Picture From Scott Jurek and Anton Krupicka

There are lots of runners I admire and look up to. But top on my list is Scott Jurek. This guy is arguably the most dominant ultrarunner in the world. He won the Western States 100 miler SEVEN times in a row. He has won Badwater a few times. His recent book Eat and Run was an instant New York Times Best Seller. The guy is amazing.

I also admire ultrarunning freak of nature Anton Krupicka. Not only does he look like Jesus in running shoes, but he is insanely fast and featured in the movie Unbreakable.

My friend Cherie Santiago works at Ultraspire and worked at the Outdoor Retailer Expo. She emailed me the most awesome digital autograph from Scott and Anton!

I thought this was so kind of Cherie to talk to these guys and get a picture for me. Not only is she one of the nicest friends you could ask for, but she also has some serious hops. Thanks Cherie!

  3. Nice score with the photo. I wish I had a friend who worked at Ultraspire. Ok mostly because I wish they could hook me up with a spry vest haha, but also because I think U/S has some of the best and up and coming hydration products for ultra runners and we're going to be seeing a lot more of them.

  5. I saw both of those guys at Scott Jurek's book signing here a couple of months ago. Anton DOES look like an ultra-Jesus. Have you seen his blog? It's AWESOME. I read it every week but don't comment because I'm too shy in the face of his bad-assery. Here's the link: http://antonkrupicka.blogspot.com/

    He always has good photos, too.
