Salute to a Fellow Running Nut

Here’s a salute to my friend Dave Clark (no relation, so far as I know, to the Dave Clark Five). During the daylight hours, he is a mild-mannered lawyer, but, in his off hours, he is a running nut, stuck, as it seems, in a runner’s dilemma. His need: run a marathon in every state.

48 down, two to go. Only Hawaii and South Carolina to go, after checking off Alaska on his list. He finishes in February, and then, is certified by this elite collection of people: 50 States Marathon Club

No, I don't why.

Is that all? No! He also bought a Dick Pond running shoe store. Chicago-area runners know what a treat it is to shop there. They have everything (even pole vault shoes) a runner needs, plus serious runners as the shop-keeps. No different here.

So, valiant shoppers, head on over to the Dick Pond store in Carpentersville, IL.
