Jack Daniels news…

I came across an article that referenced Dr. Daniels and the demise of the High Altitude Training Center in Flagstaff.

Read the article here…

The article atates: “Daniels’ credentials range from his assistance in Jim Ryun’s preparation for the high altitude of the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City to last year’s Women’s Olympic Marathon Trials, when an unheralded Magdelena Lewy Boulet earned a place on the podium. He worked with dozens of national-class runners over the course of his 40-plus year coaching career. Yet despite these credentials that have elevated Daniels to an almost legendary status, economic downturns have recently put Dr. Daniels out of work.”

I am really sad that the center could not keep operating, if no reason other than to allow Dr. Daniels and his family to remain in Flagstaff where they want to be. Pretty sad and harsh reality we all live in these days.

I am a guy who loves to run marathons, and has been gifted with exceptionally slow genes which makes for mid pack finishes in races. If I don't run I become an unbalanced manic fool, so yes...running is my prozac. I believe that the key to a happy productive life is balance. Balance in all areas of your life. If one area is out of balance, all others go out of balance. Come back often as I love to see the hit counter go up!!! View all posts by runfaraz
