The Spring Lake 5 Running Strong For Over 40 years

 

by : Steve Tichenor

Another Spring Lake 5 in the books. The sun peeked out this morning and temperatures were in the mid 60’s making for ideal conditions for the 41st running today.  It wasn’t a great race for me. It seemed a few years back a 9 minute mile was a given. But the last couple of years I’ve been heading north of 10 minutes. It’s all good.

On Super Bowl Sunday Canadian Tennis star Genie Bouchard tweeted out that she “knew Atlanta would win” after they took a 21-0 lead. Enter John Goehrke who tweeted back “if Patriots win we go on a date” We all saw the improbable comeback.

by: Steve Tichenor

Loved the Pork Roll versus Taylor Ham debate at the RAC Saturday.   Though I could have predicted the resounding Pork Roll victory.  After all, very few ask for a Taylor ham, egg and cheese. It’s pork roll, egg and cheese.

By Steve Tichenor

We recently had Chris Carlin, the radio voice for Rutgers athletics, in the studio as a guest for our podcast. I was thrilled to meet Chris mainly because it felt like an old friend was stopping by. I can’t tell you how many times over the years I was hunched over a radio catching a Rutgers basketball or football game because there was no television coverage.
