  • Fourth Full Marathon, April 20, 2015 - the BOSTON MARATHON!

Since my running start, in addition to 3 Full Marathons above, I've completed 25 Half Marathons.  12 of which were in 2014 (one every month!).

Highlights for 2014!

Whitby, Canada Half Marathon - I placed in my age group, 50-54.  It was last place, but still, I placed.  Those dam Canadians are fast!

Phoenix, AZ Rock n Roll Half Marathon - I was beat by a runner, uh, a Blind Runner.  Not partially blind, 100% blind, being led by a rope.

Phoenix, AZ Rock n Roll Half Marathon - I was beat by a guy missing half a leg.  And I do not mean a blade runner, I mean a guy with half a leg, on CRUTCHES!  But he only beat me by a minute or three.

Indianapolis, Indiana Monumental Full Marathon.  I was beat by a speed walker.  The guy was old  and fast. And still beat me after I tripped him three times!

Mount Dora, FL  Half Marathon.  Not only was I beat (again) by a speed walker, I was even reprimanded by him.  "We take offense to the term Speed Walkers, we are called Race Walkers". Needless to say, I corrected myself and called him AS***LE Speed Walker!
