Diane Van Deren (Read 464 times)

    This morning a friend and I were running a trail in Douglas County, Colorado.

     

    We ran into Diane Van Deren and did a few miles with her.

     

    Wonderful story.

     

    Very nice person.

        Yeah, I ran Hardrock and was not too far ahead of Diane... so saw a lot of ESPN crew, including helicopters.  Can't wait to see the piece they do.

            I ran into Diane incidentally again this weekend.

             

            She told me about her 1,000 miler.

             

            Smokes.

             

            Very nice person.

              There was an article about Diane in Trail Runner magazine about a year or so ago.  It's amazing what she has been able to accomplish.

               

              Gosh, haven't heard from all three of you in ages and here you all are in one single post!  Howdy!!  Smile

               

              Chris - How'd you do at Hardock?

                Did anyone ever see the ESPN thing?

                  As a fellow epileptic, I'm somewhat jealous of Diane.  Although I'm not sure that I'd trade my sense of direction for complete surgical resolution of my seizures (in lieu of the drugs I now take), it would be cool to ditch the ability to recall time spent suffering on the trail.

                   

                  Someday I hope to meet her.  Hopefully not at a race, because she'd easily hand me my hat.  :-)

                    The reason that asked, I was there(Hardrock) as well & saw the film crew , but have never seen or heard of anyone seeing it! So just curious.

                      Tony C paced her at some race (I want to say cascade, but I could be making that up).  He had some interesting stories.

                       

                        Never saw the ESPN story.  Maybe it didn't end up airing(?).
