Coaches extraordinaire!!!

Coaches extraordinaire!!!

Me and Tavin relay

Two of the best coaches I’ve worked with now coach at a local high school.  Lupe Cabada and Sarah Raitter are not only amazing coaches, I am honored to call them friends.  They both coach at Damonte Ranch High School here in Reno, NV.  As a very last minute fundraiser (less than a week to put things together), they directed – and ran – relays.  Four races, four people on each team.

First up was a 1600.  Each of us ran 4 laps for a mile total.  We decided we preferred a hand slap over carrying a baton……

Second up was a mixed bag.  1200, 400, 800, 1600.  I ran the 800 distance.

First of all, I had an amazing team.  Courtney, Lucia and Margarita were all fantastic.  It was a blast and from a runners perspective, things went seamlessly.  I know as race directors, there will be tweaks for next time, but it really was a great event.  Very fast, very fun, really competitive and great to see so many high school aged kids kicking my butt.
