This is my fourth year with RHC and my first year as a Coach and I’m ecstatic! I had been running off and on since 2009 with a local pub club but never anything serious until one day in the summer of 2017, one of my good friends, Pattie, who is also a runner suggested that I join RHC so I can train for a race with a group. I laughed and replied, “No, that’s not me. I don’t run races; I just run for fun.” On Global Running Day in 2017, I signed up for the Aramco Half Marathon and joined RHC for the fall 2017 training season. From the first group run with Coach Chris’ 2:30 half group, I was hooked! I returned to RHC the following year and during the 2019 Aramco Half-Marathon, at the split for the full marathon, I was very jealous that I wasn’t continuing with the full marathoners. As I kept running, I promised myself that I would sign up for the 2020 Chevron Houston Marathon and as soon as I returned home, I made my commitment. I completed my first full marathon in January of 2020 and I’m SO glad I did! Not only has RHC given me amazing friends to train with and run races with, but it’s also given me a sense of family and purpose. My life has completely changed after joining RHC. Running is my therapy, it’s my haven, and now, it’s my lifestyle.
