Tom has been actively involved with the San Diego Track Club for many years regularly attending Tuesday night workouts, club socials, has served on the Board of Directors and as a club officer. He was also a team captain for a number of years and has been named SDTC runner of the year. Tom was an avid runner who continued to strive for PR’s in all distances, competing in anything from 400m to ultramarathons.

When he was younger he served in the Marine Corps. Tom ran with Kevin McCarey’s group on Saturday as he habitually did, and ran 15 mile training run on Sunday. His smiling face and easy going nature will be missed at workouts and socials. His absence will be notable at local track meets, road and trail races of any length, and on the running paths around Mission Bay and San Diego County.
