All hail James H. Klarich...

No, that isn't James in the photo. I actually have no idea who James H. Klarich is, how old he is, or what he does on a daily basis in this world, but I do know two things about him: he's from my hometown of Wapato, Washington (population of about 3000 hardy souls) and he was one of the finishers of the 2008 Boston Marathon. So to James I say, "You are so the man."

And to honor James, pick one of these fine races right here and get out there and run.

  1. James H. Klarich is my IB physics teacher at A.C. Davis High School. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had and a great man to say the least. He is also a marathon maniac.

  2. Wow, this post was so old, I had to go back and reread it to try to remember who James Klarich was!

    But I'm very glad to hear he's a great teacher and I'm glad to hear he's still running.

    And I'm glad to hear you're taking physics - keep studying! (sorry, that's the dad in me coming out)
