25 years ago today – I ran the New Bedford half-marathon on this day along with 1800 of my closest friends. This was back in the day when NB had a large prize purse and attracted some of the top runners in the country. It was also the New England TAC championships (later to become USATF NE). I felt I had a decent race, passing through 10 miles in 49:35 and crossing the finish in 1:05:27, just a step under 5 minute pace. That was good enough for 18th place. I noted that it was 45 degrees and windy and that I was “wiped out” after the race. Brian Sherriff took the win in 1:02:25.
