To all who trained, raced, PR’d, FINISHED, and competed in yesterday’s half and full marathon. It was a BEAUTIFUL day for a running tour of Houston.

PS. If you would like your race results reported in next week’s email, please reply back.

To all who supported, cheered, encouraged, and provided for the participants. Without such an AMAZING support group, the accomplishments of our runners would not be possible.

Especially thanks to:
·  Susan Cita & Katie Decker for the management of the Hoopla Stations! The familiar BCRR logo was a refreshing sight to many!
·  Sue Leone, Adam Svoboda, Cheryl Verlander, Chuck Bracht, Ivy Martino, and Jim Knievel for hosting an outstanding post-race party! The recovery was better with such good food and company. 


Save the Date for upcoming BCRR events:
·        February Breakfast at The Dunlavy – Sunday, February 7th
·        Trash Pick Up & Family Picnic – Sunday, April 3rd
·        BCRR Spring Awards Banquet – Wednesday, May 25th



We'd like to extend a warm Bayou City welcome to our new members James Tuscany, Binoy Chandy, and Brian Epp. We look forward to seeing you at the next club run or social event.
