The sky was bluer than blue, and real Spring was in the air as a stripped down crew of Bob Jones, John Domico, Tom Cali, Jim Moore, Marty Klanchar, Tom Hilands, John Sheakoski, Mark Fedkin, Costas Maranas, George Lesieutre, Beth Herndon, Meira Minard, Paul Ruby, Mark Traband, and Marty Mazur headed for the track.
It was quite a light turnout, about half of last week's. Bwana figures that the Boston crew is finally *really* tapering, and quite a few people will be running the Herbstritt 5K this evening. Bwana gave out a light workout, but Meira, in hot athletic contention (or was it Athletic-Hot?) for the NVRC Race Series Cup, begged him for more!
No demerits today. Even people who are neither running Boston nor tonight's 5K had some kind of good excuse. Ken Davis is having a hard recovery from a pulled calf muscle. And Esther Prins is having an even harder recovery from something a bit more strenuous. She showed up today outside Rec Hall with her darling daughter Lily, now 5 months old. Esther has been getting back to running and hopes to join us this Summer, though she is having a bit of a knee problem.
