as "Kemibe" - it is fair to say the idea for the site might not have
occurred to me without his input. Old Greater Boston Track Club teammate and friend Gary
Wallace maintains the site and is the perfect person for the job. Many thanks to you

But each man and each woman of you I lead upon a knoll,
My left hand hooking you round the waist,
My right hand pointing to landscapes of continents and the public road.
Not I, not any one else can travel that road for you,
You must travel it for yourself.
