2012 was a great year at Run Your Potential. We accomplished 84 PR’s out of 210 races, a 40% PR ratio which is really incredible. 34 marathon races exceeded the Boston Marathon Qualifying standard and 9 of those were first time BQ’s. in 2012 groups of our runners went to the Houston Half/Full Marathon (and Olympic Trials), Surf City Half and Full Marathon, Boston Marathon, Orange County races (marathon, half and 5K), Ojai Marathon, St. George Marathon, Twin Cities Marathon, Chicago Marathon and California International Marathon.
17 Run Your Potential runners are signed up for the 2013 Boston Marathon along with many running Surf City, Carlsbad 5000, Ojai and wide variety of other races from the mile to ultra distances. While the core group of runners live in the Southern California area and met for weekly track/hill/tempo and long run workouts, there are runners from 16 different states and 2 other countries training with the group virtually and meeting up at various races around the country.
Coach John continues this year as a lululemon run ambassador for the lulu Irvine Spectrum Store, leading weekly training runs for newer and more experienced runners. We continue to give back by supporting many charities and volunteering at events for Operation Jack and Team Laura (supporting the John Wayne Cancer Foundation)
Cheers and Happy New Year !!
