I learned within the last hour that an old friend of mine, True Cousins, passed away today. True and I were charter members of the Seven Hills Running Club founded in 1985. He was 82, so for many years we competed in the same age group. I always remember him beating me in races. Then, I started edging him out. That is when he told me that he was having transmission problems with his pacemaker. It was stuck in a low gear. He was one of the nicest guys you would ever meet. We also shared a love for old VW's and he helped me keep my going for years. He was a consistent runner until the last year, but continued to walk. In fact, he was an engineer and never retired until today. I will miss him.
I went to the park this afternoon and ran 2.5 miles on the trails.
