Lyle St. Goddard, 56, is running along a dirt trail on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana.
"It takes me about a lap to loosen up," he says.
Being a hotshot is a young man's game and St. Goddard believes he's one of the oldest hotshot crew members in the country.
"I still can do it," he says. "I just got to keep in shape. I'll be okay."
St. Goddard supervises the Chief Mountain Hotshots, one of the big employers of young men and women on the reservation. They only hire Natives and they can promise good pay and the chance to travel all over the country.
