No Scott, and I meant nothing personal by it. I am sure you know what the guy did and have the inside skinny with your connections, aka privlegde to the good stuff. You're a good guy and one heck of a finish line announcer which is not an easy thing to do. I am sure the Eastern Michigan lad appreciated hearing you bring him home during the last few hundred yards of the Freep this year.
Your wife and I actually ran side by side for many miles during the 1984 Freep Marathon. Who prevailed in front of who at the end, I won't say but her 2:42-43(?) marathon was nothing to sneeze at on a fairly warm day. That Sunday evening the Tigers won the World Series over the Padres. But in keeping on topic here, I will say that I was very, very young and I nor Karen recall seeing Kip there:). Just sayin':)
No harm, no foul. Yes, I know plenty about Kip, thanks to multiple sources. Fact is, I know enough. I said he's in hot water. Go w/that.
Thank you for the kind words about my 'work' at finish lines. I try not to say anything dumb and to enunciate clearly. The EMU lad, Jordan Desilets, is currently running well and hoping to have a good year.
Per Karen in '84, her time was 2:43:00. She could run a little. She runs for fitness now & still works for UMich.
