As I milled around before Saturday's Chippewa Moraine 50K race, it suddenly dawned on me that I had never intentionally photographed one of the invaluable benefits of ultrarunning; the ultra runners.
So, before I post a review of Saturday's run, here are some of the invaluable folks associated with ultra running in the upper Midwest. I certainly don't have everyone. Each of these people has impacted my running in some manner. If I missed you, I apologize. The most obvious missing person is Peter Grimes, my running partner for the past two years.
Wynn Davis - race director
John Storkamp - overall men's winner
Larry Pederson and Nancy
Helen Lavin - overall women's winner
Darryl and Lynn
Henry Lewis, friend from church; first ultra.
