MEDIA COMMENTS ABOUT ANTHONY REED
“Through the years, Reed has found that many lessons learned along the race course don’t differ much from corporate America’s hills and valleys.” – National BMBA Magazine.
“Anthony Reed hasn’t stopped running since. He ran while earning his MBA, master’s of accounting, and CPA certification. And he kept going while working as an Information Technology Director at Texas Instruments, heading up his own consulting business, and teaching college accounting courses.” – Runner’s World magazine.
“Running has transformed Anthony Reed’s life. He simply set goals and set about accomplishing them.” – Dallas Morning News.
“Reed fits the profile—some would say stereotype—of a distance runner. He’s an over achiever at work and play. He has earned four degrees, is a CPA, and a certified Project Management Professional.” – St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
“How far can one man run? If Anthony Reed is the man, all over the world is the answer. He has run across a glacier in Antarctica and along the Great Wall of China.” – Southern Living magazine.
“Reed manages the risks of business and sport with determination and a commitment to life long learning…Risk management is a concept Reed applies to very different areas of his life. He said the process is similar for a marathoner and businessperson.” – University of Texas at Dallas’ Mercury.
