Brian Robinson Pre 2009 Western States 100 Interview

"In 2008 Flyin' Brian Robinson set a course record of 55hr 42min. He was the first person to hike the 3 major N-S U.S. trails in a single calendar year: Appalacian, Continental Divide, and Pacific Crest, 7400 miles in 300 days. " that is the description of flyin' brian robinson on the barkley marathon website. i am admitedly infatuated with this seemingly impossible 100 mile race in tennessee, and after hearing how he set a new course record (yes i wish i had video taped that) he was nice enough to give me a quick interview. brian finished in 45th in a time of place in 22:52:47.

It was fun watching Brian on the live WS webcast. He seemed so consistent throughout the race. You can tell his lifetime devotion to the trail has given him some great discipline. If I can complete 5% of what he has accomplished in his life. I'll be a happy man.
