A Runner, Teacher, Brother, Regular Cat and a Great Friend:<)

And as usual, Ole Papa Clyde likes to wait until the end to give em' more space in his weekly running column...So Super Duper Congratulations to Amy Korn of The Republic of Cambridge..Amy slugged it out tonight whupping pal Lauren Blanda and beating her by a nano second and both overcoming a tough as nails and a bottle of Wild Turkey--Michelle McAndrew....what's a nano second you ask..I don't know you'll have to speak to Brendan McWilliams..he is the Scholar and Teacher down at the VFW James Logan Post?????

Well it's the end of another "Thursday Night" year in Somerville, Massachusetts...and it's been a great one as usual..ole Papa Clyde still fondly remembers the days when it was just he, Manny Arruda & Phil Keeley running the mean streets of Somerville all the way back in 1995 when it all began..yup 1995 and still going strong..who'd a thunk!!! Not many way back then:<)
