Looking back - March 2008


15 years ago: I was recovering from a strained calf muscle and only raced once during this month (at the very end).

Scott Clark long-time friend (back to his days at Keene State) put on the Gilmanton 5k.  This was the 10th annual running of the race.  This year the tough 4th kilometer would be even tougher as the dirt road was coated with 3” of snow.  The race started amidst a snow squall.  Kevin Tilton won as 7 of the top 10 finishers were CMS runners.  I had a good battle with Scott, but he buried me on the climb and gapped me by 10 seconds at the finish.
