Arrowhead 135

There was a good profile in today's paper about Pierre Oster, the founder of the Arrowhead 135, a 135-mile, self-supported snow-trail ultramarathon for runners, bikers and cross country skiers. He lives in White Bear Lake (my home town!) and commutes by bike to his job at Park Tool in Mahtomedi. He used to design military grenade launchers, but now designs bike tools. Pretty cool stuff.

Here's the link to the story:

I've heard about Pierre before.
My boss, also an ultra-marathoner, knows him and I've heard his name brought up when discussing some of the long runs.
