Susan has been a club member for seven years and this is her first year serving on the Board.  Susan has been a Pace Coach for the First Time Marathon Program and for the Winter Half Program for several years.  Susan has recently ventured out onto the trails and into the world of ultrarunning.    Susan is eager to share her knowledge of the County’s magnificent trails and key Regional races not to miss.

Andrea Keane-Myers
Member at Large

Andrea has been a club member for 12 years and has participated in numerous club distance training programs (FTM, XMP, SDP etc.).  She has run just about every race the club offers (minus a few of the cross country races- her "grace" on trails is legendary). She has been lucky enough to win her age group in the Championship Series four of the past five years.  Andrea has also volunteered at medical stations for the Parks Half Marathon and the Greenway Trail 50K, helped prepare food and served as a course marshal at a large number of races, and handed out gallons of water and ice cubes at Riley’s Rumble. She has completed 26 marathons (so far) and the JFK 50 miler- where she managed to trip and fall on an embedded reflector on the road within the first mile.  When not volunteering and completing races for MCRRC with the rest of the Myers family, she can be seen running with, and trying not to trip over, her trusty Weimeraner, Nimby the Magnificent.

Nancy Joy Keller
Member at Large

Nancy has been a club member for just over two years now.  She began running with BWR in 2013, and has remained an active participant in successive programs ever since.  She loves running in the back of the pack and reaping the benefits of such a supportive group!  Nancy is an avid proponent of the phrase "trust in the program" and has decided that is is time to give back to the club community.  She is currently a pace coach for BWR (2015), and plans to start training for her first marathon with FTM (2015).  Her husband serves as her greatest inspiration; she has admired his self-discipline throughout his incredible journey to completing his second Ironman triathlon this past year.  Together with their two dogs, they enjoy living nearby the trails surrounding Lake Needwood.

 

Gretchen Bolton
Member at Large

Gretchen has been an Alpine skier since her early 20's and also did dance ice skating, but didn't start running as a sport until she was 62 years old, 7 years ago, finding a sports home very soon with MCRRC, its races and training programs.  She has now run in 14 marathons (2 dnf'd, one bombed), at least 5 ultra trail races, and numerous shorter races, in which she has often placed 1,2 or 3, or both 1st and last, in age group.  She's been injured and recovered, become a coach, paced for people and been a official pacer for a race, as well as other volunteering for various Club races.  Now she figures it's time to "pay my dues", starting her first year of service on the Board, to pay back for all she have gotten out of this wonderful sport and Club. In her "real" life, she's a financial planner and investment advisor/broker, with, oddly enough, previous professional experience in international affairs.  She's served on a number of non-profit boards, including as Treasurer and then President of the local swim club and also on the board of a figure skating club.  She hopes some of these experiences can help MCRRC too.  Living in Bethesda with her non-running husband, Gretchen is a representative of the down-county contingent in the club.
