Maya L., P.J. L., Lilo B. and Gabriel Z. participated in the First-ever Nike Young Athlete Run at our home track, Kezar Stadium on October 17, 2015. This event was a part of the overall Nike Women SF weekend with a long-standing Nike Women’s Half Marathon held on October 18.
12 years old Maya L., a veteran middle distance runner, took off the last lap around the 150m mark, as her coach always tells her to do. All her teammates followed her to the finish line: a 9-year-old rookie Gabriel, 12-year-old girl, Lilo and Maya’s sister P.J. followed her and finish the 800m run. MacCanDo kids swept first to the fourth place in the 800m Run at the First Nike Young Athlete Run!
The team is in the middle fall training. This was a nice friendly weekend event for the kids.
