Damon completed the Los Angeles Marathon on March 4th 2007 at the age of 11. He trained with a club from school called SRLA (Students Run LA). They ran after school 8 miles 3 times a week and long runs on Saturday for 4 months. As a club they participated in the La Puente 10K, the Cabrillo Beach 15K, the Orange County Half Marathon, and the 18 mile Friendship Run at Hansen Dam. Finally, they finished with the big LA Marathon. Damon got second in his club with a time of 5:47:07. He was privileged to run alongside his uncle Jesse, who is a very experienced runner and helped Damon keep it up. Thank you so much Jesse! We are so proud of you Damon!!!
