Atlanta Track Club (ATC) is a running and training organization based in Atlanta. Of their 24,000 or so members, they support, at varying levels, about 50 elite athletes who train and participate competitively. I'm lucky enough to be one of their elite athletes. In addition to comaraderie at meets and the sharing of training tips, we are sponsored by Mizuno for gear and shoes. See below a shout-out by ATC for my third championship win. Thanks, ATC!
Founded as a mid- and long-distance running organization, ATC staff has recently focused a bit more on masters track and field including participating in this summer's USATF Masters National Championships. It was great to share this experience with the team and winning the championship was a bonus, too!
