The Star Valley Independent

A few years ago, when I completed the Rocky Mountain Slam, I chronicled my adventures for the local paper, The Star Valley Independent. Doing so helped me carry through 4 very tough races (Bighorn, Hardrock, Leadville, and the Bear) in one very long summer-it keeps a person honest when eighty-year-old grannies are checking on your training when you bump into them at the local hardware store. This summer they have asked me to try again as I prepare for the U.S. 100k trail championships (Where's Waldo) and defending my title at the Bear, which only shows that I am a lucky man with an exciting life-or that things are really slow for local media:) Above is an example of my last article I wrote during the Rocky Mountain Slam.

This was from 2006 at the Bear-The last leg of the Rocky Mountain Slam. I'll post my latest article that came out yesterday shortly.


those grannies can be hardcore.
