What an amazing effort!

There has been some great runners that have come from the Salinas / Monterey Bay in the distances and marathon lately. Steve Moreno made two Olympic trials, finishing 15th and Miguel Nuci, who was an 11+ 2 miler in HS who went on to run 2:15 in the marathon! Not to mention Diego Estrada in the Olympic 10k. (Just to name a few)

Just shows why you should keep running and chasing your dreams.

Another great performance from Central Coast, well done Daniel!

Danny ran 4:41/10:04/16:29 in high school... quite the story of someone that joined as a sophomore, worked hard, did OK in high school, did great in college, and now is doing amazing!! As coach Small said, chase your dreams kids!
Couldn't happen to a better guy!
