Dick Van Wie - The March 29 Sunday Soup Group run honored long time club member, Dick Van Wie.  Dick has been a trooper all winter long and has been out there run/walking his 3 miles most Sundays, usually alone.  New club member Scott Young came up with the great idea for the group to join Dick for the last official soup group run of the season.  If you didn't know, Dick started running at age 48 and joined TVFR at the request of Larry Olsen.  Some of you may have seen this video before, but back in 2012, Dan Davin did an interview with Dick after one of TVFR's soup group runs. Check it out!
