The Alumnus Author Speaks!

In 2000, runner Chris Lear ’92 published his book Running with the Buffaloes: A Season Inside With Mark Wetmore, Adam Goucher, and The University of Colorado Men’s Cross Country Team, an in-depth account of the 1998 team’s season. Voted one of the top five best books about running by Runner’s World magazine (2009), Running with the Buffaloes was a natural outlet for Mr. Lear, a 2007 inductee into Pingry’s Athletics Hall of Fame for his own accomplishments in cross country and track at Pingry and Princeton University.

Twenty years after the events that unfolded in Colorado, LetsRun.com has published an interview with Mr. Lear; in it, he credits classmate Andrew Goldstein ’92 for being his editor and a wonderful mentor as a writer. As stated prior to the Q&A, readers who have not read the book and want to avoid spoilers are encouraged to read the book first!
