Since I met this group of merry athletic supporters, I have been touched with the focus and respect that have given to the sport, and the creative events that they have put together. They have survived changes in sponsorship, and they continue to give new generations of fine young American athletes chances to grow. They are part of the secret sauce that makes American athletics successful.The NSAF Hall of Fame is a long time coming, and I think it is awonderful edition to the American sports scene. If you can get to the event, do it! @runblogrun’s senior writer, Staten Island, Jeff Benjamin, will be there. I can not wait to see the stories!
