Role Model Badass

Found this video--I think this guy is the grandfather of a girl I went to school with. This guy is 72, and has competed in the Mohican 100 at least 12 times--finishing the 100k a total of 7 or 8 times, and the 100 mile race for his fourth time this year.


The Mohican 100 includes two races: 100k and 100 miles of mountain bike singletrack, dirt roads, and gravel, with 11,000 of elevation gain, across four Ohio counties.  I've previously listed it as a "bucket list" goal. I'm stoked to think that I've got hopefully 42 more years to work my way up to such a challenge.

Hopefully it will happen sooner.
