Mo Reeves, President
Prior to becoming a runner in her 30s, Mo described herself as non-athletic. In fact, she was the slowest student in her class to complete the mile for multiple years in elementary PE as she begrudgingly meandered around the track. Now she is a proud pack-of-the-pack trail ultra runner, still finishing DFL but enjoying every mile.
She has lived in Texas since 2012 and therefore considers herself to be a Texan. Growing up in Colorado, however, instilled in her a love for the outdoors and natural spaces. Imagine her delight when she discovered the DORBA trails after literal years of lamenting that Dallas didn’t have the natural spaces she craved.
When not on the trails, Mo is the web content specialist for A&M-Commerce and a part-time race photographer throughout Texas. She lives in Garland with her dogs, cat, and husband.
Lee Ann Rayburn, Vice President/Treasurer
If you asked her mother, Lee Ann has been running since she took her first steps. Growing up between the mountains just north of Alamogordo, NM and the countryside of rural SE Oklahoma, hiking and exploring the outdoors was a huge part of her childhood. In High School she discovered track, then throughout college and afterwards continued road running and hiking for fun. However, it wasn’t until she moved to Texas in 2011 that she discovered the running community.
At first it was just road running, quickly going from her first 5K in June 2012 to the Little Rock Marathon in March 2013. Within that timespan, she was introduced to trail running, running her first half marathon at a race on the Green Belt Trail. Even in the face of adversity, after shattering her ankle during a race in 2015, she hasn’t turned back to the road. If you want to know about any trail around the Denton area… DORBA, equestrian, or otherwise, she’s your girl.
When not running and hiking, Lee Ann is a Graduate Program Coordinator at UT Southwestern. She is as passionate about helping her students succeed as she is about running. She recently moved to Lewisville from Denton, but is excited to be closer to the Northshore and Horseshoe trails and to have a paved walking/running path just outside her front door.
