Looking back as December long gone by…
30 Years ago
I started my final indoor track season at Billerica High with two races and the anchor leg in a relay. I started the season with a 1st place in the mile in a meet against Haverhill high (we lost 36-50). I ran 4:32 with splits of 65/68/71/68. A week later we were back at the Methuen field house for the Methuen Invitational where I won the mile in 4:28.2 which at the time was a meet and field house record. I finished the day anchoring our mile relay team running 58 seconds for my leg as we took 6th place in 3:53.1
|From my High School traing log. Wow! Lots of fast running!|

I ran just one race in December of 1986 taking 2nd place at the Harvard invitational. I ran the 5,000 meters in 14:15.6 and noted in my training log that I “Felt Great (for 2 miles)!”. Splits of: 4:37, 4:39, 4:32 and :27.
