I would like to take this time to thank Coach E.G. Plummer for all that he has done for the local running community, especially with the area high school running teams. We have been very fortunate to have a man who is willing to donate his time and energy to such a marvelous sport simply because he loves it. Since he worked the finish line in my first road race when I was in first grade, he has always supported my triumphs and failures alike.
Now I head off to another level of the sport, one where he has been. Thus, his advice and encouragement will remain as special and relevant as they always have. No matter the setting, I am, and will continue to be, proud to associate myself with a man who is blind to the school colors worn on the starting line.
He sees only runners.
