Well HATRs – it’s hard to believe it is already May! It’s starting to feel like summer, but that hasn’t stopped us from hitting the trails in force! It was a great month for the HATRs in April. We had a number of folks run Hells Hills 50 as well as Brazos Bend 50 and put on some very strong performances. We are currently the 5th place club in the Texas Trail Chmapionship Series and the 2nd place club in the TROT Cup. Keep hitting those races and keep killing it!
As for the 2nd half of April, the weather didn’t always cooperate and we ended up having to get creative with our group runs. With the trails in rough shape, we had a group do some hill training on the only hills you can find in Houston – a parking garage. Outside of running, our Social Director Carmen Martinez scheduled our first of many HATR happy hours…hopefully you can catch the next one on May 25th (see side-bar for details)!
May will continue to be a busy month as well. Many of us will run Wildflower Half, Paleface or Texas Treasure Quest. As always we will have our normal Saturday group runs as well (with the good weather the trails should be drying out!). We will have a good group participate in the Wings for Life Run Houston on May 8th at Memorial Park (see side-bar for details). Lastly – stay plugged in with the FB page so you know the latest status of group runs and any upcoming social events.
See ya’ll on the trails!
