Congratulations to our LA Marathon Finishers!

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?!!

Countdown to the LA Marathon!

Ringing in the Holiday Season with 13.1 Miles!

It was a snowy December morning in Pomona when Civitas and Roybal runners arrived at the LA County Fairgrounds on Sunday, December 15th. Okay, so it was fake snow, but the Holiday Half Marathon, all 13.1 miles, was very real! Our student runners continue to impress us, all of them completing the grueling course and earning themselves a shiny Snowflake medal. Very proud of all your efforts, students!

Please congratulate our finishers: Janina, Brian, Guemil, Oliver, Daniel, Aileen, Raymond, Evelyn, Fernando, Pablo, and Jose.

Proud coaching staff: Ms. Stratton, Ms. Warren, Mr. Nittle and Mr. Runkle

We’re training for the 2014 LA Marathon.  Remember, if you can be one of the few to run a marathon, you can be one of the many to graduate college!

Next race: Southern California Half Marathon (13.1 miles) on Saturday, January 11th in Irvine!  Come cheer on our Civitas/Roybal Runners!
