Team Born to Run #lawyerology

Team Born to Run #lawyerology

Though Team Born to Run seems a fascinating hodgepodge of personality and life experience, Greg created the team with intention. “I wanted to put together a diverse group. Boy did we get that!” He laughs, then continues, “I wanted the team to have the youngest-ever person to do the 4 Deserts Grand Slam. That’s Matt. Then I figured why not have the oldest? So next we found Ron. Of course we should have a woman, and Jess was recommended to us as a tough Sydney ultrarunner. And, when I asked if Jess had any connection to someone with Type 1, she volunteered that her runner boyfriend did. Our team would not be a team without a member who had diabetes, so Roger was a perfect fit. No one with Type 1 had yet done the grand slam, and neither had a couple.” The stage was set for an epic and record-setting around-the-world adventure.
