Hi Y’all,
Sorry, it’s been busy for me at work and I don’t have much to report. It’s another long run Saturday so get out there and run with someone.
Please sign up to attend our annual PARR-ty. It’s a great event and I guarantee you’ll have fun. Please don’t be discouraged if you haven’t had a chance to meet many people this year or aren’t great around people you may not know well. Our members are welcoming and friendly so please join us.

Congratulations to the runners finishing the BCS Marathon and to Paul Aleshire for finishing 3rd AG and Daniel Imreke, 3rd AG.
This week, we’ll have members participating in the Fort Bend 30k in Sugar Land and probably a whole bunch of you participating in the Santa Hustle 5k & Half Marathon in Galveston. It looks like you’ll have good weather on Sunday so enjoy and have a great race.
Feel like getting festive and silly? Who doesn’t like to have fun and laughs? 😀 On Friday Dec 21st @ 5am let’s get into the holiday spirit by having a silly fun 5K run together. Wear your pajamas, ugly sweater, Christmas Costumes, whatever suits you (the sillier the better) and come run for fun!! We’ll meet at the PB at 5am to bring in the holiday doing what we do best ? (need to run more than 5K? start earlier? Or tack on a bit after the fun 5K? Just hope that as many of you who are in town can make it!!)
