||Frannie and I were married in 1986 and the next year moved to Clinton, Mass., where we currently reside. We moved here from Hopkinton, Mass., where, I believe, I still hold the resident record for the Boston Marathon (2:14:50 in 1986). We moved to Clinton on the day of the Boston Marathon in 1987. I enjoy living here in our vast two-bedroom estate overlooking Coachlace Pond. (Coachlace is that frilly stuff on curtains once seen on trains and such; a mill which manufactured it was once found nearby). We are located near the Wachusett Reservoir, a great place for running. Other appealing aspects of the town include affordability and its resemblance to a miniature (13,000 vs. 100,000) Lowell: Old New England Mill Town, U.S.A.
I formerly worked in the athletic shoe industry before going back to school at the University Of Lowell in 1986 and coaching the women's teams there from 1986 to 1990. I applied for many coaching positions (over fifty) after graduation, with no success. I still apply for some
But enough about ME. My wife Frances works in the computer industry. She formerly competed (1984 picture) for the Greater Boston Track Club and has run a 37:00 10k and a 3:08 marathon. She was a swimmer/runner at Boston College.
Lillian came along in 1992 and is currently into Karate. She has competed in the Dartmouth Relays Grafton County one-lapper the last two years. She formerly participated in dance (ballet and tap) and has tremendous coordination - unlike her dad.
We're just a little family here in Clinton, and I think we're doing OK.
