Costa Mesa, CA
April 6th, 2011
Amazing how life works! Im back for a few weeks to the place where my life in the US started, Orange County. While Im here mainly for sea level training (lots of running), nothing makes me more excited than having the opportunity to reach out to our youth in the place than once open the doors for me.
It was here in Costa Mesa where I took my first English classes, where I first learned about running, graduated from high school, went to a Junior College and eventually ended up transferring to Adams State College in Colorado. Now, back in town, It only made sense to go out there and give something back to the community.
This time I had the opportunity to run and visit with students from Adams School during their 20 minute Jog Walk event. The event started at 8:30 a.m on April 6th. After taking some pictures and videos, I stayed a bit longer to visit with some students while they were in class.
I have to thank the principal and teachers for allowing me to share some of my experiences with the students. To all the kids that participated, "Great Job". It is my hope that all your dreams and aspirations come true. Who knows maybe, a few years from now, many of you will be the ones coming back sharing your experiences to the new generations. One thing is for sure, my visit to Adams School will be one to remember. Thank You All for making it so SPECIAL!
Be, Dream, and Believe!
