs in early spring. Hope the tenmile/Mosquito Traverse was successful, I was disappointed I couldn't join. Looking forward to a trip report!

High Five!
