Sev's the rock

Blake's been working on a column about her coach, Bob Sevene. Here's a little taste of what she will have in Saturday's paper:
I have been fortunate enough in my career to always have a coach present except for one year when I coached myself. That was before I found Bob Sevene. He’s definitely been my rock all these years. It’s a rare day he misses a practice, and he never complains — even if he is riding his bike next to me in cold, sideways rain. It’s nice to know he is willing to suffer with me. The fact he was one of the best 800-meter runners in the country before he was drafted and served in Vietnam means he understands the pain of disappointment after a bad race.
