Galloway 2011 Annual Program Director's Meeting

This weekend, all of the Galloway Program Directors came to Atlanta for our annual meeting. It was my first time at one of these meetings. It was great to meet all of the other PDs and pick their brains on ways to make our program better this year. I am really excited to announce that Jeff Galloway himself will be attending our kickoff this year! Activities will include a book signing at Wasatch Running Center, a running school and information meetings.

Here are a few photos from the weekend:

Jeff Galloway and I

Amby Burfoot- Runner's World writer and Boston Marathon winner. We ran together Saturday morning and talked about all the awesome Utah marathons.

Eric Johnson and I had something in common. We are both PDs and Marathon Maniacs! Eric is also a 50 State finisher!

2011 Has Got to Get Better!

I was so optimistic about 2011,  then all hell broke loose! Teresa and I had pretty much locked down a potential 2011 race schedule on January 5th. On January 6th, I got laid off from the job I have been at for the past 3 years. HUGE BUMMER!!

Even worse, on Sunday January 9th, we got news that our dear friend and fellow Maniac, Greg Goebel collapsed while running the Zoom Yah Yah marathon and was rushed to the hospital, where is still remains today. Get well soon my friend, the Maniac world needs you!

2011 has got to get better!

Happy New Year!!

About 50 runners rang in the New Year by running the 1st Annual Utah Marathon Maniacs Half Marathon! The temperature at the start was 4 degrees, but we all had a great time! Thanks to Jonathan Crampton for putting this all together in about 2 weeks!
