“Two meets for me this month all in one weekend; the Wake Forest Invitational College Meet on January 20th, and SE Regional Masters Indoor Championships on January 21 with my teammates Lynn and Shelly; and added bonus was another teammate Laura Drake Cole and her husband Mark there to cheer us on. I ran the mile at the college meet in a season best 5: 47.00. The following day it was first place in the 800m with a season best of 2:38.25, first place in the 400m with a season best of 1:10.27. To finish off my day I paces a friend through the mile. -We couldn’t do this without the support system and coaches!” -Lesley
