CAT blog gets recognition in Charlottesville's Daily Progress


Mark Lorenzoni, owner of Ragged Mountain Running Shop and running coach extraordinaire, also writes a weekly running column in Charlottesville's Daily Progress. This week, Mark highlighted the recent significant achievements by area trail runners, Jennifer Pharr-Davis, who lives in North Carolina and just blew away the AT thru-hike record (a 1994 record held previously by a man), and Andy Jones-Wilkins, the new head of Tandem Friends School, who finished in the top 10 at this year's Western States 100-mile race (It is Andy's 8th top-10 finish at Westerns!).

Mark finished off his column by pointing to our blog and noting that Sophie Speidel, among other talented runners, are part of the exciting CAT scene. Thanks for the support Mark!

You can find Mark's column here.

Coverage of Pharr-Davis' accomplishments can be found here and here, among other places. Catch a pre-Western's interview of Jones-Wilkins by Byron Powell here and a post-race interview of Powell by Jones-Wilkins here.
