About Embracing Grit:

Endurance athletic events are only for young, elite athletes that can dedicate their full time and energy to these endeavors, right?  Wrong. 

Jumping directly from the marathon distance of 26.2 miles to the mystical distance of 100 miles, 26-year military veteran Tony Hofmann dispels this notion by completing the legendary 100-mile “Race Across the Sky” in Leadville, Colorado–the highest incorporated city in the U.S.  

Putting grit into action, Tony chronicles his journey and proves that common athletes who work full time while raising a family can still achieve uncommon results on one of the largest ultra-marathon stages the sport offers.  

Learn how an indomitable spirit combined with a rock-solid training plan can catapult one to conquests once thought unimaginable.
