Edmund (a.k.a. Ed) All everything Leader

1. How did you get involved with The Runners’ Den?
When I first started running, Paul encouraged me to go the distance and train for my first Full Marathon in 1995. When The Runners’ Den opened in 2000, I knew I wanted to be part of their running group. I’ve been a participant and leader ever since.

2. What do you love most about running here?
I love how inclusive The Runners’ Den is. No matter what pace you’re in, we’re all ONE team. That’s why when I ran my 100th Half Marathon last year, I carried over 50 pairs of shoe laces across the finish line to symbolize my friends running with me.

3. Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Don’t give up. Years ago, I was told to hang up my running shoes because I don’t know how to run 400 meters. Instead, I took Paul’s advice and started running Full and Half Marathons. The rest is history.

Patricia – Team Awesome Group Leader

1. How are you involved with The Runners’ Den?
I’ve been a customer since the beginning, and after joining the Tuesday clinic I was hooked. For more than 5 years now I’ve been leading Team Awesome, a.k.a the 2:20 to finish running group. I am the groups time keeper, drill sergeant, and motivator.

2. What do you love most about running here?
To me it feels like The Runners’ Den is one giant family. At the Den no one gets left behind. It doesn’t matter what pace group you run in, we’re all runners getting together to workout. At the end of each session everyone is smiling.

3. Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Watch out I love to run through puddles!
