The Red Ledger: Do you have any pre-meet rituals?

Brady Laboret: Before a run the whole team huddles together and we do a team prayer.

BL: It really started when my brother joined, and we are really competitive, so I decided to run just to kind of show him up.

TRL: Do you want to run after high school?
