That would be me, of course. And there’s only one guy around that can lead me, an otherwise even-keel person, to stand in the cold to cheer him on while wearing a t-shirt I made to show my unconditional support:
Runner #22041, my favorite guy, paced a friend all the way through her first marathon. He stopped when she needed to stretch and walked when she couldn’t run any more. Though he’s trained to run a marathon in 3.5 hours, he hung in there with her for 5+ hours to see her across the finish line.
What an amazing man!
