Catching Kayla

by GTSTRUTTER on November 21, 2014

This is an inspirational story about a runner who doesn’t let her body’s limitations stop her from being a top runner. It’s about 13 minutes long and you’ll love every minute of it. Have a great running weekend and to those running races good luck!!

10748689_10152480897346935_1092092983_nIt’s Globally Organized Hug A Runner Day (G.O. H.A.R.D) and since the GTS run was yesterday we ended up celebrating it a day early.  I arrived at the run a little late and quickly started asking runners who were standing next to each other to hug for a picture, nobody batted an eye. I love how our little running group has become a great running family where everyone hugs each other with such big smiles on their faces. It’s close to Thanksgiving so I’m going to give y’all a list of the top 3 reason’s I’m thankful for all of you Strutters.

3.  Y’all are some serious MOTIVATION!

From the speedies in the front of the pack to the walkers who start early and end a little later. I find motivation from each and every one of y’all.

2.  Your Generosity.

Y’all generously put money into that donation jar that I bring out every so often. Since The GTS group doesn’t take much money to run, as our main cost is cups and gatorade, we donate 90 – 95% of that money into the local running community.  We do this by supporting local races (Gusher, Pleasure Island, and Daisies & Dragons) through sponsorship and also by supporting our future runners in the Sam Houston Fitness Club through monetary donations and gift cards.

1.  Your Friendship.

I’ve gotten to know a lot of y’all through the years and forming close bonds with each of y’all is what I’m most thankful for.

I really do hope that y’all consider the Golden Triangle Strutters group as YOUR running group and are proud to be referred to as STRUTTERS. We may have started this group but it is nothing without the great people that come out to our weekly runs. Thank you so much for coming out.

Now go find a runner and give them a BIG hug!


Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Running.
