    I contacted Andrew. He says no news outlets have picked it up yet. I wrote to the ex-senior editor of Competitor Magazine, now freelance I believe, and a freelance writer for the Atlanta Journal Constitution about his story to see if they'd be interested. If they don't, I can try some other contacts.

    Way cool TJ! Yeah I saw his pic keep popping up in FB and I had been following the solstice over the weekend. Guess it is fresh news!

    Unfortunately, it was turned down by the ex-senior editor at Competitor, but at least he had the decency to write me back, so I thanked him. I'm still waiting to hear back on the other, and I have other contacts too.

    I wrote to some more freelance writers (Competitor Magazine and New York Times), ESPN directly as well as a staff writer of theirs, LA Times staff writer.

    I will try some others like Running Times, Runners World, Running Journal, Live Strong, SF Gate, and the Wall Street Journal if I don't hear back soon from the others.

    Running Journal replied. They're interested in doing a piece on Andrew. I put them in touch. We should have an article soon.

    I bet that will be a fun experience. Will Andrew be doing it again this time?
