Photo Gallery | Absolutely Alabama in photos: Wallace McRoy turns 98
With the Mercedes Marathon just a few weeks away, we felt it was only appropriate go to Wallace McRoy's 98th birthday party. Wallace was instrumental in starting the Birmingham Track Club and helping build the running community in this area.
The funny thing is, Wallace has never run a marathon. In fact the longest he's ever run was seven miles. For his birthday present this year he got a marathon finishers medal anyway. As Fred put it, after 98 years he's run quite a marathon.
