Meet David Fuentes, the new Core Class instructor for Jack & Adam's. David grew up in Boerne, Texas and started running his sophomore year in high school. After winning back to back state titles his junior and senior years he went on to Texas State for one year where he ran cross country/track. He finished his last 3 years at St. Edwards.

Under Derick he has won the Austin Half Marathon twice (2010, 2011), ran a personal best of 1:06 in the Half Marathon so far at the St. Louis Half Marathon and ran a strong 2:31 at the Chicago Marathon for his first Marathon.
