Joe McDaniel's wife Jeannie inducted Wall of Fame

I got an email from Joe McDaniel telling me Jennie was inducted into the 2015 Oklahoma Long Distance Running Wall of Fame. Both Joe and Jeannie are long distance runners; however, Joe is good but Jeannie truly excels at this sport. I have the email below:

JR, thanx for sharing this with us. Anybody who knows anything about long-distance running will be very impressed with Jeannie McDaniel's accomplishments.
To name one that you don't have to be a stopwatch geek to understand, she ran an incredible 101 miles and change in 24 hours at age 60 !!!
Not to mention those Pikes Peak Races...!!! In Checkers terms she is up there with Newell Banks' Marathon Exhibition Games in Endurance!
