The city commissioners of Tarpon Springs, Florida unanimously voted to approve the funding and the organization of The One Mile Runner ceremonial first race of the 20/20/20<5@45. On Saturday, I traveled to Tarpon Springs to meet the mayor of Tarpon Springs, Beverly Billiris. We decided on the time of the event = 8:00am on May 10th and went over other particulars for the race. Beverly is very supportive and is a huge assest to the city of Tarpon Springs. The race course is going to begin outside of Faklis Department store and finish at the Sponge Docks of lower Tarpon Springs. My pacer for the ceremonial race, the fastest future priest in America -Anthony Velardocchia, and I did our sprint work on the track at Tarpon Springs High School. It is great to workout with Anthony. He has a positive spirit and we are working on our pacing during the first part of the race. I wanted to thank in advance all the residents of Tarpon Springs who have supported and welcomed me. Tarpon Springs is my home city for the 20/20/20<5@45!
