Well , to start off my name is Jerry and I am pretty excited about joining up with the racing team. I just recently moved down here from NY to teach in PGC. I graduated this spring from SUNY Cortland where I ran cross track and the whole works. Being from NY i do not know many people in the area aside from a few buddies who go to school in DC so I shot Jake an email about a week ago about training since I knew he was down here running. How did I meet a certain Jake Klim you may ask? At the Cherry Blossom 10 miler last April Jake was kind enough to throw me a split from mile 2-3 on the course since I didn't tap the button on my watch. From there I remembered his name from results and his blog. So I put two and two together and since this sport of running is pretty important to me decided to get in contact to see if there were people in the area that were serious about running.
Today I met up with Jake and Karl at the line and did a few miles with them around the park. It will be some good fun running with everyone and I look forward to meeting everyone. Drop me an email if you'd like, if not that is fine I'm sure I'll get to see you all some time.
