Congratulations to our Civitas and Roybal 2014 LA Marathon Finishers: Janina, Brian, Guemil, Oliver, Daniel, Aileen, Raymond, Evelyn, Fernando, Pablo, Jose, Ms. Stratton and Mr. Nittle!
Not only did our students all finish, but they did it in grueling heat. As one of the signs from a marathon spectator read though, “Pain is temporary, pride is permanent!” Thanks, students for inspiring us all.
Special thanks to Ms. Thompson for being our chaperone, supporting us in Santa Monica. And also, huge appreciation to Mr. Ortiz, Mr. Gurrola, Ms. Warren and all the students that came out to cheer us on with oranges and water at Mile 5. You kept us going!
Finally, this season couldn’t have been possible without an amazing coaching staff. I’ve been honored to serve alongside the fabulous Ms. Stratton, Ms. Warren and Mr. Runkle all year. It’s been a joy!
Ready to register for the 2015 LA Marathon, anyone?!!
