So, things have changed a little around here!
We've been working for a while to bring you a brand new experience on the Track Club site. Some of you may have noticed a link on the old site linking you to the new one. Well, we finally decided to pull the trigger. The new site is built on a modern platform that allows an optimized experience for any device. You can now view races, results, articles, etc all from your computer, tablet, or smartphone (sorry flip phone users!) and get a site that's tailor made for that screen size.
On most of my running days, it should be “Sweatin with the Oldies” because lately that’s what I’m feeling. Welcome to Summer in the South! Roll Tide! After my poor showing at one of my favorite races “Mule Kick 5K” in Gordo, I realized Nelly said it best “It’s Gettin Hot in Here”. So, what better topic for “Tammy’s Two Cents” but Running in the Heat.
I get several magazines for running and also many, many articles on facebook. Just recently, I came upon one concerning warm weather racing tips from Competitor.com. So, the light bulb popped up over my head, and I knew what I needed to share. I totally suffer with this, even more so now that I’ve - let’s say - become more seasoned. I would use the term “mature”, but that term could be questioned by some.
I thought I would use all the songs I could think of, that are related to the heat, to make this more fun, so feel free to sing along.....
The TTC had another great year in 2015!
It was a fun year to be a runner in Tuscaloosa. The traditional races were well attended. We had the improvement to the trails at Hurricane Creek to give runners another great place to run.
The Riverwalk is seeing increased numbers of users from casual beginners to those getting in their speed workouts. The Tuscaloosa Half Marathon continues to grow and has become a destination event for many in the South. The Turkey Trot had more finishers than ever. Our Sokol runs and other group runs have had great attendance at all levels and these runs continue to encourage participation by all.
