About Me

  • Running club(s):

    Wichita Falls Running Club

  • Rave race:

    Cowtown Marathon

  • Race that's calling my name:
  • I run because:

    I like chocolate & beer.  I used to be(and still am) a soccer fanatic/player.  I played 6 days a week.  When I moved to my current town, there was no where for me to play.  Running was my only choice for exercise.  I now kill 2 birds by listening to books while I run.  (I love to read as well)  With running, I can still enjoy my life, slightly fill the void the lack of soccer created, & my clothes will still fit!

Nice race. Usually the same route. they switched it up this year. They also decided not to time it this year. Enjoyed the green beer afterwards provided by Wichita Falls Brewery! Only downfall is you never know quite the distance you will be running.

The course was nice and hilly through a lovely neighborhood. The swag was wonderful. I got 3rd in my age group & received a really cool pint glass! I enjoyed this race & plan on doing it again next year.

This was a nice race to run. There were 5 of us that participated. The only major complaints I have, are that the people handing out that shirts gave one of our men a women’s shirt & our times didn’t get put in the results until 4 days after the event! There were other people this happened to as well. I noticed the 3rd place finisher in my age was not the same as when they handed out medals. Be sure to check your time if you think you finished well. The swag was good & the after party was also nice. Lots of vendors and people from other races. I would run this again. It was a fairly flat, fast course with nice scenery.

This was a fun run for a good cause. The run & course were nice & easy. The wind was horrible!! Half of the race was run into a 20-30 mph wind. It did make the color run part of the race interesting as well. I will try this again next year for sure.

The race was better put on this year. They did forget one critical thing for after the race….WATER. They had plenty of beer for the runners, but no water. Kind of amusing, yet I really needed a nice quenching bottle after the run. The scenery is always nice and the start finish is always at a good place. The yard has plenty of seating & standing room for everyone. The DJ was fabulous, as he always is. Will be participating again next year!

I did this as a nice run/walk warm-up for the half marathon on Sunday. It is a great course. Not very challenging. There are quite a few people that run this race, so there are times/places that it will seem crowded. They had great cheerleaders along the way. This race is set up and put on very well. They are extremely organized and weather conscious(it happened to be storming this day). I will definitely do this again!

This is a wonderful race weekend to compete in. I ran the 5k & the half. Both races had great scenery & challenging courses. The half had wonderful bands & great cheerleaders the whole way. The expo was very nice and well organized. Packet pick-up was a breeze. I only wish they had not run out of Cowtown Challenge bibs. I am excited to participate in this event next year!

This race has a beautiful course in a park around a lake. It was fun & easy to run. I loved the scenery & that made the running all the better. The packet pick up was well organized and all the volunteers were so kind. They had some great cheerleaders along the way. Not a ton of people so I never felt crowded. The race was held in conjunction with a Health fair. There were quite a few vendors and things to peruse through after the race. I will definitely run this again. It was definitely worth the couple hour drive to get to it. This race also encourages groups to run. There were quite a few groups that had young runners with them. Great as a training race for them.

This is a good race to run. They have great swag which helps make up for the insanity of trying to pick up your packet. That took waaaaaaaay too long. Hopefully it is more organized next year. the course is nice and easy to run. The scenery is not too shabby. I ran it with my hubby so it was slower than my usual pace, but I still enjoyed it.

This is a great fun run. You do a mile, drink a beer, do a mile, drink a beer, do a mile, drink a beer, then get to cross the finish line. It’s a nice easy course to run around the fine arts center. I really enjoyed it & would love to do it again.
