Brush with Running Fame....

.... and i didn't even know it....

So, remember that maniac that i mentioned in the Prairie State Marathon? (the one with the second nature pace).... well, Larry as his shirt read is Larry Macon. After a friend told me his last name i knew i heard it somewhere..

an easy google search would tell you that larry macon holds the world record for most marathons in one year: 106 which was done last year! (he is in his mid-60's) and also did 7 marathons in 7 days... no wonder that pace was second nature!

he was so kind, encouraging and has much more chutzpa than i will ever have. Cheers Larry!!!!
