EXTREME RUNNER OF THE WEEK


Each week will feature a different Kickster EXTREME TRAIL and ULTRA Runner as the RUNNER OF THE WEEK (ROTW). Below is the list of Kickrunners who have already signed up and the week they will be highlighted as ROTW. On Sunday or Monday look for the ROTW thread with your name on it and take it from there. You can use the list of questions provided and do a Q & A format or make up your own presentation for us. If you choose to use the list of Q's you need not respond to all of the questions and, of course, are welcome to make up your own-- -- The list is just a starting point for everyone. Pictures are always welcome too !!


After you have posted your stats, shared all your secret running plans and aspirations with us and bared your sole(s), we will all have the opportunity to respond and pursue a topic, ask additional questions about you that we just can't help wanting to know or just give you a nice warm virtual pat on the back.



** Extreme is a loose term, everyone is welcome to join in ! If you haven't signed up already just let me know that you would like to participate. Send me a PM or respond on this thread.



--Thanks fer playin' everyone !!

I used to run 100% of my miles outside - Its kindof sad - now It is approaching 50/50 - I think I am running 2500 miles per year on TM.
