Runner Stories

Marty and Belen, who are three (3) times as awesome – they’re triathletes! You will find them riding on Cinco Ranch Blvd. at 4 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays; you will see them on their “brick runs” on Peek Rd.; you’ll also see them casually swimming a million yards before breakfast. Most impressively, you’ll witness the couple conquering the miles and yards together in love. How special is that?

Joy, the shoe fitter extraordinaire at the one and only GTRC!

Young, fit, strong, family man and brand ambassador are among the many words that can describe Carlos Rhor.

Jen Dumas is no stranger in the Katy running community. You probably already know her by her bright smiles, easy manners, and fun-loving

Beejal Patel joined KARC in June 2021 with the hopes of finding a group to train with to run a full marathon. Ever since she ran her first half marathon in 2009, she added running a full marathon to her bucket list.

I hated running, yet I spent the majority of my childhood and a good portion of adulthood running. I can hardly remember a time when running was not part of my life growing up in Beirut, Lebanon. Running to shelters.

Hi! I just want to say thank you all for letting me run with you fine folk! Next week [October 31, 2021] will be my first race back since being diagnosed with lymphoma (blood cancer) in June 2020 and officially in remission on January 2021.

All these crazy conversations, encouragement, and countless group runs with my fellow Cougars and Falcons friends, made me achieve my goals! I just ran my first Boston Marathon with this fun group, and it made me believe that even a couch potato can be a Boston marathoner! Thank you KARC!!!

I am happier and healthier, both physically and mentally, than I think I have ever been, and I have running and my Maverick friends with KARC to thank for that. I am hoping to line up at the 2022 Chevron Houston Marathon alongside many of them and hope that they know how much I appreciate them and how they motivate me constantly.
