Mountain Dell volunteer groomer Karl "Speedgoat" Meltzer broke the speed record for a supported run on the Appalachina Trail this week. Karl ran from Maine to Georgia, 2,190 miles through 14 states, in 45 days, 22 hours and 38 minutes. He averaged more than 47 miles a day of trail, every day, for 45 days. Karl has more 100 mile running victories than any other person. We offer our congratulations, and expect that he will be recovered and ready to groom in a few months.
