Pic is offline (missed this thread a few days ago due to reasons), but which track did you race at? Hellyer? I thought I remembered you're in Northern California.
I raced and trained several times a week for a while at Encino, and less at the old Dominguez Hills track--former Olympics track. This was back in the early 90s.
I had a brief re-entry at the new indoor wood track in Carson, which is simply god. 250 meters, high angles, wood, as it should be.
Still have my Basso. In the garage. Will never sell it. Just in case.
