It was a warm day at the Mason Run @ Chester Woods... but a great day! We started with a moment of silence and reflection.
In Memory of Rachel Nepstad who passed away 1 year ago on June 4th. Rachel was a Byron Track & Field Athlete, and her family are fantastic members and volunteers with Team R.E.D. and the Rochester Track Club.
In Memory of Jon Mathson who passed away May 20th, 2017 during the Superior Spring Trail Race. Jon was a veteran Trail runner and many of the runners at the Mason Run were also at Superior that day.
In Memory of Reggie Oeltjen. A wonderful member of Team R.E.D. and the Rochester Track Club. Reggie passed away May 24th in the midst of his Border to Border run from South Dakota to Wisconsin. Reggie was kind and generous with his time. We even used his gator at Chester Woods this weekend.
Thanks to everyone for taking time to reflect on just how fortunate each of us are... We have each other in our lives, and we're blessed to be able to do the things we do.
The 2017 race was spectacular, and a post race party with live music was a great day to wrap things up. Thanks.. .and we hope to see you all next year!
