The man in the yellow shorts (about five or six runners from the right) was last. The man in lime shorts was 12th. They are teammates.
If there was a gold medal for heart and perseverance, both would need one.
In fact, most of the runners are dedicated beyond logic.
It’s cool to witness.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
Three 5k’s to celebrate Independence Day 2015. Here are the splits for the official (2nd 5k):
Mile one: 6:53.
Mile two: 6:58
Mile three: 6:29
Final .1 mile: 37 seconds.
Elapsed time: 21:19
The most interesting part was how easy the first two miles were. Kept my breathing through my nose until the final mile.
Update October 13, 2015: No longer taking selfies with sweaty chest thanks to a family member (Eric Chet). The original intent was to capture the profuse sweating to demonstrate what a 56 year old can do when there are no limits.
So yeah, I missed the first “race” of the season. A local 10k was also sponsoring a 2-miler. Perfect. Two miles. Sounded fun since I’ve never run a 2-miler in competition before. Jet lag, falling behind with home chores and family time, I opted not to drive 30 miles before the sun came up.
Good call. Remember, the message in these little daily tales is we have the same challenges. Find a million ways to keep going. Check?
