Coach Dob Johnson, University track coach and director of
the UK Relays, called the field
"fantastic." Not the least of the
"fantastic" performers was Al
Carius, who had the dubious
chore of plodding through cold
water-fillepools and leaping
over various obstacles.

in 40 degree weather? If you're Al Carius you set the season's
top time in that event. Carius, who has run in this event only
