Byron Team R.E.D.

I had the chance to go speak to and run with the Byron Team R.E.D. runners the other night at the Bear's Den.  Tom O'Leary sure knows how to get others out to have some fun running!  I spoke for about 30-40 minutes and then joined them for a run.  After 6 miles of conversation I spent the rest of the evening visiting with many on the team about Mr. Parry's Endurance Challenge, Brooks Running shoes, training, races, and "bucket-list" runs we all wish to do.  I looked at my watch at 9:30 and couldn't believe I had been there 4 hours already!  Thank you Tom for making me an honorary member of the team...I will have to show up for more of the fun when I can.  I am honored to have been invited and left inspired by those that I met!

I also got a chance to visit with Jim Mason a bit about the Chester Woods Trail Run 50K to be held the weekend after my 7 Marathons in 7 Days.  He gave me a formal invitation, so looks like I will need to recover quickly!  From his race blog:
