RE: Any oldtimers remember the MVP Games? Dave Wottle Versus Jim Hershberger
He and I were about the same speed in cross country workouts when I was in high school and he was 40. I was a 10:30 two-miler at that time. He ran a 59:27 10 mile at age 43, which was a state age-group record at the time. I was mostly a pole vaulter in high school. He was at our practice one evening when I broke a pole. The school was out of track budget money, so without hesitation Jim gave me the money (which he had in his locker) to go buy a new one. Regardless of anything else, that was an act of generosity that I won't forget.
