Not Quite A Geezer Jock. Applaud Anyway.
Gary McKee, 53, ran a marathon every day of the year in 2022. That's about 9,600 miles.

The team name, Thrashers, suggests they don't know the first thing about a steady stroke in the water. On the contrary, the lead Thrasher, Brian Crane, makes his way nicely through the chilly waters of Lake Tahoe.

The kinds of people who run these scams should be made to settle across town from the retirees they fleece, wear a ball-and-chain, and work at an Amazon distribution center. Their paycheck goes to the retiree.
How about just make them stand in the bread line at the local charity with the people they fleeced? Then give them a free ride. To a cell. For 5 years, or until they figure out how to pay the money back.
Better, we should warn each other about these scams?
