This Thursday we will have local Ultra Marathon Runner Charlie Engle. Chris Justice & Bobby Christiansen (members of Gate City Rotary) have known Charlie for many years & shared some very interesting long run experiences with him locally as well as out West.
Charlie visited Gate City Rotary in 2007 and spoke about his 2006 run across the Sahara Desert.
Many of you probably also know he's had some other interesting experiences since 2007 - including a government paid holiday at the Federal Correction Institution in Beckley, WV.
Charlie will speak about his experiences & probably most important what he sees for his future.
He was interviewed in Greensboro last Fall by Harry Smith and shown on NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams.
