Did you Know?

In case anyone is interested, the first SERC member to participate in the Western States 100 was John Lehrer, who lived on Summit Street, two houses east of the intersection of North Main and Summit streets in Chagrin Falls. John ran the "100" in 1979 after he had moved to Mountain View, CA. He was most happy about making the under-24 hour cutoff for the silver buckle finisher’s award. He was an assistant editor to Runners World when it was a stand-alone publication run by its founder Bob Anderson.
