Food and fun at annual potluck dinner

Posted in Uncategorized on February 12, 2011 by socaltrackclub

A goodly bunch of So Cal Track Club athletes (see photo) and their spouses (and in one case, child and grandchild) gathered Feb. at Mark Cleary’s home in what amounted to a farewell to cross-country season and an anticipatory welcome for track season.

In many cases teammates reconnected for the first time since last track season. And the food was good, too.

Earlier that day, So Cal harriers battled for individual and Masters (40-49 and 50-59) age-group team honors at the USA Track & Field Cross Country Nationals at San Diego’s Mission Bay. So Cal’s Men’s 50-59 team won the gold, prevailed over Team Runner’s High on the tie-breaker.

Brian Nelson was the No. 2 overall finisher and the No. 1 runner for So Cal. Robert Ward (5th OA) was next for So Cal, followed by Mark Cleary (11th OA) and David Parke (12th OA). Nonscorers for So Cal included Perry Forrester (16th OA) and Chuck Forrester (17th OA).

Debbie Lee finished 8th in the W50-59 race, followed by So Cal teammate Pat Contreras in 12th.

Congratulations to all.
