Slogging To The Top

Here's a link to a video that Joel Wolpert put together that is now featured on The Running Times website. Joel does a great job of not making things too complicated in the making of his films. His film making style actually reminds me a lot of my running style. The finished product comes as close to showing who I am as a runner than anything I've seen or read previously.

Great video. Loved the porcupine story. Jumped to avoid one last week as well and that was exactly what I was thinking.

Awesome video. I was just up in Juneau a month back and he captured the vibe of the area extremely well. Good luck at WS!

i really enjoyed watching the film, very well done, very informative, very good picture of geoff roes.

you've really got the right kind of handle on this whole racing to run rather than running to race thing.

The video was great. Captured what we do(well, what you do and I try to do) very well. Easily as good as Kilian's, and less Hollywood. Maybe you guys can compare videos this weekend :-)

Geoff, i had a dream last night that i was watching you cruising into an aid station at WS in first place! :)
Sadly, living in Europe means I won't see that happening for real but will be hanging onto every piece of info online this weekend!
Good luck, godspeed and give the Catalanian youngster a proper run for his money:)

Thanks for the glimpse into your life, Geoff. I was enjoying watching your stride. The snoring at the end made me feel like I was right there...
