Leland McPhie at 99 gets star treatment in San Diego County
Our M95 multi-event friend Leland McPhie (pronounced Mc-FEE) was the subject of four or five stories last month when he turned 99 just before indoor nationals. The County News Center focused on his being the oldest retired sheriff’s deputy. So did local TV. His local paper had photo of him on a front page. And a local columnist mentioned his interest in “senior track,” whatever that is. Leland holds many records, of course, and is a longtime member of the SoCal Track Club. He doesn’t compete that often, but he’s still in the game. Keep going, Leland! Belated happy birthday!
