Important Volunteer Opportunity!!!
I recently went to the see “The Secret Life of Pets” at the Cobb 16 Theaters in Tuscaloosa. I know what you’re saying, really a cartoon. And my response - Roll Tide! So, Istarted to think about how Runner’s compare to all the different animals in the movie. Whether you go for a long run with your friends, or you’re at a 5K or 10K race, you get all kinds of personalities, running styles, running advice, eating advice.... so let’s have a little fun.
There are certain people you “run” across in life that you instantly admire and know that they will be a constant and be consistent with who they are as long as you know them. Tammy Denson is one of those wonderful folks. She is who she is and you just know you can always
count on her, whether it is showing up for a workout or as director of one of the largest running events in Tuscaloosa. Tammy always has a supportive word for the slowest to the swiftest runners at a gathering, probably more so for the slowest of us. The running community in Tuscaloosa is very fortunate to have Tammy as an avid supporter, resource, role model and
organizer. It takes a strong person to be the backbone of a community and my friend Tammy is one of the strongest I have ever met.
I asked her to capsulize her running career and give some advice from her vast experience which can help us all train better and enjoy our running to the utmost.
