Michael Cohen Since around 2004 I joined the track club and it’s been a major part of my life since then. It has helped me to fall in love with running and I’ve met a lot of my best friends from the community along the way. I’d say it really has made a difference in my life as Coach Paul would say. (I’m sure I’m not the 1st person to say this but it’s true)

I’d enjoy the opportunity to get more involved behind the scenes and offer my time to support the club now and have an impact on the direction of where it will go in the future.

I’m sure I‘ll have some questions about what the commitment truly entails but I’m pretty confident I’d be up for the role. Let me know what next steps would be required should I be considered.

Jamie Fryrear I’m a runner!
I love SDTC!
I love making it better!
Uyen Phu After completing a 5K in 2017, I fell in love with running and quickly signed up for all the races including the Triple Crown. A colleague mentioned joining a running club to help train for the races and I signed up for the 2017 Whatever Training Program (now part of the Summer/Fall Training Program). I’ve met the most amazing group of running friends that I honestly can say that if it wasn’t for them, I probably wouldn’t be running still (shout out to the Turtle Racing Team).

SDTC had such a big impact on my life that I jumped right into helping where I could—with merchandise sells, social media, membership services and my current role as the co-editor for the weekly training program newsletter. I would love to see what I can provide as a active board member.

Jillian Rodriguez Jillian Rodriguez is an Army Veteran who served in the Signal Corps in South Korea and Fort Hood, Texas. Since getting out of the military she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Hawaii Pacific University. She presently has 10 years of Federal service and is currently serving the Navy in a civilian capacity at Navy Region Southwest since 2017. Jillian wishes she knew about the San Diego Track Club (SDTC) since she moved to San Diego, but unfortunately didn’t know about it until late 2021, when she ran her first ever marathon, Rock and Roll SD and took notice of the Pace Team hosted by SDTC. Jillian joined the Track Club in January of 2022 for the Rockin’ and Runnin’ program and shaved a whopping 34 minutes off her marathon time! Since then she has also qualified for the Boston Marathon, something she thought she could never do and was only able to accomplish because of the support of the SDTC. She is now the biggest believer of the Track Club, its methods, and the power of group running. Jillian joined the military with service on her mind, and would love to continue that dedicated service on the SDTC Board working to push the Track Club’s mission forward with accessibility, equity, and progress at the forefront of her mind! She is a lifelong learner, always up for a challenge and believes that approaching most every situation with kindness, understanding, and a little lightheartedness is always the critical path forward. Her mantra is, “I have two hands and can help!” After living in many places she is incredibly grateful to call sunny San Diego home for the past 5 years and plans to be here for many more years running with her tribe, her incredible community that she has found within the SDTC!
Danielle Weizman I was born and raised in San Diego and live in La Mesa with my husband, two boys (ages 6 and 8), and two dogs.  I have been an avid runner since I was 12 years old and have run many races, including marathons and half-marathons.  When I finished the America’s Finest City Half in August, I discovered the San Diego Track Club from the booth and recruiter.  I am in love with this organization and the sense of community it creates, bringing people together and empowering them to improve their skills while having fun!

I earned my B.A. in Urban Studies & Planning from UCSD, Master of Energy Regulation & Law from Vermont Law School, and M.S. in Strategic Management from Indiana University.  During the day, I work as Policy & Strategy Manager in electric resource planning for SDG&E, helping to drive a reliable electric grid powered by clean technologies (solar, wind, batteries, etc.).  Outside of work, I am passionate about serving my community.  I serve as board secretary for the Valle De Oro Community Planning Group, National Young Leadership Cabinet for Jewish Federations of North America, and Volunteer Coordinator for East Country Transitional Living Center.  As the saying goes, “If you want to get something done, give it to the busiest person you know.”  I am that person. I am incredibly efficient and professional.  I am someone you can always rely on to get a job done, and I am generally recognized as a thought leader who drives results.  I would bring these talents to the San Diego Track Club to help actualize the board’s vision.
