Fall 2014 Race Announcing Schedule

A lot of people will ask me "Are you announcing such-and-such race?" or "What's coming up next for you?"  Honestly, I'm glad - and flattered - that people care.

I was pretty busy this past spring and the fall is shaping up to be much of the same.

I'm very thankful that I get to do what I do to in helping race directors communicate effectively, get events started on-time and orderly and celebrating athlete's achievements at the finish line and - in some cases - during post-race awards.

Two new things that I'll get to do this fall are to announce 1.) an out-of-state race [Florida10 Lakeland] and 2.) a Marathon Warm-Up Series race [the Finish Line Sports Sugar Land 30K].

And there's one more major event - to me - that I'm hoping that will come to fruition.

In the meantime, though, here's where I'm going to be this fall:

 9/ 6 (Sat.) - Galveston Sand Crab 10K and 5K (Bill Gardner)
 9/20 (Sat.) - Toughest 10K Kemah (Robby Sabban)
10/ 3 (Fri.) - Nike South Cross Country, The Woodlands (Juris Green)
10/ 4 (Sat.) - Nike South Cross Country, The Woodlands (Juris Green)
10/11 (Sat.) - Methodist Mansfield Run With Heart Half Marathon (Raul and Meghan Najera)
10/12 (Sun.) - Texas10 Fort Worth (Willie Fowlkes)
10/18 (Sat.) - Toughest 10K Galveston (Robby Sabban)
10/19 (Sun.) - Florida10 Lakeland (Willie Fowlkes)
11/ 2 (Sun.) - Texas10 Katy (Willie Fowlkes)
11/ 8 (Sat.) - Pleasure Island Bridge Half Marathon, 10K and 2M, Port Arthur (Richard and Amie James)
11/16 (Sun.) - La Porte By The Bay Half Marathon (Robby Sabban)
11/22 (Sat.) - Nike Cross Regionals Cross Country, The Woodlands (Juris Green)
12/ 7 (Sun.) - Texas10 Conroe (Willie Fowlkes)
12/14 (Sun.) - Finish Line Sports Sugar Land 30K (Andy Stewart)

I certainly hope that I get to see many of you at one or more of these races the remainder of 2014.
