Doward finds fun in his run

Tyrone Doward is one happy fella as he runs Thursday through the Columbus Avenue underpass. Doward put on a 20-pound weight vest at Jackson Street Pier before beginning his stretching and running routine run down Columbus Avenue, all with a big smile on his face.

You have to look twice at the vest and how he is dressed.  It gives the appearance he has bombs strapped to him.

Inspiring and motivational.

 Slow Day Register?

I see him running all the time & he always looks like he's having fun. I usally give him a wave as I drive by.

Only DARHORSE would think the worst of this story. She must be wearing her Tin Foil Hat.

I have seen Tyrone running.  My first thought was he was in training for something.  Running is for personal fitness.  Wearing a weight vest means you are in training for something.  It appears he is wearing Gold's Gym gear.  Too bad the Register Staff was absent in trying to research his story.  Whatever it is, keep going Tyrone.  If you see a white Toyota 4WD pickup truck and you hear a honk, it will be me in support of your endeavor.  Be careful when there is snow and ice on the sidewalks and watch out for all those two-bit thugs.

Great job, Tyrone.

 One tough, dedicated dude.  My hat is off to him.  I run, but, look for the flattest course possible and the thought of a 20 lb vest in the equation confirms how woefully inadequate I am.  How old is Mr. Doward?  My knees and ankles bark at me as it is.

 Tyrone is a wonderful person who works hard, loves everyone and has always been a runner since I met him in Dallas. At 46 years old, he is fit and as happy as he can be. It's a refreshing story to talk of something positive. Not all news is bad or sad.

Thanks Sandusky Register for selecting my friend to do your story on.

Looks like a tactical  vest to me.

Wonder if I'd get the same publicity if I threw a tac vest on and went running through the streets of Sandusky?

A+ for his spirit though.

looking around

Is this the same dude that can be seen in the summer running backwards and forward along cleveland near the Sandusky airport?

Ive seen him many many times either on the street downtown or walking in the mall. Hes always been very friendly. This story is definitely whats needed more often instead of all the random out of town garbage.

GO SOMEWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!

I have seen this man for the last couple years and always on Columbus Ave. Cudo's to him for wanting to keep himself in shape....I wish I had his determination!!!

Keep smiling Tyrone.....You are a WONDERFUL person!!

I give this guy lots of credit for his dedication --- and especially for doing it all with a big smile on his face. Running also must be good for him because he certainly doesn't look like he's 46 years old!

The Agenda

 We as Americans, sit in front of our TVs, ride in cars, sit in front of our computers, and then those of us with jobs that arn't just sitting at home can't wait to get home from work and relax.  And to top it off most of us think shopping is hard work and excerise!  Doward should be an inspiration to us all.

Gotta give this guy a high five for his determination..........................When anyone sees me running, they always look behind me to see who's chasing me.
