Jane Fisher, assistant professor in the Diablo Valley College art department since 2006, ran the Oakland Half-Marathon in March for the third straight year, finishing the 13.1 miles with a time of 2 hours and 25 minutes.
Fisher has been running since about 1997, and said she hasn’t run in any other events since the San Francisco half-marathon in 2010. At that time, she raised $865 for the DVC art department.
“Running is something I can do on the days I don’t have time to go to the gym,” Fisher explained. “And I love the city of Oakland. Participating in this event gives me the opportunity to show my support for my city. It’s also a great feeling of satisfaction for a relatively small investment of time.”
