Career Highlights: I grew up in the Washington, D.C. area and participated in track and field as a member of Dave’s Speedettes Track Club from 1968-1971. After that, I took a long break from track and field (about 35 years), but continued to participate in athletics and ran lots of road races. In 2006, my friend suggested we participate in the Acadiana Senior Games track and field meet. I was hooked!
