Team 9 from Outer Space

    He ran sub-4 last year. Really an amazing ambassador for Canada and for our sport. Smile

    Three half marathons later, I got a number. Half Fanatic #9292. :)

      A great example to any runner.

      Surely, most of us are not - will not be - able to come even close to his record-beating performances, after he (re)started running in his early 40's -- and until 85 years-old.

      But the persistence and dedication, those we can try to replicate. And we certainly should. Smile

        • Dude ran a 2:54 at 73 years old.

        Wow.

        RIP

        I say things. I do things. Does it all have to make sense?

          Last May I was feeling good about my 1:57 Half (PR) at 58 yrs old until I read about Ed running a 1:50 Half at 85 on the exact same day! This man was an incredible runner and quite humble as well considering he held many many World Records in running.
