For a woman who has regularly declined reunion invitations, I noticed my eyelashes were receiving unusual attention from my mascara wand that particular morning. For a woman who has cavalierly tossed high school and college reunion notices in the trash for two decades, I had to admit I was on the giddy side of nervous.Twenty-five years have gone by, I think, as I look hard at myself in the bathroom mirror of my parents' house, hundreds of miles from Baltimore. Finding the light switch here is not the effortless move it once was in the dark, and I keep forgetting whether the medicine cabinet opens from the left or the right -- reminders of how long it's been.

Every Saturday morning at 7:45, Vicki McComas hustles from her Fells Point rowhouse down through her storefront and out the door with map in hand. A brown metallic Mercury Pacer pulls up, and Susan Milukas, her blonde hair still disheveled from the bed pillow, honks. Neither woman has had coffee yet when Vicki squeezes into the passenger seat and Susan drives off, their adrenalin pumping at the thought of what they might find. They were in their early 30s when this Saturday routine began 16 years ago. Vicki, a potter, had just opened her Aliceanna Street junk shop, Saratoga Trunk, and when her husband balked at taking her shopping, Susan volunteered.

Phil and Vicki Lang, the new cross country coaches at Oakland Mills, are a combination made in heaven. They would have to be if they hope to replace a legendary coach like Steve Carnahan, who hand-picked them as his replacement.All Carnahan did was lead the boys team to eight state titles, 12 regional titles and seven county titles in 16 seasons. But he was more than just a coach. He was a caring mentor who changed people's lives.Phil Lang was one of those people. Lang was captain of the state championship team at Oakland Mills in 1984, and he went (( on to run at UMBC and Frostburg and complete 21 marathons, including seven at Boston.
