YOUR STORY: I like running, but I like making high school
kids run fast times even more. Actually, I started running when I was in 2nd grade (after watching the Soeul Olympics).
My brother, Matt the Rat, and I would play the Olympics and do high jump, hurdles, long jump, etc. with homemade equipment.
Then I raced my Dad in the 800 on an old country road. I am pretty sure I kicked his butt. I'm also pretty sure he was
wearing cowboy boots on the blacktop. It was great. I still like running, I just don't run as much as I am able
to. It's a shame.
