Is that a picture of Larry…or Mark Spitz?

Most heartfelt congratulations Larry.  It takes a lot to impress me, and I am impressed.

Larry Williams writes:

Thanks to all for the kind words.

It was not as much if an accomplishment as it might appear. There were only a few other competitors in my age bracket this year. In some events I was the only one.

Getting back in shape (a year ago I was on crutches for over a month) was the real accomplishment as I see it. Stressing and old body and getting back into a training routine was comforting. I had been there before and it felt really good. Just really slow. Adapting, well trying to adapt for the altitude, was a challenge that I failed.

My real 'victory' was the joy of competition and meeting other old guys to run/play with. When we lined up for our races we invariably would forget our lane assignments; once we realized that we all really got a good laugh.

Happy trails to all.
