Detroit Lakes retiree, 80, participates in his third Fargo Marathon
At last Saturday's Fargo Marathon, more than 24,000 people crossed the finish line -- and Detroit Lakes' Richard Renner was among them.
Renner, who turned 80 in January, was competing in his third half marathon in Fargo -- but the first one since 2008.
After taking a few years off due to illness, poor weather conditions and other factors, Renner said, "I decided, it's now or never."
Renner completed the 13.1-mile course in 3 hours, 24 minutes on Saturday.
