Congrats to all of you who competed this weekend.... I'm bound to miss some milestones, but I'll try to capture what I know happened!   If you know of a Team R.E.D. members accomplishments, and don't see them posted here, just drop me an email at and I'll try to get it included!

Among the many running related Milestones at Grandmas Marathon... It's notable to share, Sonja and Scott celebrated their 28th Wedding Anniversary, while Wendy and Tom celebrated their 27th! - and Tod & Meg are celebrating 30 years!  (they just chose to celebrate without a marathon!)

There were lots of great times (and several Boston Qualifying results) turned in at Grandmas Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K.  They are not all mentioned here yet below I showcased a few shots of people who PR'd, Placed and/or accomplished their first something!
