Fitness StatementWas introduced to Marathon running in 1971 by the Monterey Athletic Club while as a pre-VNam Vietnamese language student at the DLI-W Coast-Monterey. Subsequently joined the good culturre & fellowship of WVTC. Ran the March 1971 WVTC Marathon, inc. Boston for the Army following month & got toknow Eric Segal somwhat; and 50+ marathons later, including ultras, score of shorter races, and 2 X Wide World of Sports "Ironman" Triathlon at Kona, am still running 6 times weekly at distances 4-8 miles, and doing a 2+ hour cycle ru;n to Morgan Hill. (sometimes I cycle 2 X weekly). Formal competition is 3-5 races annually. It's so important to workout daily, regardless of external conditions 
Quote“It's "Peace of Mind My Daddy Never Had!!" On the more former competitive dimension, to paraphrase from Vladimir Kutz: I look forwad to working out in bad weather, because it means my competition won't."”

runnerWay to fly in the Ave. Giants Half Bob.! Some years back, while still in the 50's, I recall finishing in the same place with the overhead timer in a 1:26. Now at this run/shuffling 65, it would be an achievement to do it under 2 hrs. Slludos on uholding, the "above 60" banner so well.!! Best, jim barker
