      I am just forwarding this, I don't know any more
      information than what is below. I know many on the
      list from the "old school" either know Dennis or know
      who he is so I thought I'd pass this along. For those
      who don't know, Dennis is out of the "hardcore-less is
      more-shut up and do it" branch of ultrarunning and has
      been involved in the sport from way, way, way back.
