Kern Does It! He's World Masters Champ

Charlie Kern, 40, of Elmhurst, IL, accomplished a major goal today in Lahti, Finland, when he won the 1,500 final for the M40-44 age group at the World Masters Athletics Championships. Kern's time was 4:04.75 in what had to be a tactical race. Kern, who is well-known for his expertise in coaching in the Elmhurst area, has shown he can do what it takes, despite a sore hamstring, suffered two weeks ago at a 10-mile race near Chicago. Second place went to David Cowlishaw of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in 4:05:43, and third went to Matthias Luck of Germany in 4:08:14. The last two occasions at which I saw Charlie, he was directing the Run for Hunger 5K in Elmhurst on July 26 and sitting on a bench resting his hamstring while coaching the Elmhurst Running Club three days before he went to Finland. Charlie always has been a class act. Now, he's a world-class act. He'll be running an open 1,500 in another European meet later this week before he heads home. One more time. Go, Charlie, go!
