Speedgoat On CNN

AT ultrarunner Karl Meltzer gets a little face time

Karl "Speedgoat" Meltzer might not be in range of nabbing the Appalachian Trail speed record, but he's getting attention for the intensity of his effort just the same. Check out a worn and weary Karl on CNN Headline News show "News To Me:"



I can't say I'm a fan of the show's "IN YOUR FACE!" graphics and narrative style, but it's nice to see a trail warrior like Karl get a little airtime. I'd say he deserves it, what with the trenchfoot and all.

— Ted Alvarez
