New York Yankees,Western States 100, Ride and Tie Championship

Today’s blog is about the many people who are helpful in putting my project together. The statement” the sum of its parts is greater than the whole” fits here. I want to start with Peter Golenbock the award-winning writer who has written many books about the New York Yankees, George Steinbrenner, Mickey Mantle etc., and movie actor Tony Curtis. Visit his website to learn more about him. Peter agreed to write a book review for the back cover. His first was “This is a book about senior citizens who run in insanely difficult, challenging races. Are they crazy? Dr. Lieberman urges you to try it and decide for yourself.” I like it and that is only the beginning. You will have to read the back cover to see his final quote. Thank you Peter for your counsel.
The second person I want to acknowledge is Susan Cohn Rockefeller the award-winning author and producer of numerous documentaries. Go to her website or to “Running Madness” the documentary on the 2002 Western States 100 to know her better. Susan has been a real support and has written the forward for my project. She also has given permission to use the documentary in my book trailer. Thank you Susan dear for your assistance and the things you said about me in the writing of the forward.
I also want to thank Tim Twietmeyer for his summary of the 1995 Western states run. Tim described the conditions and the challenges of his winning run. That victory was memorable to him and you will enjoy reading about it too. Tim is also going to write a book review.
Special thanks goes to Mark Richtman a world-class runner, excellent equestrian, and ride and tie champion. Mark described the 1995 World Ride and Tie Championship held in Idaho. The thrilling part of that race was the competition. Mark and three-time winner of the Western states Tom Johnson beat the Wadsworth brothers in their mountainous backyard. Read about that race to get a better understanding of the mind of a world-class athlete.
Others that have agreed to write a book review include Brad Budde, an All-American football player at the University of Southern California, first round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs, occupational therapist,and motivational speaker. Read his web page to find out more about him. Dr. Jeff Herten, dermatologist, Western States finisher, Tevis Board member and finisher, and author also has agreed to write a review for my book.
I am blessed to know these people and consider my life more for fulfilled because of it. I didn’t forget Tony. Watch the blog and see his comments. That’s only part of the story. Thank you Tony.
