MR54: Finally, I was able to catch up with the Birmingham Trail Runners parent, friend, mentor, race director, and more – David Tosch. David is very busy year around to setup trail racing events, planning races, running, training, and more. David and Marye Jo Tosch founded the Southeastern Trail Runs – southeasterntrailruns.com, which has been great asset to the Birmingham Trail running community. David has helped to put the Southeastern trail running on the map with many races including Birmingham Stage race, Lake Martin 100, Blood Rock, and more.
Personally, David has been great friend, mentor, and inspiration to me. David did not put me in trail, but he kept me in trail. With the start of 5th Southeastern Trail Series this week, I can say that I also grew as trail runner with series. I cannot thank enough for all love, care, encouragements, and support that I get from David and Marye Jo Tosch.
