All my dreams have come true.  Personal bests, national and world championships, national and world rankings.  As a former marathoner (36 marathons), Ric conviznced me that I’m actually a middle distance runner (1-mile, 1500m, 800m).  At 63 years old, I’m now in the best shape of my life!  We have such a great, supportive masters team.  After every workout, I walk away happy and inspired, not broken down and injured.

"Ric helped me realize that you're never too old to enjoy competing in Track and Field - even if you're slowing down.  He has served as my most trusted mentor and coaching inspiration.  The friendship and support I have received from our group have been absolutely precious to me and are unique from any group experience I have had in my lifetime."
