The Coolest Number Ever

So, here it is: 25864. That's me. That's so me.

It's my bib number. It's also the zip code for Layland, West Virginia, Population: 518.

Last year, this kick ass number was proudly worn by Thomas Cleaver, who was 57 years old. That would make him 58 now, assuming his heart held out.

No, it doesn't hurt my feelings that there is no chance on earth that I will beat or even approach the time of my distinguished predecessor. Hey, we're all on the same team here. Plus, I picture him as a crazy fitness guy who has exercise machines in his house and weighs all of his food.
