2018 Board of Directors Election
I found out about Reston Runners through Anna like most people! At that point I don’t think I knew how long a marathon was, but I soon found myself in the thick of training for my first MCM. I love being a part of the RR community and will continue to emphasize the wonderful social activities we sponsor, while reaching out to the Reston area residents to encourage fitness and fun.
Hi, I'm Mike McCord, currently a member at large on the board and seeking the position of Vice President. I've been running with our club for 7 years and have been a resident of Reston for 5 years. I think Reston Runners exemplifies the best of Reston. My priorities would be to maintain our quality running and walking programs as we continue working to bring in younger runners to our club.
I've been a member of Reston Runners for 15 + years who enjoys running for the fun of it. I'm a coach for the Womens Training Program (WTP) for the past 15 years and a co-coordinator of the WTP for the last three years. Additionally, I’m the treasurer of the Reston Runners Community Funds since the inception of the fund. Reston Runners keeps Reston moving and I’m glad to be part of the organization.
As a Reston Runners member since 1987, participating in Club activities is part of my lifestyle, and an aspect of our community that I value highly. I believe that the Club should aim to preserve the enjoyment of our finest events and the fellowship among members, while adopting changes to keep the Club in step with our evolving technology and social environment. I welcome the opportunity to serve the Club for another year as Secretary.
Director of Walking Programs
OK, walkers, let’s have fun this year! (I'm not much on big statements)
Member at Large
As a member of Reston Runners since 1990, I want to continue to give back to a community that has provided me with great cameraderie and fitness. I have been an active volunteer, and since 2015 have been responsible for the Website and related online support including registrations and the eNews. In joining the Board, I would look to help the Club continue to be fun and relevant for all our members.
My name is Joan Koss and I have been a club member for 25 years. I have been active in many ways from the picnic committee, Youth in Motion, Pre-Race Dinner for the Runners Marathon of Reston and years ago, the Database Administrator for the Women’s Training Program. I would welcome the opportunity to join the board and strategize ways to extend our camaraderie within the group and strategize marketing to the under 40 crowd.
