Way back

30 years ago today: I covered 301 miles with 1 day off (despite arch woes all month long) during December of 1986.  This was the start of my final indoor track season at U-Lowell.  I only raced once during this month taking 2nd place in the 5,000 meters at Harvard on 12/13/86.  My goal was to qualify for D2 Indoor Nationals which I did with a 14:15.6.  Mile splits = 4:37, 4:39, 4:32 and a 27 for the final lap (short last lap since Harvard is one of the rare indoor tracks that is 220 yards instead of the more typical 200 meters).
