2010 begins with PF Chang's Rock & Roll Marathon

The Friday before the Rock & Roll Marathon the wonderful race expo takes place at the Phoenix Civic Plaza. So nice to visit with old friends like Hook & Lake Fox 10 News Anchors. John being a big part of our 2006 Emmy for "the gift of life and then some."


Wandering around the race expo a quick stop at the Oakley booth and visit with Legend Greg Welch. Melbournes multiple World Triathlon Champ and one of the fittest Athletes ever. Now living with a pace maker.


One of the Expo Symposiums had quite a crew of World Greats.
Matt Reed, Dean Karnazes, Deana Kastor and Ryan Hall as they spoke about training, their upcoming seasons, etc.


Sunday morning January 17, 2010 at the VIP Pre Race breakfast Bill with Dean Karnazes Mr Ultra Distance Runner and Bill's job to escort Dean for the day. At 6:30 AM the 8 K to precede the 7:40 AM race start of the Marathon for a 50 K Total for Dean and 150 others in their Ultra Marathon that day. The Marathon and half had an entry of over 32,000 for the largest Marathon in the World.


Bill, (Captain Team USA Cycling for the 2007 Thailand & 2009 Australia WTG Games) recently at Landis Cyclery checking out a new 2010 Trek Madonne for the upcoming season. Dave Kuhlman and Perry are the best keeping Bill on the road throughout the year with the best of Trek and Zipps.
