Road race tomorrow
As tomorrow’s Concord 5-miler road race looms, it is high time to publicly express long-overdue thanks to the folks responsible for that event’s amazing longevity and popularity.
Race director Bob Teschek, Girl Friday Barbara Higgins, together with sponsor Tom Raffio of Delta Dental, top the list and have my everlasting gratitude and admiration. To the runners, especially the regulars, those who show up year after year, and the alums of Concord High School, men and women I had the pleasure of coaching during their high school years, thanks for the treat you provide me with every (hot) third Saturday in July.
Load up the carbs, get to bed early tonight and have fun!
