What a rare Fall day it was as John Domico, Tom Cali, Jim Moore, Ken Davis, Marty Klanchar, George Lesieutre, Lance Bland, Greg Dillon, Matt Soccio, Sherry Tirko, John Sheakoski, Brett Michaud, seldomers Jay Lynch and Vicki Summers, Cheryl Capone, Dana Todd, Ruth Mick, John Wilcock, Jamie Volkert, Mark Lee, Joe Bollinger, and Marty Mazur headed for the track.
Bwana coined a new word today: "seldomers". They're people who show up to track once in a Blue Moon, but who are always welcome for their special gifts. Vicki Summers is always a treat, so full of unnecessarily self-deprecating humor. And Jay Lynch can always be counted on to give it his best. Even if it's been a few months since his last appearance (it hasn't been this time), he wheezes through the prescribed workout. Bwana gave an easy workout: 2X1 Mile Indians. Easy, that is, if you get in the right group. Vicki had to drop out for a lap and a half on the first one, but came back with a vengeance on the second, setting a pretty good pace. Speaking of seldom seen, Ruth Mick made the scene with the slow group today, and even slowed *us* down!
Another seldom seen sight: Jamie's brother buzzed the crew in his sparkling Presidential Helicopter today. Jamie swears his brother wasn't transporting anyone important, but then again, why would Jamie's brother tell *him* if he was? My guess is he was using his infra-red seeker to scope out Dave Eggler, Marv Hall, Bob Cornwall, Lee Culver, John Pringle, Greg Luna, and some other seldom seens. I doubt if IR would have helped. I think some of these people have assumed room temperature.
