Loads of local color and running history on the Charles River tonight...the legendary weekly race "Fresh Pond" founder Ben Fudge's son Dave Fudge was in attendance along with the caretaker for the past 12+ years..Fresh Pond race director Phil Keeley ....both toeing the line at an even more impressive piece of real estate in local running lore..the American Legion Marsh Post which hosted the famous "Cambridge 12 Miler from 1950-1978...be on the look out for a to be announced "special night" at the Marsh Post in memory of many of the great races held there as well as a memorial to Fred Brown of the North Medford Club who hosted many of the handicap races there ...
Now I got to mention some of the young folk like Matt Corcoran who has been in Witness Protection Program preparing for his big dual with Ken Yanowski of Houston, Texas on June 8th at the Big Man Run VII "The Gauntlet" .....appropriatly named "D-Day on the Dunes" !!! in Wellfleet, Massachusetts
Matt popped off a 33 flat for 5.2 miles, however he is gonna have to run much faster than that if he is not gonna let happen to him, that which happened to Vinnie Kotowski in 1999...and thats be dethroned of his Big Man Run title!! Guess who dethroned Vinnie in 1999??....what goes around comes around:>)
