Hayes Medal in Hands of American Running Royalty

I took the Johnny Hayes medal up to New York City to show it to Camille Herron. While you probably don't know her, she just finished ninth in the Pan-Am Games Marathon. She's running New York tomorrow and will be running the Olympic Trials at Houston in January.

Here's Camille with the 1908 Olympic Marathon gold medal. Of course, some of you may say, "She's not running royalty yet." Perhaps your right, sooo....

What about Desiree Davila? She took second at Boston this year, posting a 2:22:38. I'm pretty sure that classes as running royalty.

Ms. Davila was making an appearance at Paragon Sports when I managed to meet up with her. Still not good enough for you?

What about Ryan Hall?
I believe Hall has run the fastest marathon by an American with his fourth place finish at Boston this year, posting a 2:04:58. I think that may well make him the king of American Marathoners, at least for now.

very cool- I'm sure "Johnny" enjoyed meeting all those young runners. Thank you for letting them share on our treasure
