ocmarathon2017toplogoInspired by his 2017 return to the Argyros School classroom, 
President Emeritus Jim Doti 
challenges his business statistics students to join him in running the OC Half Marathon on Sunday, May 7.  Dr. Doti, and the rest of the informal Chapman running group, are adopting the Hal Higdon’s Novice Training program for completing the 13.1-mile half marathon distance.

Dr. Doti runs with his students on Wednesday mornings from 8 to 9 a.m. and encourages Chapman community members to meet in front of Memorial Hall for a 2-to-4-mile run around Old Towne Orange.

Fun fact: Dr. Doti has completed over 60 marathons, and yes, you read that statistic correctly! 

As an added bonus, Dr. Doti reveals that all OC Half Marathon finishers receive a great-looking medal. Better yet, you can find inspiration in the Jim Doti running bobblehead, along with the complete set of “Jim Doti Bobbleheads.”

Jim Doti Running Bobblehead

The Jim Doti running bobblehead is one of six bobbleheads that was released as a set in June 2016. The entire collection of “Jim Doti Bobbleheads” was presented at a Board of Trustees/Governors Summer Social.

So, whether you’re a novice runner, first-time half-marathon registrant, or avid runner, rest assured that by participating in Dr. Doti’s running challenge, you’re in good hands. Or rather, your feet will be in good company!
