Runners World story

RW did a brief story on my town bagging exploits. I was worried about the story, but it came out okay. I was happy that they used ten of the photos that I took along the way. The fact checking had me really nervous and they didn't really fix any of the things I objected to (I couldn't see the context on any of the facts so it was hard to understand what they were saying). The one thing that doesn't seem right is the implication that Bill Rogers went town bagging with me. He did not, although I would have liked the company. They asked me who was the most famous person you've run with (and besides Hodgie) I could only think of Rogers who I outkicked one year at the Falmouth 7mile race. Anyway, here is the article and pictures.

It is a pretty damn cool accomplishment. Thanks for posting the print, and congrats again!

Very cool man. Good photo, good clean writeup. I gotta swing over and grab me a copy...25% of NH down for me...only 75% to go!

I think I have almost 1/2 of NH but I have no plans to bag more. Next up: State High Points

BTW: I forgot to rant about the end of the article where they imply that I was sore from town bagging. I was sore from back to back racing (Wachusett Mountain & Trav's trail race).

I just picked up a copy. Do you get any royalties?

So you're half in the bag in NH and done t-bagging?

So many amazing runners in this part of New England and the MA state. I agree, the article is great. I agree, DD, there is a subtle suggestion that maybe while you were running through a nearby town you ran into and alongside BR. Certainly in spirit and in a race you mentioned. Keep logging.

Love the t-shirt Dave! Nice PR for our lovely state!

The t-shirt was the pretty lame. I had a CMS/Polar shirt on underneath and was hoping to put in a plug for my team and sponsor.
