Ten years ago in March 2004, I ran the More Marathon in New York City’s Central Park. I had chosen to participate since it was a unique race, in its inaugural year. I was also one of the winners in an essay competition, which had given me a free entry. The race was sponsored by More Magazine, a publication for women age 40 and older. Only women over 40 were allowed in the marathon, although there was also a half marathon which accepted younger entrants.

Kenah, as always, graciously replied, showing the enthusiasm and understanding of the big picture of our sport, that will make him an excellent new executive director of the Atlanta Track Club. Why the short version of the interview? We will reach out to Mr. Kenah down the road, once he is settled in Atlanta, and see how he sees the running community from Peachtree road.
