Our Coaches

Ed Lyon

Assistant Coach - Blue Group

Hello my name is Ed Lyon and my job is to get everyone in the group to finish the Houston Marathon. You will run places that you have not run before.  You ask what has this person done as far as running.  I have done 11 marathons 4 half marathons and numerous  smaller runs. I am the one that makes sure everyone has made it in on Saturdays run safely.  I am unusually in the back.  This will be my 12th Marathon and we are going to enjoy every mile of it.
I live in League City, Married 34 years to Deb and one son Chris. So RUN LONG RUN STRONG.


Cortney Bell

Assistant Coach - Blue Group

I began running in 2013. I had never really run before in my life. I wasn’t the athletic kid in school, I was the band kid. My husband (the tall guy) told me that he really wanted to run to get into shape, so, wanting to be supportive, I told him I would run with him. We began running on our own and I could only go a block or two before I had to stop and catch my breath. Great support I was! We joined BAF and little by little I was able to run further without having to stop and before long I had ran a mile! I have since ran 3 half marathons and various 5k and 10k. I am so glad to be able to return to the support I received starting out in blue group!
