FAMILY MEMBER SPOTLIGHT
Tuscaloosa Track Club has a lot of individual members, but we also have a lot of family memberships. Sometimes you have a husband and wife that actually enjoys running together. TTC has been lucky enough to have a couple that has been members for many years, and they don’t even reside in Tuscaloosa.
I’d like you to meet Allen and Wanda Rowland from Jasper, Alabama. Allen and Wanda have been married for 45 years. They met at the University of Alabama in 1969. Even though they reside in Jasper, they keep a tailgate apartment in Tuscaloosa, which allows them to run in many of our races, as well as volunteer for some too.
It was a great Turkey Trot on Saturday, November 18. We had 195 finishers, and for 2018, we already have 282 Members!!! Woo Hoo!
If you pre-registered, your 2018 Membership Cards were in your Race Packets. If you registered on Friday or, your 2018 Membership Cards are now at Wagners RunWalk at MidTown. Please go by and pick them up. Also, if you pre-registered and were unable to be at the race , you can pick up your Race Packets at Wagners RunWalk now through . They include your Turkey Trot Tshirt and your TTC Membership Shirt, as well as your Membership Cards. After December 20th , they will NOT be available. So hurry in and pick them up.
Crossing the Finish Line
Wow! It is so hard to believe we are at the end of 2017. It’s time to reflect on the goals we set for ourselves at the beginning of the year, and see if we reached those goals and crossed that finish line. Reflections are great, but now we should focus on looking ahead.
For us, as members of the Tuscaloosa Track Club, we’re counting Grand Prix points and getting those last minute volunteer hours in. For 2017, we closed the year with 286 members, and after Turkey Trot this year, we already have a total of 284 members going into 2018. We usually average 20 members that join throughout the year, so we’re already ahead of the curve for 2018. That’s so exciting knowing our running community continues to grow. I fully expect to have 300 members for 2018!!!!!
