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.
