Rob, I'm Eric Lambert. I'm a high school runner down in Cedar and I'm graduating from High School come next spring, so I'm the market for a coach/college. I was just wondering if you had any advice or places/people that would be good to look into.

Hey Eric - I sent you a private email. Be glad to run some ideas by you.
