I think when you get up to Leadville and do that race, the World is divided into two groups:
A-those that trained and entered the Leadville 100
B-All Others.

And at this point, I think that the A Group really doesn't want helpful suggestions from the B group. Hence the rather short response you received when you attempted to be helpful.

But may I hasten to add that at my level, I appreciate your suggestions when you take the time to write them into my log. Thanks.

Well, its simplistic to divide things into groups like that. Reaction will very dramatically depending on the individual's make-up. There are some runners at the top of the game who are kind and aware and will respond to any suggestion on its own merits. I always welcome suggestions also, whatever 'level' I may or may not be, as I have noticed that the more I think I know, the more I am likely to overlook something obvious. Thanks for your interest - feel free to make suggestions any time!
