RE: Frank Meza 2:53:10 at LA Marathon (70 years old) unoffical time (just finished)
Hi Jim! My name is actually Rod. (roderick in my races) You actually were surpassed in the age graded category. Not that their is one. A 59 year old woman ran 43:23. High 80's. I started this thread and a previous one for 1 reason. I could not believe that (my role model) Frank Meza ran these times and got about zero coverage. I figured it was because he did'nt know you needed to call it in. (I learned that from Pete Magill) Or maybe he knew both Marathon courses where he broke the record were point to point. (thus ineligible for a world record) I knew there was 1 person who was convinced Frank was a cheater. There may actually be just 1 person, using multiple sign in names. But there is mainly the oddness of Franks split times and the real oddness to me (starting so far back, knowing what he was attempting to do. I figure he starts back sometimes because he brings slower runners with him, and/or wants to not fly off the start line and blow the race. I meant what I said to you. You are now one of the runners who are older than me, who will be my inspiration that I can still do better as I get older. (my age graded times improve each year, just by not slowing down) I know I will do Seal Beach every year. I"ll look for you at the start line each year hoping to wish you a great race.
