NEW YORK ROAD RUNNERS CLUB (RUNNING DOWN THE MEMORY LANE)

Hey Qap, look what I found - letters from New York Road Runners Club and New York City Marathon.  The above was a summary of race performance when I ran in the L'Eggs 10K Mini Marathon in 1988.  My PR was 1:04:33.  I still have the shirts from the three marathons but will need alterations from all three shirts to make one big XXL size to fit my current chubby body!   
Above is a letter dated November 17, 1986 from New York City Marathon thanking me for helping with organizing and providing communication to International runners during the Marathon.  I was able to enlist about 20 foreign college students from International Exchange Program to help with this task.
I think I only helped with the Pasta Party in 1988.  It took place at Tavern on the Green, well not inside, a big tent was put up outside of the restaurant.  I don't remember much from this event.  I don't even remember if I ate any pasta that day.  Maybe I was not even there.  Maybe someone else did all the work and the letter was sent to me by mistake!

Nice memento, that letter from the late Fred Lebow. How about getting back into running and try to beat your younger self?

Thanks for the kind suggestion, Qap. Though it is not impossible but will take lot of motivation. Will try - one step at a time and keep moving.
