Hal Koerner addresses the 2009 USA Trail Marathon National Championships starting field at the Lithia Loop Trail Marathon. Guess which runner is Todd? “Todd didn’t care about appearances. He’d run a race in front or in the back. He was just an inspiration,” says Joe Griffin. A year after this photo was taken Todd would share, “Just ran Lithia Loop Trail Marathon. The ‘Sick and Gimpy’ 2010 version of myself was 10 minutes faster than the ‘Fat Author’ 2009 version. I was so happy that my injuries didn’t get the best of me. Awesome! I also blew out about a gallon of snot along the way. I hope that helped me to burn through my cold.” Photo by Karolina Wyszynska Lavagnino
