#WA8UNS @WA8UNS #ThomasQuickKimball #ThomasKimball #ridgefieldct #Ridgefield @ridgefield in #FairfieldCounty #FairfieldCountyCT #CT #Connecticut Thomas Q Kimball of Ridgefield, Connecticut wanted to share that he is glad he was able to run in the Wolfpit Running Club 40th Annual Pamby Ridgefield Half Marathon, Sunday, October 2, 2016. As this would be the last time that two great Wolfpit Running Club members would co-direct this race Rick Favier and John Dugdale. My first Pamby Ridgefield Half Marathon dates back all the way to 1989. I did miss a few years in-between 1989-2016. This also would be my first half marathon since I had torn my achilles in 2013 in training for the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon. Finally after seeing a different doctor I had surgery on my right achilles July 2014. Since my surgery in which there is one or two permanent stitches. So since I couldn’t race 2013-2014-2015 I was still able to volunteer for the race. My first Marathon dates back to 1986. Marathon de Paris International Marathon de Paris 1986 with the Proselec Delacquis Demenagements ClamartFrance Running Club which I think was apart of Etudes et Productions Schlumberger 92140 Clamart France since my father Christopher Kimball was transferred  there with the family and I 1984 through 1986 from Schlumberger-Doll Research SDR Ridgefield, Connecticut. I have a handful of marathons and half marathon, bike races, triathlons, Ironman distance triathlons to Ultra-Marathons under my belt. I do not bike race and or do triathlons as I could not keep up with the ever raising cost of a race bike and or triathlon bike. As everything even the cost to race has gone up. A lot different then when I had used to do it mid 1980’s to about the mid 1990’s

My father had meet up with some of the runners of the Wolfpit Running Club when my father had taken a job with Schlumberger-Doll Research SDR Ridgefield, Connecticut back in 1979. 

We had moved to Paris, France as Schlumberger-Doll Research SDR Ridgefield, Connecticut had transferred  my father to Etudes ET Productions Schlumberger 26, Rue De La Cavee-B.P. 202 92140 Clamart, France during the time period of 1984 through 1986.
