Who is faster...a 60-something Chiropractor, a 40-something High School Teacher or a 20-something All-American Track Star at the Collegiate level?
The Pagosa Duathlon is the longest running race in the history of Pagosa Springs. And this year the Chiropractor, Teacher and College Athlete have come together to compete in this annual tradition that benefits a local charity called Rise Above Violence.
At some point in the history of Pagosa Springs, each of these men could claim the title of the fastest trail runner around. But to these three, it's not so much about the race but about the relationships developed through the love of trail running. The difference in age is just enough that each could be a father or son. And their relationships have taken on such a significant distinction.
There's so much more to this story that could be told. From how on earth does a 60-something man stay as fit as anyone else out there. To the values of family and career in the midst of training. To becoming a top-tier runner in only three years. To training for the Olympics in 2024. But today we focus on what matters more. The relationships and passing on the baton to the next generation. Watch the video above and then go out on your own trail run.
