Jan Gautier, New Rock/Creek Race Team Member for 2010
Occupation: 6th grade Science Teacher at Baylor- Varsity Boy’s Cross Country Coach & Middle school Girl’s Cross Country and track coach
As a younger runner, I was 4 time AllAmerican in College and National Champion in the 3000. I had PR’s of 34:30 for the 10K and 2:45 for the marathon. I qualified in 1999 for the Olympic Trials Marathon. As a Master’s runner, I have run 38 minutes for the 10K, but have been running around 40 minutes lately. I run about 50 miles a week now with cross training. I would like to pick up the mileage and drop times in the half marathon distance.
