LINDA PELLETIER Such an inspiration, I run with my dad who’s 74, a spring chicken. LISA DURAND I just listened to an interview with him. He runs three hours a day! EVERY DAY!

ALFRED KEEP What an inspiration for us aging runners. GREG BRYSON As one does when one is AWESOME. Ed for the Lou Marsh Trophy.
