Who would you most like to meet: Although he is now deceased, i would have loved to meet Louie Zamperini. The great Torrance Tornado himself. He had such an eventful life and was such an incredible runner. I would love to hear about his olympic experience.

Favorite quote: We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and we cannot help ourselves... The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving of freedom. No one can say, "You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that. The human spirit is indomitable". - Sir Roger Banister (first man to run a sub 4:00 mile)
Famous relatives: Clint Barmes - MLB Shortstop
