Legend In My Mind

Okay here I go with this blog business. My nephew Caleb got me into this and I'm a true rookie but willing to learn. Will add something brilliant soon.
This is me on the left in white hat at the finish line at my first marathon at the first annual Suzuki Rock and Roll Marathon in San Diego California in the spring of 1998.
One of my running buddies Larry White is on the right and beat me by 2 or 3 seconds. Well, he was 3 or 4 years younger than I at the time.
I was 54 then and fast!
Think I'm slowing down or maybe it's the heat that's zapping me. Am training now for my 6th marathon, assuming I survive the summer here in the windy city. It's not going too great right now. Will see what happens.
