November 1981

30 Years ago
I ended my final season of high school cross-country (XC) with three state meets over consecutive weekends at Franklin Park.  I finished second at the State Coaches meet running the 3 mile course in 15:08.  The following week I won the state class meet with splits of 4:36/9:50/15:02 finishing 8 seconds ahead of Sean Coughlin.  My final XC race of the season was the State Championships where conditions were “cold and very slippery”.  I took a disappointing third place in 15:16 behind Gorman (14:56) and Steve Perkins (15:16).
