Running Races


This is a log of races I have been in over the years. . I went back through my archives to find as much info as I could. There are a lot missing. Racing started for me around 1970. For sure there was one additional marathon in 1981. It was my first Marine Corps Marathon and my time was 3:48. I don’t recall my place but I believe it was around high 3,000’s out of 8,000+. It is a very interesting course. The race times aren’t always something I want to put in the public domain. Some companies are beginning to specialize in reporting race results on the Web but I just did this in a Domino table. There are many interesting things about running on the Web. One of my newest technology acquisitions is the Polar Accurex Plus Heart Rate Monitor.
