Pam Reed covers so much ground we almost couldn't catch up with her for a closeup...
...but she stopped long enough to give a talk at the Volvo Sports Design Forum.
Pam Reed is an ultramarathoner, running distances most people don't even like to drive. Her book choices reveal a deep interest in people who have undertaken major challenges and adventures, from stranded explorers to mountain climbers. Well, and Dr. Laura, too.
