1993 Grand Prix
I won my 7th consecutive USATF New England Grand Prix title in 1993.  I only ran 5 of the 7 races but took three firsts and two seconds to collect 48 points.  Lisa Senatore (GLRR) was the women’s champion winning four races and placing second in one (49 points).  Larry Olsen won all six of the races he competed in taking the masters title with 60 points.  Only 14 runners completed all seven of the races to earn a commemorative sweatshirt.  CMS topped the team category with 52 points to Boston Running Club’s 36 points.
