I struck up a conversation with a pilot on a recent flight back from New York. During the course of the conversation, I learned that he was an avid runner, hiker, and cyclist. I told him about our latest One Book Henderson project and offered to send him a copy of Ultra Marathon Man. The deal was that he's to send me pictures of where he takes the book. Above is the first picture taken at Anchorage on Sept 29th. Bill's review of the book states:
"What an inspiring story. I have never before read a book that length in one sitting. Thank you so much for sending me the copy. I am setting hiking and biking goals for next year because of this great read. If you see Dean pass my thanks on to him. Photo taken on coastal trail in Anchorage, AK. Always a nice run or walk after a long flight."
