enjoyed coaching track and field. He assisted in the development of a school
track team that was undefeated in dual meets for four straight
years. He helped win two New York City track
championships back to back with two different schools.
70 schools qualified to compete in the
city championship meet
at Randall's Island.)
Cybrary Man then served as his school district's Track
Commissioner. He developed a very successful track program for
the five middle schools that that produced many outstanding runners.
He is very proud that the program included Special Education
students who performed well and he is glad that quite a few boys and girls
went on to get college
track scholarships as a result of their being in the program.
Our school district won three NYC Track Championships in four years.

suggests running The Falmouth Road Race
one of the most beautiful races in America!
Falmouth Road Race
The Falmouth Road Race is one of the
top-rated events on the international circuit and annually attracts
a world-class field, racing seven scenic miles from Woods Hole to
Falmouth Heights. In all, almost 10,000 recreational runners mix
with the world’s best, with an estimated 50,000 fans lining the
course, making this one of the top sporting attractions in New
England and a centerpiece of summer on Cape Cod.
About the Falmouth Road Race: The Falmouth Road Race was founded
in 1973 and has been named the "Best USA Road Race" by Runner’s
World magazine. It has also been featured in Life Magazine and
Sports Illustrated, as well as on CBS television and ESPN. Last July
it was named in Sports Illustrated "One of the 25 essential things
to do in the summer." It was the only road race listed. Proceeds
from the race benefit Falmouth school programs and youth
organizations. The race annually receives more than 25,000 requests
for entry forms and fills its field of 10,000 in less than a week.

Marathons. Wish they had triathlons in my running years as I
loved swimming & biking then too. Now, I am content to work out on the
