Rest Peacefully Boy
Rogue Valley Runners lost one of its family members last week. Raleigh was our two-year-old Pixie-Bob that had been with us since, well the White River 50 in 2005. We knew right away he was going to be good luck seeing a he crewed with Carly for my 50-mile championship that day. He was also a constant fixture at Montrail's headquarters in Seattle with Carly all-the-while alluding their top designers as to how to fit a pancake polydactyl (that’s a cat with snow shoe like feet.) I'm sure he picked up more shoe knowledge there than most of us will ever know. We knew he wasn't doing well as we left for Western States but he was able to hang tuff for a couple more weeks proving his indomitable spirit and fight. He will be missed.
