Coach Sommers Runs His First Marathon

Saturday, May 1 2010

On May 1st, 2010, Highland Park High School Boys Assistant Track & Field Coach Mike Sommers ran in the Illinois Marathon.  The race took place in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois.  This was his first marathon.   Despite a sore knee that has hindered his training recently, Sommers ran 3:16:45 and finished in 61st place out of over 1,500 runners!  
Great job!

"I haven't run more than 7 miles in over a month, so we'll see how it goes," -Coach Sommers at Spartan last night. Beast.
