            Much better weather than last year greeted runners Saturday for KMXT's annual Run the Rock races. A year ago, of course, the storm of the decade blew through, causing floods, landslides, road closures, and a one-week race postponement. Sunshine was the order of the day this year, and the crowded field reflected the nice weather.

            In the marathon, run from the Coast Guard base to Anton Larsen Bay and back to the golf course, persistence paid off for Jane Lanford. From Fairbanks, she came down for Run the Rock last year, only to have the 26-mile race cancelled. This year she set the course record with a time of just 3-hours 45-minutes 47-seconds. Howard Valley was the first male and second over all, with a time of 3:56:53

            Bonnie Brooks and Winona Godwin were the second and third women across the line, while Steve Rounsaville was the second male. Third in the men's division was a tie between Justin Sekerak and Anthony Will.

            Brian Glaspell won the half-marathon in a time of 1-hour 27-minutes 40-seconds.  Ryan Gann was second and Donald Zimmerman third. Sally Skimin won the women's division in 1:34:02, followed closely by Sarah Rohrer and Jennifer Foster.

            New this year was the 10-kilometer race. Michelle and Anu Parekh won their respective divisions: Michelle taking the women's race in 44-minutes 50-seconds, and Anu the men's in 41-minutes 10-seconds. Meg Inokom and Cathleen Dunbar were second and third for the women, while Collin Barraugh and Robert Stouffer placed and showed in the men's race.

            In the very-well attended 5-kilometer race, Jaymi Bethea showed why she is the state cross-country champion, winning in 18-minutes 51-seconds, which is more than three minutes off the race record. She was followed by Sarah Ng and Allie Smith. On the men's side, Derek Deal was first in 17:38, followed by Levi Thomet and Caleb Nymeyer.

              Alaskan Author Dan O'Neil was a recent guest on KMXT's Friday Morning Show. O'Neil grew up in San Francisco and was educated at Berkeley. He moved to Alaska in the 70's where he worked on the pipeline and in construction. In addition to writing, O'Neil served as a researcher at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and as an opinion columnist at the Fairbanks Daily News Miner. His first book, "The Firecracker Boys" was originally released in 1994 and was highly acclaimed by critics, historians and educators. The recently re-released book tells the story of how, in the late 1950's, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission tried to explode megatons of thermonuclear bombs near the arctic village of Point Hope. The fight to stop the project led to the birth of "The Tundra Times" (the first Alaska Native newspaper) and the environmental movement.

             O'Neil was in town to deliver a lecture at Kodiak College. At KMXT he was interviewed by two Kodiak High School journalism students: Willy Roberts and Sam Tuckfield
