Way before I sucked at running, I sucked at throwing

And back in 1974, I won my first JV shot put competition with a throw of 33 feet, 10 inches (12 pound shot); but I never got to 40 feet. The better varsity throwers were throwing 55-60 feet (in local meets). 😦

I had no speed across the ring.

But this brings back memories.

And, even as a failed shot putter, I could run a 5:58 mile.
