last year i couldn't make the 2007 awards brunch because i was on a business trip to india. as it turned out, richie presented emmy and me with our grand prix awards in may, at the long island greenbelt trail 50k! this time around there was no business travel - but, we did stop in central park for the gridiron classic 4 miler before the awards brunch at the greater long island road runners club house in plainview.
