The Official Don Lash Website

Back before there were synthetic running tracks, technical running clothes, specialized running shoes and heart rate monitors; there were runners who set records without those aids and crutches. Don Lash lived during that time period. He loved racing and gave the credit for his talent to God.

"Records are made to be broken."

“The older I become, the more I am convinced that true happiness comes from helping others.”

(Upon presenting the 1988 James E. Sullivan Award to Florence Griffith-Joyner) "Every time God has granted me a privilege, he has extracted a responsibility from me. You have a responsibility to our people and our Country."

“I want to keep going until I hear my Heavenly Father say, ‘Well done, My good and faithful servant!’”

“I personally feel the Legislature should be made up of people who have had a great deal of experience and success in life. It should not be made up of those with little or no experience in the business world or those who have failed at everything else.  If some legislators cannot even run their own business, how can they expect to run the affairs of our State?”

“Athletics gave me the confidence to undertake accomplishments that seemed impossible to others. I did not do these deeds alone; God helped me all through my life and it is to Him that I give credit.”
