Warm up and Cool down time was when my team came together. Sprinters, Jumpers and distance runners stretched the longest. We also had the most stories and it was when we gave each other trouble. Mike Young was our team captain at Bellarmine. He was about 5’3″ and was all muscle. I told him that he had the ‘World’s greatest body.’ I also would tell him that he was getting taller each day. We had fun together. Mike and his Dad lifted together and that is how we learned about weight training. Mike was amazingly competitive. He was an 800m runner plus 4x400m and was just the toughest guy I had ever met. He would dig in and not let anyone by him.
Remember your friends.
