INSPIRATION ON THE RUN—Pete Petersons, shown at right with his wife, Joyce, gave a presentation May 31 at the Agoura Hills Recreation Center in honor of May as Older Americans Month. Petersons spoke about growing up in Latvia, an idyllic life until 1940 when the country was invaded by successions of Soviet and Nazi troops. After fleeing to Germany and living in refugee camps for five years, Petersons and his family moved to America. His talent as a runner earned a scholarship to USC, where he entered the world of track andfield. Among many of his endeavors, he wrote a book, “Run For Fun,” and was a coachmanager for the Nike European touring teams. He also helped develop a Saudi Olympic track andfield program.
