Sigh. Feeling older and older. Fighting it the best I can mentally and physically...some days actually feel the clock goes back but then it 'springs' forward in the 'bad' direction soon afterward...

Yeah, definitely the end if yet one more era.

He really accomplished a lot. Even his running was very impressive as he hardly trained. I just read where he took 5 days off to just walk and hike around shortly before he set the record. I read his book but its been 30 years. I think I still have it. If he had been motivated and had the time he might have run at least 3:55 if not better.
