I have been a teacher at Pike High School for 17 years and a distance coach for XC and T&F for the last 13 years at Pike. I love teaching and encouraging my students and athletes to pursue their dreams as goals. I am attempting to get myself back into shape. It seems each year it gets a little harder. My goal is to qualify for Boston. I want to show my students and athletes that sometimes you have to keep trying to reach those goals. I have been close but not quite there yet. Last year I had C5 through C7 fusion and lost some valuable training time. The PTEF Pike Educational Foundation does some great things and I hope to be their top earner for this campaign. All amounts add up. Thank you for your support.
