Interview with Maggie Vessey's coach on letsrun.com

Great interview with Maggie Vessey's coach by letsrun.com's Robert Johnson. It's a lengthy interview but well worth the read. The following is the lead up to the interview.

Brock is a graduate of Stanford University where he ran under legendary Stanford coach Payton Jordan Marshall Clark (Payton Jordan was the head of the program) and majored in Psychology. He also has a masters from UCSB in ergonomics or as he said, "I call it exercise physiology, the call it ergonomics." Brock placed 5th in the 1972 US Olympic Trials marathon. Professionally, he is best known for being the long-time coach at Santa Cruz High School, where he first starting coaching in 1974. From 1981 to 1997, Brock coached at Cabrillo College in the junior college ranks. Cabrillo dropped their track program and Brock refused to coach just cross country. He returned to Santa Cruz HS where he now coaches once again. Additionally, he coaches and is the general manager of the Santa Cruz track club. )
