I Still Sorta, Kinda Have the T-Shirt

Our West Coast Friend and author of Cross Country 101, Dan Martinez sent us another great photo from "The Past" in honor of my observation that a big part of me still lives there.  It's the 1975 AAU Cross-Country Championships in Annapolis.  That's Greg Fredericks winning the race with a time of  28:57!

I actually had a t-shirt from the race because I subsequently went to the Blue Mountain Running Camp held by Navy Coach Al Cantello.  They must have had a boatload of extras that weren't sold, so us skinny runners were the beneficiaries. I loved that t-shirt and subsequently wore it out.  Luckily, my sister was able to stitch it together enough and it now resides in the middle of my 1970's T-Shirt Quilt she made for me.

    I found these and was amazed at the fast times and depth. You don't find that kind of depth today.

    I believe Stephen Flanagan (#8 finsher) is Shalene Flanagan's father.
