It will be in Monday's newspapers everywhere, but New York City Marathon
director Fred Lebow died this morning of brain cancer at 62.
As it is for so many triathletes, my real roots lie in running and
marathons. I had the amazing good fortune over the years to get to know
Fred "up close". I saw him at various international marathons, and was
able to acccompany him in May 1993 back to his hometown of Arad, Romania,
which he left as a young boy during the war.
Fred was a global inspiration to so many! It's just so sad that he didn't
live long enough to see the 25th New York City Marathon (November 6).
He'll be missed ...
