Long runs give me many memories. It was over 45 years ago that David Hughes befriended me on a solitary uphill run at Lexington Dam. I had just moved from Saint Louis, and a school I loved (DeSmet) to San Jose, a big city, and school (Bellarmine), where I was an outsider. David took me aside, got me to loosen up, laugh and screw around. David and I see each other occassionallly now, and that knowledge of all the miles, all the workouts, are now muscle memory.
Make memories. Enjoy your runs.
