Thanks for sending me your website. I woke up at 3:30 this morning and have spent
the past two hours looking at it and reading the many comments. It is really
interesting. The photos from the 1960's bring back many memories for me.
Although the people were different the situations were much the same with
dirt indoor tracks, cinder outdoor tracks, make-do facilities all the way
around. The uniforms were usually Champion and the spikes heavy based on
today's standards. Your comments on interval training were great. It seems
as if you were a few distance runs away from some awesome races, yet a
4:09 was still quite an accomplishment. I enjoyed seeing Mihaly Igloi,
Joe Don Looney, Byron Berline and others of more national fame. We will
have a big UC reunion on April 22 in conjunction with the Southern Ohio
Cup. This would be quite a good idea to duplicate this type of
website for our people. I will not be doing it but someone can. I will use you
as a source if needed. The best alumni organ I have ever seen was a seasonal
put out by my next door neighbor when we lived in West Virginia, Col. Benjamin.
It was called the Alumni Record and he kept people up to date on everything present
Greenbrier Military School as well as the updates on alumni. He was uncanny in
his ability to connect people with pictures, quotes and quips. He died a long
time ago but I still have many of his magazines in the basement in the
archives of my humble museum.In any case your website is by far the best website
I have ever seen
and is able to accomplish the same purposes of the one I just talked about. Keep
to it. I personally enjoy your era but maybe you could get more recent eras as
well. Just a thought from a current coach.
I'll share this website with others.
