I am biased. I’m classified as a slo-mo runner. But recently I attended a real runners’ retirement party. I also read in the news about another runner who coached at Sweet Home. These two individuals brought together an assorted group of students with different backgrounds, race, personal problems and blended them into a team. And the students will attest to that. The coaches also affected life beyond track for the students.
I propose for the next presidential election that one of these ex-coaches run for office. Our country needs to become a team.
