It was an incomparably beautiful last day of Winter, mild, sunny, and breezy, and an inexplicably light turnout for such a nice day. Tom Cali, John Domico, Lance Bland, Marty Klanchar, Bob Cornwall, Greg Dillon, Nick Downs, Tom Hilands, Frank Zaffino, Greg Luna, Ron Cunfer, Jessica Charles, John Wilcock, Dana Todd, and Marty Mazur were all that came to the track. Could the light turnout have been due to the start of March Madness? To the fact that Bwana hinted he might not be at the track today? To the fact that Lent, the season of repentance, hasn't kicked in yet for some of the more prodigal in Bwana's fold?
Some of the Penn State track team was gearing up for the Spring season, so Bwana sent his crew to the outer lane to do NX800. The not-too-stiff breeze on the back stretch made the workout not-so-tough.
John Sheakoski, "Bwana" of the sports pools at ARL, was enjoying a few beers watching the first few March Madness games. Sherry Tirko, who usually wins most of the money, was pre-spending her winnings at the same bar. Bwana assumes that everyone else who was missing today was drinking to Bwana's health on his birthday.
