Keep on running

Good heavens! Congratulations to Hans Schmid, winner of the Dipsea trail race in California - the oldest trail race in the US, this year's being the 102nd running of it. Although it's a handicap race, for a 72-year-old to win any race is extraordinary. And inspirational. A successor to Jack Kirk, the Dipsea Demon, perhaps? No, I don't think anyone could assume that mantle: he'll have to take a different title.
