BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The L.A. LEGGERS board of directors is an all-volunteer body that oversees all aspects of the club. Elections take place each spring, and board members each serve a two-year term. Thank you to the always-talented Loc Tran for taking the majority of 2018-19 Board Member photos!

 

David, President: As a member of the Leggers since 2014, David has completed two L.A. Marathons and several half-marathons. David credits the Leggers' training program with not only getting him across the finish line, but with helping him recover from a torn ACL and meniscus and with developing many new and interesting friendships. This year, he will be serving as the President of the club and looks forward to 2018-2019 training season.

 

Barry: Barry says: Since joining the LEGGERS in 2012, the club has not only helped me grow as an endurance athlete but also in other parts of my life. I am now a USATF and RRCA Level 1 Coach thanks in big part to the encouragement and guidance I received from my fellow LEGGERS. This season, I will continue to help provide Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday options for midweek training through the LEGGERS association with sister clubs in Southern California. As an all-volunteer organization, I welcome suggestions from everyone on how to grow our great club. Just come up and say "Hi" - I'm the one in the purple kilt!

 

Bob, CFO: I love joining my good friends and fellow runners on a long, slow run every Saturday morning.  I thoroughly enjoy the fact the LA Leggers are a non-profit club where we are all volunteers and our total focus is on supporting and encouraging each other. On a personal note, I started running marathons at 53 and my lifetime goal is to have as many marathon medals as my age. 

 

Caylin, Vice President: Caylin joined the Leggers in 2017 after moving to Los Angeles for graduate school. She has completed two full marathons, several halves, and many 10ks and 5ks. She loves running and giving back to the community, which is why she joined the Leggers board in 2018. She’s very excited about helping manage the Leggers’ social media, marketing and communication. Her ultimate goal is to run a marathon in all 50 states.

 

Heidi: Heidi was always a short distance runner. After breaking her back, elbow and hip in a  serious rock-climbing accident, she vowed to run a marathon if and when she fully recovered. Two years after the accident, she ran her first marathon with the support and inspiration of the LA Leggers! Now she is a runner for life, and enjoys helping other people find their own self-empowerment through fitness. This season she is a mentor for the 9 runners, but you might see her running slower or joining the walking groups- because she is also expecting twins this January! Come say hi, she'll be the one with the big belly.

 

Linda: Linda joined the Leggers in 2011 based on a friend's recommendation. Never having run before, she trained with the 12s and completed her 1st LA Marathon in 2012. 2018 is her second year on the Board and she is the Secretary. She is also on the Communications, Events and Weekly/Hospitality committees. She's here to support the Leggers and give back.

 

Maria: Out Running   

 

Kenny: Out Running

 

Maria: I love being outdoors.  The Leggers give everyone a structured program to follow, and they do all the work for you. They choose the route, the length, and monitor the timing. I just have to follow the person in front of me, and enjoy the Santa Monica scenery.  

 

China: My journey with the Leggers started in 2014. That's how I found my running family. The Leggers taught me run style and endurance. I ran my first marathon in 2015 and have now completed my 8th. My Legger sisters have been an endless source of support. We've traveled to foreign countries for runs (Paris and Rio this past year). Saturdays you'll find me at 1450 followed by brunch. I'm a mentor for the 13s and the Volunteer Coordinator. I want the Legger experience to be as wonderful for everyone as it has been for me.
