iRunFar interviews Liza Howard and talks about the 2010 Leadville 100 women’s field.

[After sharing two Top-10 Leadville 100 accounts with iRunFar readers (Garett Graubins's and mine - Part 1 & Part 2), we thought we'd share the story of Ken Fries, a first time 100-mile finisher who finished in the final hour before the 30-hour off. This 42 year old from Austin, Texas found the race far [...]
[Garett Graubins, a contributing editor for Trail Runner Magazine and friend of iRunFar, has graciously shared his 2009 Leadville 100 race report with us and we, in turn, share it with you.
