So far so good. Ten milers are enough for now. I got up to 13 miles but I was going too slow...I'm going too slow now...I need to be below 11 min pace and hopefully I can crack the ten minute barrier for ten mile workouts again.

Read up on Hardcore again yesterday. Impressive as a senior and was well above average younger runner too.

Got it and replied back. Thanks. I wasn't sure who the 3rd guy to left in winter photo...I probably should know. What is weird all 3 photos draw a blank with me...usually I would remember each photo. I thought the post race photo was probably from a Hogshead race? There are references to a cars from 50's but I don't see in any photos and I see you sent this in 2014 and I replied and I don't remember the email and it was only 6 years later!!!! Maybe I'm a clone and the real Rick Bagwell was abducted by aliens and I'm just realizing I'm not really me!!!

Koski how in the world are we in our mid 60's?

What did you mean about the reference to neighbors driving into their cars and a class in literature? It seems to be about Colorado Springs and maybe there was a photo in the original email that did not come through this time? I just had a thought...sure enough I had saved that email and it had a photo of Colorado Springs from 1968 and it looked like 1950's. That town really grew...I haven't been back since I lived in Denver winter and spring of 1976 but I've heard how much more it grew north of where we lived towards the AF Academy.

Not sure what you're referencing.
But I've been through the Springs many times over the last decades and it's a madhouse. Hard to even drive through.

You'd have to look at the email. You said something about seeing people drive into their garages and not even getting out of their cars...and being a Duluthian...maybe they weren't doing that yet in Duluth? Not a big deal.

The part about driving through I understand. From time we moved there in 72 until my parents moved back to Altus in 75 the almost bare hillside across the street from our house filled in. In fact in the first year and half it was stunning how many houses near ours were built. At the time it was the fastest growing city in US and I think they were more than once. Natives were not thrilled with newbies...that turned me off but I understand why they would feel that way.

Yeah.. it struck me in 1973(?) how people like in your neighborhood just drove into there houses and you never saw them. We played catch with a football in your street in Dec. and it had snowed the day before. It was sunny and 70's or something the next day.

No 'real' snowplows...just dump trucks with blades put on the front. They let the snow melt. Oklahoma the same way although they've gotten better. They still cancel school the first snow almost no matter how little it is...to give the drivers time to 'adapt'...drive slower.

Sacramento was crazy...it would stop raining at the end of spring for 4 or 5 months. One year it sprinkled at our house in the middle of summer for like 15 seconds and that was the only rain...and that was normal. They depended on winter snow melt off way more than the rain...but they were in a perpetual 'drought'...actually the truth was there were too many people for the amount of water that was available...30 years ago.
