Few people know this, but a group of dedicated runners and volunteers have been working since this summer to gain formal approval of a popular pilot program designed for half marathoners in San Diego. After many meetings, missives and revisions, we unveiled our grand plan Tuesday evening to the San Diego Track Club’s board of directors – and gained unanimous approval.
I was due to deliver the final presentation, but a last-minute work project involving a presidential candidate prevented me from giving my PowerPoint talk. The group did a wonderful job in my absence. Beginning next June, up to 125 lucky runners will be able to train weekly with full support for a variety of summer, fall and early winter races. I intend to be one of them.
For now, I continue to train on my own.
