Donald Eugene Heinicke Sr., a veteran runner and marathoner who had won a place on the 1940 Olympic team and later founded the Howard County Striders Club, died Wednesday of Alzheimer's disease at Catonsville Commons nursing home. He was 93. Mr. Heinicke, who was once described as "the Clark Gable of the curbstones" because of his strong chin and porcelain blue eyes, was born in Baltimore and raised on Braddish Avenue in the city's Walbrook neighborhood. Because he had suffered from tuberculosis as a youngster, Mr. Heinicke was told he couldn't take gym at Forest Park High School.
