The almost-thirty-year-old Daniel Tapia is a homegrown athlete who went to North Monterey Country HS and Hartnell College before moving to UC Santa Cruz. He also earned a degree from the Monterey College of Law.
“I’m happy with my run here as I’ve only been training for four weeks. In another month, I’ll race the Big Sur Half. It’s my home, so I’ll have my family out!” I’m pleased to report that Big Sur went well for Daniel. He placed a very fine second.
After Big Sur, Daniel’s focus will be the California International Marathon in December. A very positive young runner, Daniel exemplifies the fine athletes we cover in California Track & Running News!
See you on the roads!
