    Congratulations on your Hardrock win. Every since I chatted with you at McNaughton I’ve been a huge fan and love following your progress. Come back to Pekin someday and run the course when it’s dry and I’ll treat you to golf at WeaverRidge.
    Take care,

    Nice work! A truely impressive performance!
    Perhaps a slight correction needed though:
    The new course record for that direction in the ‘Male Sticks’ (ski poles used) catagory. I do think it is time we start differentiating the catagories.

    Karl may be a Male Stick, but he’s faster than I’ll ever be!!
    Nice work Karl!
    Actually I was poking fun with him at the finish for looking like a Euro tweeker Ferengi using those sticks! He said that they really helped.
    … so maybe another catagory would be a good idea??

    I think Eric Clifton has had a long successful career in the 100 mile category. Sure he strikes out often, but when he connects; it’s a home run! Karl is an amazing runner in the 100 mile trail category, hands down. He just needs truly race at his potential over at Ultra Tour de Mont Blanc!! He’s well seasoned with the Euro poles now so he’ll be in good company over there!
