11/23/96 AGN Turkey Tune Up 5K

My first 5K. That is 3.11 miles. This one is out on "Great Neck" the almost island in Ipswich. Small low key event. Fairly tough hilly course. I run well and have a fun time.

6/22/96 My Brother's Table Half Marathon

One year anniversary of my first race. I feel like I have progressed so much in the past year. I know that I can run faster that last year. I've done a few races and since I have been here before I know the routine and the course. I am fairly relaxed.

Mile 13.1 - No wall this time. Just solid running throughout. I get a little emotional as I cross the finish line and realize that I just ran this race 16 and half minutes faster than a year ago. I took off more than a minute per mile. Great feeling of accomplishment.

1:42:33 PR

5/17/96 Race Against Extinction 10K

Plum Island - home of the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. Newburyport MA. First came here for field trips during college. Still visit now and then to do some bird watching or walking on the beach. Mid week, evening 10K race. Nice T-shirts.

Super flat and straight out and back course. I count the runners ahead and behind me and know my finish position before the results are posted.
