Ryun won the Big 8 mile that year in 4:08.5. If you
look closely at the photo you'll see my nostrils flaring
I reached the quarter in 60.5 not feeling at all lightfooted
as I had a week earlier when we ran Kansas in a dual
meet in Norman. I led the Big 8 race for 2 1/4 laps.
I was advancing to the rear of the pack by the 1320
mark (in 3:14) and took on a passenger in the last
to finish 14th out of 16.
