ABOUT ROOSEVELT
Roosevelt has been running competitively for 20 years.  As a runner with a wide range he was won races from the 800 to the marathon, from High School to College and beyond.  His past few years have been focused on the half marathon, but recently ran a competitive 10k XC event in the Open Division at the USATF Club Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky helping his Cal Coast Teammates, and by-the-way he also won the Arizona Rock-n-Roll Marathon for his second time just four weeks later.  Roosevelt lives and trains in Hesperia/Oak Hills, CA and is a teacher at Mesa Linda Middle School.  When he is not training or teaching he enjoys playing guitar.
