At 86, New Orleans runner Albert Briede will participate in his 50th N.O.A.C. Turkey Day Race

Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, gasoline was 25 cents a gallon, Mattel's Barbie was born, and Alaska became the 49th state in 1958, the year Albert E. Briede ran his first Turkey Day Race. At 86, Briede will participate in his 50th race next week.

He was a runner long before running was cool.

One of the founding members of the New Orleans Road Runners (now the New Orleans Track Club), Briede ran before there were, well, running shoes. He began racking up his miles in white canvas high-top sneakers.
