Eric Blake: Mt. Washington Race

Post by Deltaguy1 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 1:09 pm

CCSU track & field and cross country coach came in third in the annual Mt. Washington road race. Congrats to Eric.
Next year, all of us on this blog need to enter the race to support Eric and learn about the emergency treatment in New Hampshire. The latter is a joke.

Here's this year's news about the race. It's not so much about our Eric Blake, but about an article about the writer, Lori Riley. Eric is mentioned.

See it in the Courant: http://www.courant.com/sports/hc-sp-ril ... story.html

Several people in my running club ran it. Some of them had to power walk part of the way.

I'm willing to give it a try next year...maybe.

Because it's about a CCSU coach....no mention of Central until halfway through the article.
IF it was a UConn coach....headline: BLAKE TAKING UCONN TO NEW HEIGHTS

My thoughts exactly! When I started reading the article I kept asking myself, when is she going to mention Central Connecticut? finally it appeared late in the article as an afterthought, as if to say:
"Blake is the Track and CC coach for Central Conn State U but we won't hold that against him."
