2015 The Woodlands Marathon Speaker Series Schedule


It is that time of year again: the fourth annual The Woodlands Marathon.

For those of you running in, volunteering for, working on the race committee or just out cheering on athletes and teammates at one of the affiliated events next weekend, thank you for all that you do.

I ask very little, but my request is to take into consideration and share with your athletes and/or teammates this year's schedule to our annual Speaker Series, which is sponsored by The Woodlands Marathon Management. And then attend!

We've wrapped up our schedule much earlier this year to get the word out on what we've got going on next Thursday and Friday.

Intriqued about Badwater? Come Friday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.

Want to hear from an Olympic bronze medalist in our sport? Come a little earlier at 2:15 p.m. - and bring some money with you to buy Coach Al's new book. :-)

(For those of you who may not know, Al Lawrence used to coach Dan Green.)

Know an athlete that needs to get back in the game? Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. may be most to their liking.

There's something for everybody - racing tips from Finish Strong Coaching, injury prevention from CHI St. Luke's Health, youth running, inspiring charity stories and a 2015 Grammy winner at our opening ceremony at 11 a.m. on Friday.

And we may have an update on Trails development in The Woodlands, but that's not confirmed yet. (If so, it would be at 10:15 a.m. on Friday morning.)

I'll also be hosting an Internet Radio Marathon Preview show from the stage from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday. You can listen on your computer at or download the free TSRN Sports app at the Apple Store or Google Play and tune in on your smartphone.

And if all of that isn't enough to entice you, attendance at each session can pay off in the form of a 2016 entry to the marathon, half marathon, 5K or 2K.

Thanks again for all you all do in our communities here in The Woodlands and Montgomery County.
