Brush With Glory
I read this last Friday and ran the Freedom Run 5k on Saturday. Half way into the race, this guy and his flag comes up behind me. As he passes, I call out "Way to go Aaron!" - don't know how I remembered his name, but I did.
He turned to look, smiled, and said "Thanks". Short pause. "How did you know my name?". I replied "You're famous" and left it at that. He pulled away, feeling even better about what he was doing, I hope. I applaud his efforts. He should be famous. Hell, he's on this blog, isn't he?
