Hello, Me, circa 1984

me
Is that me, No. 1028, with my thick eyeglasses and mouth agape, during the Awesome 3000 race on June 2, 1984 at McCulloch Stadium in Salem, Oregon?

It’s quite remarkable to find a photograph of yourself featured prominently in your hometown paper.

It isn’t a recent one, thank God. This photo is from the microfilm archives. It dates to 1984, the second year of a youth running event called the Awesome 3000.

The more I look at it, the more I am convinced that it’s me. And is that my sister, Jennifer, standing by my side?
