Today Scott Jurek was at my local running store, Wasatch Running Center. He did a group run, then talked about his book, answered questions and did a book signing. I was so very excited to be there! He was a very nice guy and made it a point to run a little bit with everyone in the group. I told him that I read his book and about my first ultra. We talked a bit about the Antelope Island runs and he asked me if I was going to do another ultra. I told him I was going to and that I felt good afterward. He commented that that meant I did my training right!
In from the run and geeked as ever.
Poor Katherine was having a fight with asthma today and asthma was telling her who is boss. She just came for the book signing.
At the end of his talk he did a few give always. I knew that the person in his book who said "Be somebody" was Dusty! I got a package of kinesiology tape. I've never used tape before, but hey, I have the chance to try it now.
Waiting in line.
My turn! What a nice guy. He was very humble and appreciative to everyone. It was a pleasure to meet him!
Katherine and Scott
Yes, Scott Jurek, I will!
Oh, and don't forget the awesome buttons that Katherine made us and he signed! You know this is going on my hydration pack!!!

*A lot of the other runners actually made it a little farther than me, because you know I was at the back of the pack. But, hey I don't care. I got to run with Scott Jurek!
