Pam Reed

Pam Reed, right, and her friend Holly Balogh go for a run along the pathway south of Jackson on Monday afternoon. Reed plans to run across America in February in an attempt to break a 38-year-old speed record while raising awareness for an illness that hasn’t been able to slow her down.

On Sept. 24 Pam Reed completed her 51st Ironman triathlon, taking first place in the women’s 55-59 division at Ironman Chattanooga.

Ironmans, though, aren’t Reed’s forte.
