Remembering the Beautiful Bonds
Three years ago in August of 2012, Randy, Quinn, and friends from Team 2020 Vision Quest completed an epic Bonds traverse that included experiencing the amazing sunset view of Bondcliff from the West Bond summit, above. The traverse involved reaching five spectacular wilderness peaks—Zealand, Guyot, West Bond, Bond, and Bondcliff—and all of those but Guyot counted toward the all-season, forty-eight NH 4,000-footer list that the team would complete in August of 2013 (nearly seven years ahead of their set goal). See Randy’s blog post from that incredible weekend.

New National Media Coverage
As the countdown to Mount Kilimanjaro rolls on, Men’s Health magazine has done a solid story on Randy titled “This Man Ran the Boston Marathon and Is About to Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro—and He’s Blind.” The piece includes a shot of Randy and Quinn atop Mount Chocorua from a fall, 2014 hike. Very shortly afterward, national news and feature website MSN.com picked up the story and added an image of Randy and Autumn in the seats at Gillette Stadium for a Patriots game last fall, and video of Randy being interviewed on Patriots Day, 2015, before his strong Boston Marathon performance. Finally, national running magazine and website Runner’s World also picked up the story on its Facebook feed.
Meanwhile, in Baltimore, producers from radio station WNST saw the Men’s Health story, phoned Randy and did an excellent 19-minute interview.
