First day of 'training' in Duluth (at gym across the street from Old Duluth Central HS). Banked track. Some sort of slick covered fiberboard. Above basketball court and I believe it was 30 laps to the mile. Ran in black low top Converse style Chuck Taylors...don't remember if brand name or knock off shoes.

Forgot another anniversary. Reported into the dorm at OU Jan 15, 1978.

1971 Began training/1003 miles summer (same as Koski)
1978 super summer of training capped off by Duluth trip including 1st Hogshead 2nd in 50:02 (why couldn't I have broken 50!!!)
1984 met Chrissy Jan 28 two days after her 20th birthday
1997 James was born June 23rd.
My brother Dirk had cancer and chemo. My Grandpa Oran Bush died 3 days before James was born and his funeral went on during labor...so my mom buried her dad and gained a grandson within an hour or so of each other.
