Back in Business

I just unpacked the new computer, got through the preliminaries, and here I am.
There is much to catch up on, starting with good friend Charlie Kern breaking the USATF records for the mile (4:18.89) and 3,000 meters (8:37.94) for the 35-39 age group at the USATF Indoor Championships on March 21 and 22 in Landover, MD. Way to go, Charlie! Kern, who is a former coach of the York boys cross-country and track distance runners, is taking some time away from coaching to focus on family and records. He turns 40 in June. I'd say no masters record will be safe!

He is WITHOUT any Doubt a race horse and a stand up human being!! But the true test is if he can run as fast for as long as Mike Egle has (20 plus years?) I can think of no other runner that has run as fast for such a long period of time without "Breaking Down"...With the return of Bob Cisler this year as a Master..there should really be some great "times" to come in 2009 and beyond in the Masters division!! Blaze On!
