DECEMBER IS ALMOST HERE
BIG MONTH, BIG RACES and OUR ANNIVERSARY
Where do i begin without writing a novel on all of this? Who remembers last year around this time our meeting at Ruggles.. We said then that we would push the Houston Trail Running Scene to new limits…. We put on the BB50, we invaded a Volcano and here we stand 2 weeks away from the LARGEST FIRST YEAR ULTRA IN TEXAS… Add to all that Larrys Hiking Magazine, We are in 3rd place in both categories Texas Trail Championship and the club gets bigger weekly..
We as a club have done exactly what we have set out to do.. Promote trail running, have run racing and give back to the community. I thank you all for being part of the puzzle that makes us the HATRs…
So here we go for December.. Ill make it quick as I can..
Derrick Lytle has uploaded some pics https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ctob7yl5ffzuoqh/AAAXOIdQkblrazMux1HHohEGa?dl=0 from his time here. He has some more along the way and he is making a video for us as well.
Dec 13th.. Brazos Bend 100.. We get it ROB…….Well its the PARTY of the century… You should be there either running (www.brazosbend100.com ) or volunteering.. I think we need like 2 shifts covered so if you can please email email@example.com But its the BIG ONE so i cant wait to manage this BEA$T and watch yall run. Some of my BEST FRIENDS are buckle bound and I am so proud.
Dec 17th is our club anniversary and larrys 30 for 30 is going to be that thursday so lets try and get some feedback on a social either the 20th or 21st… Email me or answer in facebook but its time to celebrate the year and the tomfoolery will be there. maybe a costume party for no reason.. maybe a super hero party.. lets do it big… mark kenney break dancing? Jose showing up on time?? too far…
Dec 30-Jan 1 is the Snowdrop 55 hour race.. Last year Jose and I ran this .75 mile loop what felt like 200x… But we got our mileage and our buckles.. The best part was seeing all of the hatr family for 2 days while we ran. I will be back out there with maybe some other jerms, mark k and well be going round and round.. Please come out and see us and support he snowdrop foundation if you can.
But its a wonderful time of year here in Houston. Gets a little cold, gets fun to run and its Buckle hunting season in ultras.. I cant wait to see all of you over the next few months as always and watch you line up at the BB100. I cant wait to see some of you break through your own thresholds and do something that is Amazing on those days.. I cant wait to celebrate with you all for the party and then see you when i run… I cannot tell you how much joy is in my heart for december to begin….
Thank you all for being members of the HATR NATION.. we are all pieces to a beautiful puzzle that is the Houston Area Trail Runners.
