Larry’s Half Marathon Experience and Good Laugh

Larry’s in the Green Celebrating with Other Beach Runners

On sunday, I ran the Long Beach Half-Marathon. I was within 100 feet of the finish line when the runner ahead of me was announced over the loudspeaker. A 79-year-old man…..with a cane. Looking around, it was just he and I. In split-second thought, I assessed my belief system and values, respect for my elders, personal integrity and character and with a crowd gone wild cheering him on….I passed his ass!

Viva la the near 49-year-old!
