Happen to find this in my desk today and made me remember a wonderful man.
Here is an excerpt from the newspaper.
Thirteen runners have competed in every race and will be in Saturday’s 25th edition.
Peter Crellin, 60, of Tampa can lay claim to being the fastest of the 13, having completed the 15K in 54 minutes, 1 second in 1985. But his streak is not without speed bumps. In 1988, he was far from healthy after breaking his collarbone and shoulder blade in a bike accident one month before the race. In 1993, he put off an angioplasty to complete Gasparilla No.16.
