About Me

Ran Cross Country and Track at Hernando High in the early 1980's. Ran for Coach Ernie Chatman and Track Coach Terry Owens. Was a mediocre runner on some pretty good teams. Have lifelong memories and friends from "the good ole days."
Currently the Girl's Cross Country Coach at Weeki Wachee High School.
