Hi! My name is Josh Pantleo, I’m sure you have already figured that out by the web address. I have lived in the midwest most of my life. I have also lived in Colorado and California but currently reside in Missouri. I work full time as an HVAC tech for our local school system. I am married to my best friend and we have 2 great kids who are grown. I guess you could say I am an outdoor junkie. I love being outside! You can usually find me trail running, fly fishing, rock climbing or even camping most of the year….yes even in the winter!

I started running in 2017 to lose weight, get in shape and run my first 5k ever. I messaged a friend who was a cross country coach for the high school I graduated from and asked if he’d train me to run a 5k. As we started training, he would take me every now and then to some trails to run. At that point, my love for trail running was birthed. I quickly found it became a good release from the stress of everyday life. I even find myself dreaming of the trails while at work and can’t wait to head out and explore them. I have ran 50k’s, even a self supported one in 2020, all the way down to 5k’s.

Some of the races I have ran:

  • Sylamore Trail 50k and 25K
  • Rockin K 50K and Marathon
  • Leadville Trail Marathon
  • Davids Trail Endurance Run
  • War Eagle Trail Festival
  • Dogwood Canyon 50k, 25k and 15K
