Jeff Falberg's 1996 Race Results

1996 was a turnaround year in my running career. Having been disappointed with my slower times from recent previous years and how I looked in the mirror, I made a determined effort that I was going to lose weight by following a diet and performing abdominal crunches on a regular basis. The original incentive was to get in shape in time for my sister's wedding in San Diego, CA.

What resulted in 1996 was an almost 40-pound weight loss, a great race in the Fairfield Half-Marathon, a couple of top ten finishes in the Westport Summer Series, a memorable AFC Half-Marathon performance in San Diego, CA, and a first place overall win in a one-mile race in Bridgeport, CT with my fastest one-mile time of 4:57. This had spawned a new level of enthusiasm in my running that had been missing for what seemed like ages. 1996 was also the year I purchased a Pentium computer and chose America Online (disappointed at first with the frequent busy signals) as my internet service provider.
