RIP Ed Whitlock
“I never met him, never watched him run a race. But he was an inspiration to me, and I’m sure to many older runners here. Some people show you where the ceiling is. Some people raise the ceiling. A few rare souls gently take you up through the ceiling and show you the stars.”
“Ed’s lesson was that night-sky lesson. It’s up to you how you live your life. You can make your own rules, live with gentleness, kindness, and honor, and help your fellow strivers. Or not. Thanks, Ed.”
