Ray Boytim's Story - Houston, Texas
Ray Boytim is a veteran runner with a CFI Therapy success story:
...
**Note that Ray was also written up in the Houston Chronicle on Jan 12, 1999 by Patti Muck: in an article entitled, "Marathon Masters": "....At twenty stripes (runs) a piece .....runners like Arlen Isham and Ray Boytim are at the rank of general when it comes to running the Houston Marathon. .... Besides being hard-core marathon veterans, they are among an elite group known as streakers - not the bare-skin kind but the kind who string together consecutive years of running the grueling race.

"I ran the Houston-Tenneco in January '79, and I was so elated to finish that marathon," Boytim said. "I felt I completed the Olympics. I get that same feeling every time I finish a marathon. When Boytim finishes his 21st Houston Marathon on Sunday, he will have completed his 135th marathon or ultra-run - distances longer than 26.2 miles - since his running career started at age 45. ...For Boytim, health was the primary marathon motivator. When he was 45, Spring resident Boytim, who has an engineering background, was an upper -level executive with Shell Oil Co. I weighed 186 pounds, and I smoked two packs of cigarettes a day," said Boytim, who weighs 142 now. After a work physical, the doctor called Boytim to his office. "He said, 'You know, at 45, I worry about guys like you,' "Boytim said he just flat scared me ." Boytim picked up James F. Fixx's The Complete Book of Running. "It was just the start of the running boom," Boytim said. "I was so inspired to try running. It just took hold. When he finished that first marathon, "almost immediately I started thinking of the next one," Boytim said. He has qualified for the Boston Marathon in April and working toward qualifying for the 2000 Boston race, a must-do on many runners' minds. Besides his running - 55 miles a week during peak training - Boytim eats a healthy diet with little red meat and lots of fruits and vegetables. He gets a massage once or twice a week and consults doctors for his hamstring problem, agreeing to anything as long as he can run. Two years ago, Boytim's wife and running partner, Sandy, 50, died after a fall in her home. They had been married five years and completed 42 marathons together. Boytim's 100th marathon was at Big Sur in 1994, and he and Sandy paused and snapped a roll of film along the way. "We were very close," he said. Boytim, a member of Bayou City Road Runners, runs 10 to 12 marathons a year and puts in about 2,000 miles annually with a current running log of 41,000 miles. He plans to run two marathons a month between now and May, when the weather heats up and he slows down slightly. Boytim's marathon personal record is 3:30. Last year, his best was 3.44, "which is pretty good for an old guy, he said."
Hellmuth Hinz's comment 1/22/99: "During the Houston Marathon, Ray did exceptionally well. He came in third place in his age group, leaving behind runners he said he previously had a hard time keeping up with, even a short time before. He also ran the Huntsville Marathon a couple of weeks before, where he came in first in his age group. In terms of CFI Therapy™ , I have moved Ray to the "tune-up" stage. His hamstring, calf, and achilles tendon, as well as hip and neck are in good order now. I forsee only good things in his endeavor to improve his running."
