From the coach:

“Everything touches on running – organize and time three dozen events a year, design and print shirts for as many, and have primarily covered the sport from high school to the Olympics. Still find time and energy to run myself, although a lot slower. Most of the friends I’ve made have come through running – it’s truly a universal and lifelong sport.” – Jim Gerweck
