On Saturday, March 1, we held our annual Reston Runner's Dinner, held at Reston Community Center at Hunter Woods. Here we have the photogenically blessed Geoff and his lovely wife Kate. BTW, Geoff has taken on managing course marking duties (filling some huge shoes left by Deedee, who had this role for years and did an amazing job!), and he could use all the help we can offer him. At the dinner I presented the annual slide show, whcih I finally figured out how to post on YouTube - here's the link to this year's presentation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzVyX0FcwSU To get to the photo set from last Saturday, just click on the photo!
