The California State Meet

During my freshman year I was fortunate to be a part of a special cross country team at Montgomery HS, in Santa Rosa, CA. I hope you enjoy my recollections of the leadership, camaraderie and joy that sprang from that season and our 2000 State Meet experience.

Paradise HS Track & Field

Last spring I made a visit two hours from my home in Northern California to spend an afternoon with the Paradise HS Bobcats five months after the Camp Fire leveled a majority of their town. I was humbled by my time with athletes, coaches and parents there as well as by the opportunity to make a small gesture of donating new uniforms to the team. The resilience and pride displayed by the people of Paradise provided perspective and inspiration that endures even as the rebuilding process in Butte County continues today.
