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.

Houston Chronicle - Running notebook - Psych up before training and race day

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.
