He ran a 4:57 earlier this summer in the mile so he knew he might have a chance to win. (A sub-5:00 mile is amazing for any age, but Brian is 47!)
Brian collapses after every race and he is fine and we know this. Last night I was taking this photo and an EMT lady came over and looked at me like I was a heartless wife for not helping him! I had to assure her that he was fine...he just likes to get himself together this way!
Maizie is hearing all the exciting details of the race. My mom and Brian's dad were able to come to watch the race too, so it was a great time!
Here Brian is with Nick Berra. Nick is one of the fastest 800m runners over 40 in the world! Brian follows Nick's world races on the internet and Nick is from our area and a high school and graduate school friend of mine. I haven't seen him since 1994 and I was hoping Brian might get to meet him someday. Nick has a huge championship race today in Sacramento, but he ran the Harrisburg Mile last night and crushed the Master's Elite record with a 4:25!!! We all had a perfect evening!
