    The discussion recently about the first WR to have been set with Nike shoes reminded me about this great runner who had, apparently, fallen upon hard times in his later life. Some tie ago, there was discussion about his desire to return home to Kenya, and Kip Keino was said to be helping with arrangements. Do any of you know whether Rono did, in fact, return to Kenya, and how things are going recently?

    Many thanks for that update, and I hope that life goes better for him in the future! I had attended medical school in Albuquerque, and went there for a class reunion while Rono was still working at ABQ. I had a long wait for my flight home and, had I known that he was working at the airport, I'd have made it a point to look him up and say hello!
