The Chief in 1989

This one is from the Pasadena Marathon, 1981 (or so) L to R: Bob Moses, Dorsch Sanders, Eddie Lujan, John Rous, John Chapman
I signed up for the 2012 Angeles Crest 100 Mile Endurance run and while scouting out information on the race, I found a video of the 1989 race that featured The Chief aka Eddie Lujan in it. You can see him at 3:48 in the video.

When I moved to Bakersfield in the late 70s, Eddie was one of the first adults I meet. He use to give me rides to baseball practice with his son Bobby. Later I found out he was a runner and when I started running he was an inspiration to me and still is.

Below are some photos of other great runners from back in the day.
L to R: Bryant Faddin, John Lopez, Bob Moses, Larry Arnt, John Rous, Paul White, Frank Fish
