    This is wonderful. I only wish it was possible to pause the slide show so that I could see who was in the group pictures!

    Hi Lori,
    We are working on some ideas to provide more information on the photos in the gallery. I like your idea of pausing.

    Thanks Jim, we have many people to thank for helping us make it to this milestone. We also have a long road ahead in order to reach our goal to release both the documentary and the book June 2012. Any word of mouth advertising you can do for us is greatly appreciated. The projects will be better by involving more people in the process! Ellen

    Book update: more interviews scheduled for the coming weeks. Terrific evening at the Heinonen House (with Track Town Pizza!) reminiscing about the 1975 collegiate cross country championships in Ames, Iowa. Participants included Dala Ramsey Gant, Jenifer Bates Pleus, Tom Heinonen, Kim Spir and Cathie Twomey Bellamy, who competed for Minnesota, Tom’s alma mater! Small world.
    Kim hopes to complete book interviews by the end of this year. Kim is looking for Paula Berry, Lynda Hughes Sutfin, Rosa Guiterrez, Debbie Adams, Kate Crabbe, Camara Jones Banfield, Tish Henes, Jamila Godfrey, Irene Griffith Linman, Jill Smith and Kathy Picknell Gelhausen, among others.
