Dylan Bowman's (@PIUltraRun) race report from his course record run at the Leona Divide 50 Mile.

For the better part of the last two weeks, my home has been the road. Since the chairlifts stopped spinning in Aspen on April 15th, my life has returned to single minded dedication to running, without any significant interruptions from “real life.” The seasonal nature of my job has afforded me both the time and resources necessary to temporarily relocate to the comfortable accommodations of my Jeep for an extended tour of the American West. Since I really had no concrete plans ahead of time, the trip has really taken on a life of its own. It has become an evolving project, which I’m calling Vision Quest 2012, because of the solo, quasi-spiritual nature of the experience. My race at the Leona Divide 50 on Saturday was certainly a highlight of the Vision Quest and has helped to rationalize my rediscovery of the run-gypsy lifestyle.
