We started with this adorable sketch...
We found this drawing posted on our 100 Mile Club Facebook Page and a few other places too. To save our lives, we can't figure out where it originated, but recall vaguely that it was from a little guy who was about to make his 100 miles. We love the claw hands and the surprised/excited face. We love the stick-up hair and the backwards 100 Mile Club Tee. We just love it.
If you know anything about the rockstar who drew this, PLEASE please contact us...
The fame of this little sketch grew.
It reminded us of a pretty famous painting.
The Scream by Edvard Munch
It would be the center of our Run4Kids Day. We would use it anywhere we could and feature him on the buckle and medal for this epic event. Full-on kid-designed and inspired!
This funny little drawing took on a life of its own, showing up on profile pictures of some of the best ultrarunners out there. There were lobbies for a 100 Mile Club shirt featuring this little guy, and we decided to do that and one (TWO!) better...
This year, with the help of Tracy Thomas and Marvelous Mud, we made amulets!!
