My husband and our autistic six-year-old, Tim, recently ran a 3K race and finished in 23 minutes. We were so proud of Tim, we even bought him a trophy from a secondhand store. He loves it. We plan to run more races with him. The story of the Hoyts just confirms to me that a disability is not an inability. There's always a way to the finish line.

Soon after the start of the 2002 Boston Marathon a man pushing another man in a wheelchair passed me. I was surprised and gave chase, but I never caught them. I told my family and friends about this amazing pair, but I never knew their names or the story. Now I feel honored about being passed and beaten by this dad and his son.

As an Iron Mountain ( Mich.) High classmate of Tom Izzo's and Steve Mariucci's, I always enjoy reading about them (Lean on Me, June 20). And you have to admit: They both are looking pretty darn good more than 30 years out of high school.

Rory Sabbatini may have "shattered golf etiquette" by putting out of turn (Players, June 20), but Ben Crane, whose slow play led to Sabbatini's actions, shatters golf etiquette every time he tees it up. The PGA needs to put the clock on only the slow player in a group. Everyone condemned Sabbatini, but nobody criticized Crane because he is a nice guy. That doesn't change his being a too-slow player.
