Darrell General runs Chicago

Most of you might not know of Darrell General, but when I cam to DC he was the best runner around. He has won the Army 10miler 3 times and marine corps marathon twice.

There was a great piece in the Washington Times about his attempt this weekend at Chicago, at qualifying for a 6th olympic trials. He is in his early 40s and this is not an easy thing to do.

He is a true running WARRIOR, as I like to put it. He juggles a bunch of jobs, has a family, wears knee pads, runs in the middle of the night and all for the love of running.

talk about grit and determination_______Good luck all and run well

He is tough as nails. General is the definition of a "citizen runner"...someone who fits running in whenever they can.
