Loved Running That Fence Line

By: Michele Reese

I had to smile when I saw the shot posted of running next to the active commercial runway along the fence line at MCRDSD. I can’t say how many miles I put in running that very same fence as a young 2nd and 1st LT stationed there from 1973 to 1976. It was just five miles from base HQ building, out past the Naval base, back along the airport runway, through RTR and back up the breezeway to Sea School. I loved running then and still do, though now I spend more time on a bike than pounding the pavement. Thanks for the memories.
