The Leadville Trail 100 Run, the "Race Across the Sky," is one of trail running's most prestigious races. Summerfield's John Doggett will compete in the race in the Colorado Rockies for the first time on Aug. 18.
He joins me in this – finally! – new episode of The Running Shorts Show. We'll discuss all things Leadville, including training, nutrition leading up to the race and his refueling during it, and we'll finish by talking about the Doggettville 12 that John's family will host on Sept. 15.

Sometime, some place
I did someone wrong
And now I'm suffering with the blues
Don't know just where
Or why, or how
I must have been wrong
'Cause now I'm suffering with the blues
Why does your love taunt me
Haunt me through the night?
When I know that you don't, oh want me
If you did you'd be here by my side
I must have hurt you deep down inside
Or why else would I be here
Suffering with the blu-ooo-ues?
Oh-oh, why else would I be here
Suffering with the blues?
