The Frenchy**

Jacques “The Frenchy” Houot (pronounced “oo-oh”) is a Colorado icon. He is an 82-year-old athlete who gets after it non-stop on skis, mountain bike, and the cyclocross race circuit. Jacques is an accomplished athlete, but the real story is how he inspires us with his contagious love of life, epic tales of survival, ability to counter aging through laughter, and his impact on the community over decades.

How To Run 100 Miles

The odds were stacked against Jayson Sime early in life: poverty, homelessness, dyslexia, bullying. But he fought, literally and metaphorically, on his way to a successful career as a political organizer. In 2017, he entered his first 100-mile ultramarathon, betting on his resilience to carry him to the finish line.
