Clint Santoro returned from Boston this weekend with a silver medal in his pocket.

Normally when someone mentions “Boston” and “running” in the same sentence, people are inclined to think of the Boston Marathon, which is coming up soon. The event in question here was the USATF Masters Indoor Track National Championship, at the Reggie Lewis Center in the Boston area.

The seasoned 38-year-old first tackled the Men’s 35-39 3,000 meters. His searing 15-lap effort around the 200-meter indoor track on Friday night earned him runner-up only to Rick Cahoon of Michigan. Santoro finished in 9:43, a personal best for himself in his age bracket, at an average of 5 minutes, 12 seconds per mile.

Day 2 of competition saw him run a the mile in 4:55 for fourth place overall, just a second shy of bronze. Kansas runner Randy Wasinger blazed the field for the gold medal.
