DOB: December 1958
I became interested in running early on, but it was in 1975 when I began to record running miles, documenting distance, times, plus other observances.
After High School (1977) is when I really felt compelled to run, qualifying for my first Boston Marathon in 1980 and running two more Boston’s in 1986 (2:32:42, 101st ) and 1988 (2:30:05, 110 th ) respectively.
The bulk of my mileage would come during my enrollment at Chadron State College (Nebraska) from 1981 to 1985, running cross-country, indoor and outdoor track and commonly recording 120 miles per week. While in 1982 I recorded 4,001 miles, during this time, my prs were … mile 4:37, two mile 9:37, 5K 15:26, 10K 31:06, 15K 44:45, Half Marathon 1:09:42 and Marathon of 2:22:43.
After college I continued to run and meticulously document daily running activities on graph paper consisting of distance, time, temperature, shoe, and location of runs plus others.
Also, I have written numerous stories at one time or another about events that have occurred while running and I have found that it is not only about time and distance, but of things that have happened between the start and finish of every
100,000 miles recorded on November 20, 2021.
Last, how cool would it be to be listed alphabetically after the legendary Ron
