Joan Nesbit Mabe has agreed to coach a group of elite (or elite-hopeful) runners in Carrboro, North Carolina.

Fleet Feet Carrboro has partnered with my lifelong sponsor, New Balance Athletic Shoes, Inc., to help support a distance running team of 7 women and 7 men (with USATF Elite club) in Carrboro, NC. We will be called The Carrboro Athletics Club, the CAC. Soon, we will have a team blog with weekly posts from our athletes so friends, famlies, and fans can chart their progress from now until the 2008 Olympic Trials.

I look forward to reading about their training and racing results, both to see how they manage to break into the professional community as well as to compare my own times and performances.
