         It’s hard to believe I’m writing this, but in 2021, we are entering our 18th year of coaching. We absolutely must offer our sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of you–Camelback Coaching        athletes past and present–for making this possible. For the last 17 years, it has been an honor and a privilege to work with you and help you in the pursuit of your goals. Here’s to a safe and healthy 2021 . . . hopefully, with actual races. 🙂
