Welcome Back, Philip Izzo!

February 15, 2018


By John Lockhart

Wintering over in San Diego from Plymouth, Massachusetts, Philip lived in Carlsbad for 11 years, 2003-14 with his partner Bob, now deceased, before returning to his roots in The Bay State in 2014 at the urging of his adult children. A runner, Philip loves living in the Bay State, but not in the depths of a Massachusetts winter.

He’s a 3-4 mile guy, five days a week, venturing to 5K and other race distances, such as a 7-mile course on Cape Cod.

Philip is glad he ran into Jerry Buckley in early January, found the club and joined up. He enjoys the Saturday morning club runs/walks meet up at Sixth and Laurel and breakfast get together at Big City Bagels in Hillcrest. No small benefit: both are outdoors, and so far this year, during “The Endless Summer!”
