Wow - what a shocker. Bob was my coach at San Diego St. in the late 70's. He and I later worked together at Second Sole Athletic Shoes (which he co-founded). More than being a great runner Bob was a great coach and friend. I last saw Bob about 3 years ago when he was passing through Santa Barbara. It was great to see him again. I took the time to let him know the affect he had on my life - glad I did.
Some of the runners Bob coached included Bobby Thomas (former world junior xc champ), Bill St. John (steeple, 5,000), Brian Hunsaker (5,000).
