What about the Power of Two?

Nice coverage of the Power of Four race on Saturday; however, your writer forgot something very special (“Smith, Laird take Power of Four crown,” Feb. 25, 2017, The Aspen Times). There was a second race at the same time — the Power of Two. It was shorter but equally important or even moreso for many people, and you neglected to even mention it.

Particularly remarkable were the winners — a father and son team, participating as the Hungry Hobbits, with a sensational time. Brian Johnson and Caden Klein are longtime Aspen residents, and Caden is an Aspen Middle School student. Equally outstanding is that Caden’s age is 14. Other participants were also from Aspen Middle School.

I certainly hope that there will be a follow-up report to recognize the young winners.
