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

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
