Upcoming talk on Hopi runners at Tewanima pre-race dinner

For those who might be interested….

I will be speaking on Hopi runners and U.S. marathons at this year’s Louis Tewanima Footrace Pre-race “carb” dinner. The event will take place at the Shungopavi Community Center – Village of Shungopavi, Hopi REz – Saturday Sept. 5 @5PM MST.

I first presented at the Pre-race dinner in September 2012. Cindy Yurth of the Navajo Times did a nice write-up about the 2012 presentation and race in her article “Tracking Tewanima.” I blogged about it here.

I look forward to seeing some of you at the event!

    Mathew, I lived in Parker Az for nearly 15 years and personally knew Phillip Zeyouma and his family and I think I have met you at some point in time in the 1960″s and late 1970. Did you ever live in or near Parker Az?
