Amy Dixon is in her first year as Head Coach for the Jefferson Elementary School 100 Mile Club® in Clovis, CA. Jefferson is piloting the program this year with 2 classes (1st and 2nd graders!), with the hopes of opening it up to the whole school next year. According to Coach Amy, it has been a fun experience so far.
“I have been blown away by the enthusiasm of some of these tiny kids, showing up early and putting in over a mile before school even starts,” she writes.
In addition to running morning laps with 1st and 2nd graders, she has also completed two half-marathons in the last year. GO AMY!!
While running is one of her favorite pastimes, her real love is writing for children. Her first book, MARATHON MOUSE, came out from Sky Pony Press last year. (We have a copy at The 100 Mile Club Offices, and we absolutely LOVE IT!! )
Amy writes from her home, where she lives with her four little inspirations and her marathon-running husband, Rob. We think Amy is a true gem, and are so glad she has chosen 100 Mile Club and Accepted the Challenge with her teeny tiny runners at Jefferson School.
