What's the elevation of Laramie?

Recommended Posts

Elevation in Laramie?  Not as high as in Colorado the last few years.

getting lower everyday with the rising sea level. 

 

People that live in flood plains and along the coast should have to pay an astronomical amount of tax to live in such places or else get NO federal aid to rebuild their homes when they get destroyed by natural disasters. I for one think that it's bull shit that tax dollars go to help rebuild these places constantly. They should not get any government relief because hey stupidly chose to build their homes in a place that it's likely to get destroyed.

HIGH ALTITUDE performance seems to be somewhat of a misnomer.

Yeah, it's ridiculous that the areas that pay what, three quarters of federal taxes get aided by federal taxes!

While some fan bases like complaining about altitude.   Not much you can do there :shrug:

It’s the handicap system put in place by the MWC to compensate Wyoming due to the lack of recruits that don’t want to freeze their asses off.

I don’t mind so much if it keeps them on the coast.

What's the elevation of Medicine Bow Peak? How deep is Lake Marie? How many dead people are still on Medicine Bow peak from the plane crash in 1955? Enquirering minds want to know!

SUDS fans ... when are you guys going to demand for this technology to be employed at most of the MWC arenas?

If you're at high altitude, what's the benefit of training at sea level. (Honest question)

Honestly, no idea. Just seemed like something cool worth sharing.

I also thought it would set up great for a "Sorry SDSU, but our basketball court can't fit inside the altitude chamber" joke. Luckily @BSUTOP25 came through for me

Everything I’ve read says you want the opposite (train high, but live at low altitude, at least for aerobic endurance.)

I think you're right. I stayed at motel in Laramie next to a truck stop by the freeway (I don't remember the name) and ran from there to the WYO campus and back. And I didn't feel much more winded than I normally do after a run, and I live in San Diego which is just above sea level. I don't know the exact distance, but I'm guessing it was around 6 miles? I crossed a bridge over the Laramie river along the way and back so maybe you know where that motel is.

That was a 70 yard run.

  • No way dude. The motel was on W. Curtis St. next to I-80 (near where the 310 in red is). I found the location, but I don't remember the name of the motel.
