Evan VincentEvan Vincent, age 17, enters his junior year at Maranacook High School in Readfield, Maine this fall.

He qualified for the Junior Nationals at some indoor meets during the winter, and made the US Junior National team in Eugene, OR at a meet in June.  At publication time, he is competing in a 10K race in Minneapolis with the US Junior National team against the Canadian Nation team.

His mother, Sarah Vincent comments, "Evan was lucky enough to meet up with Tom last summer and start working out with him and that has made all the difference in his racewalking. He helped guide Evan to the class B state championship this year. Tom has been a wonderful coach for Evan... a great guy and has helped Evan immensely."

Many of you reading this will have probably never heard of Edward Payson Weston, but when you have read it, I am confident that this great man's label as possibly the worlds greatest ever walker will make you want to discover more about him!

So who was Edward Payson Weston? Where did he come from and what exactly did he achieve during his long career as the “walking sensation” of the 19th and 20th centuries?

Epic travelogues involving walking often inspire us.  Sometimes they defy belief.

We've heard of the Iliad and the Odyssey, told by the blind poet Homer. We know from the New Testament Gospels that Jesus of Nazareth traveled on foot and went into the hills to pray. We learn that Marco Polo traveled to China and recounted his story while a prisoner of war back home. In modern times we have the poet Earl Shaffer returning from WWII to become the first thru-hiker of the Appalachian Trail.
