Of all the ultrarunners whose names seem to pop up in conversations, there aren't many I think I'd go out of my way to meet. Meltzer, maybe; I hear he's a nice guy. The one I'd really like to meet is Michelle Barton, who's been tearing up races for a couple of years. She doesn't seem to get the attention she deserves.
There's a great photo of her that just REFUSES to upload here, so once again, a link:

Okay, so maybe my interest isn't completely running related.
