Houston has a ton of great, off-road trails to run. Trail running is awesome in the summer because it is always cooler on the trails and in the winter it can be less windy and blustery. Trail running is great cross-training and just fun to do! Come join us on a trail or two.
At the time when Wall Street fat cats were rolling large in their H2 Hummers drinking $1000 bottles of blue colored rapper concoctions late into the wee hours of the evening (think late 2000's), I was out. As in going to bed early so I could get up at 5am on Sat to go running. Started off running around the neighborhood. Remember when running the two mile loop without walking was a huge emotional breakthrough for me? That and physically breaking that barrier. I was then running free/wild all over Houston! I have since been running in the Houston Marathon (3 times), multiple Half Marathons, 25k's, the Warrior Dash, and the Spartan Race. Also, in January 2011, I just ran and finished the Big Bend Ultra 50k (31.06 miles)! I'm done running marathon distances on concrete, instead transitioning from concrete to trails. I have a super secret location of virgin trails waiting to be discovered, tracked, and conquered…who's ready to go?
