I was on Letsrun during that 1980 Transcon run. It was epic too. 1856 pages of debate. We did not believe a word that tool said and run him through the ringer. There were also intense debates between Ultra dudes and Milers. It was awesome.
I remember that too. It was right after letsrun upgraded to this new format. The Carter-Reagan banter was pretty intense. Many letsrunners liked Carter because he ran XC, but most hated him for the Olympic boycott. Oh, and Cierpinski was a cheater too.
