The Woodlands Running Club (TWRC) is a non-profit running club located in The Woodlands Texas, just North of Houston for runners of all abilities. If you are looking for track workouts, long runs, marathon training, 5Ks, fun runs & social events, trail running and running trips, you have found the right place.
TWRC promotes the running community in many ways, including hosting club runs, open social runs, races, and social events; engaging in community and charitable activities; and encouraging younger runners through our scholarship fund.
It is already June and time for our annual membership renewal. We will be having a general membership meeting/social at Rico's in Alden Bridge on Sunday, June 23 at 5:30 pm.
Now is the time to renew your TWRC membership. All members can renew and update their membership information via our website. As an added incentive, we will be holding a drawing at Rico's for some prizes for those who have renewed or joined PRIOR to the meeting. Just as a reminder, if you have not renewed your membership since April 1, 2013, it will expire at the end of June.
If you are a part of the TWRC Juniors program, all details for registration can be found under the Juniors tab on the website. All Juniors must be a 2013-14 member of The Woodlands Running Club.

Post Race message from Kathleen
I want to thank all the members who volunteered at our aid station and in any other capacity during Saturday's Ironman. We hear it over and over again how an event like this can't happen without volunteers, but it is so true. It's great that we could be a part of it. Special thanks goes out to Randy Bradley for once again organizing and directing Run Station #6. And of course, congratulations to everyone who participated in the event.
Registration is open. The Woodlands Marathon is offering a Tax Day discount code on early registration fee. Make sure you register before midnight Moday on April 15th and save $5.

Running notebook: Psych up before training and race day
By Roberta MacInnis | February 27, 2013 | Updated: February 27, 2013 6:51pm
Train hard, race fast. It seems like a simple equation.
But runners who do the physical work without exercising their mental skills may not be performing as well as they could.
This holds true not only for serious competitors but for recreational runners, who are increasingly incorporating sports psychology into their training routines.

Woodlands runners Geri Henry and Tony Allison began running years apart for different reasons, but the two friends recently completed a significant achievement together: they’ve run a marathon in all 50 states.
The friends completed the accomplishment and joined the “50 States Marathon Club” Nov.18 when they completed the Philadelphia Marathon.
“I was so elated. I felt like I had accomplished something,” Henry said.
