10 Year Runner: Vince Lester
Racing Across Generations
After the inaugural race, I was hooked on running P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Rock ‘n’ Roll annually. My nine years running include three full marathon and six half-marathon finishes. Every year is a fantastic experience and unique in its own way. However, my favorite was the 2012 race when I ran with my youngest son, who at age 17 competed in his first half-marathon and my Mom, who at age 66 walked her way to the half-marathon finish line. Three generations completing the half-marathon distance in the same race is an uncommon event and an experience I will cherish forever.

Wow! Most families have a difficult time getting three generations to converse at the dinner table, let alone getting three generations to finish a half marathon together. Congrats to the whole family!
