Burning lungs

Remembering winter running in the East: I had never even heard if indoor track until I ran in college. We trained on a 200-meter banked, rubberized track which was actually pretty fast once you found your rhythm. You had to do 8 laps to equal a mile, which meant we did more laps than I care to remember. The only downside was they usually heat the buildings, so by the time you are done your have a horrible hacking cough and burning lungs. . . .
More on those crazy, hazy, oh, just plain cold days in the Northeast in this week's column, which will appear New Year's morning in the Monterey Herald.
