    I've known Darryl for years. I recently visited him in his home to ask him about his injury and about his desire to keep running. He has ignored timetables set by doctors. To say he's determined to get his shorts and shoes back on is a huge understatement.

    Hat's off to Darryl Beardall and I wish him every success in the upcoming race. His saga reminds me a bit of the late Herb Wright, of Salt Lake City, who also ran many miles each day well into his eighties. I admire anyone with the stamina (and good genes) to do that.
