Students Run Los Angeles Marathon on March 18, 2012

Students began arriving at Los Nietos Middle School at 4:00 a.m. on the morning of the L.A. Marathon, March 18, 2012. They were in good spirits and ready to load the bus. Dressed in bright jerseys, they completed their look with light plastic rain gear, prepared for the unpredictable weather.

Nineteen students have trained long and hard afterschool and on weekends in preparation for the big run. On Marathon morning, they were joined by their dedicated coaches who would continue to inspire, coach, and lead them to success at the finish line to include: Mrs. Linda Cojohn, Mr. William Chavez, Mr. Barcelo, Ms. Patricia Baldelomar, Ms. Chammy Chan, and Ms. Christina Fontenot.

Congratulations to the amazing group of athletes, their supportive families, and fabulous coaches.

*Linda Cojohn, our SRLA Coordinator.
