January Newsletter
Happy New Year.  We hope that everybody had a safe and enjoyable holiday season.  Now it's time to put all of those new years resolutions into motion and get ready for the upcoming triathlon season.

Our first club event will be our cheering section for the Chevron Houston Marathon and the Aramco Half Marathon.  The plan is to set up the team tent on Allen Parkway at Taft.  Runners from both races will pass through there.  We will have water and a few snacks.

All are welcome as there is  plenty of room to dance and sing and cheer the runners! 

Parking: You can tell the police posted on Dallas at Taft you are here for race club volunteer and they should let you park on Taft. 
Volunteer shifts: 7a - 11a, 9a-12p, 11a-2p (or race ends/pack up tent). Sheila will set up and break down; asking for 1 volunteer to get started and 2-3 per later shifts. 
What to bring:  Weather appropriate attire with layers and any HRTC attire you can wear, chairs or stools to take a rest.  Bring extra snacks and drinks for yourself, noise makers, flags and banners.
Sheila is requesting funny posters for all runners and maybe specific for our club runners. 
If someone can bring a small speaker/music system with an appropriate playlist,  that would be great.
To add to the mix, if an early person can bring a carafe of coffee with a few cups, and a mid shifts bring donuts or holes to pass out to the runners! 
Contact Sheila for more information.
The first club meeting will be a general meeting at 6:30PM on Jan 21st.  Come brag about your previous days race results.  Location is TBD at this time.  Stay tuned to social media and our web page for further details.
