If you are ready to start moving toward the finish line of your first 5K (or maybe your 1st in a long time), this is the group for you! We will slowly work our way from walking to running to crossing the finish line!

We will have 2 training programs per year, each lasting 11 weeks and culminating in a graduation 5K race.

We will be meeting every Saturday morning at 7 a.m. for our group run.  Along with our Saturday runs you will need to complete the other scheduled workouts during the week to help you achieve your goals.

You CAN do it!

Many thanks to our volunteer coaches who will offer inspiration, advice, and distraction on our weekly Saturday workouts!

I joined CRC about 1 ½ years ago. With all the training and support I had during that time, I was able to run my first 10K, and my first 13.1 (½ marathon)! I have also made some pretty good friends along the way. I joined with a friend of mine at the last minute and started the NMEto5K (No More Excuses) training. I only joined so I could get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle. Now I am looking forward to my next ½ marathon in November. I started coaching the NME last fall and I can not wait for the next season to start. When I am not running, I am a sign language interpreter at CFISD. My husband Phil and I have 2 sons – Lance (19) and Nathan (12). Lance is attending college at Lone Star and Nathan keeps us very busy with his baseball schedule. Now that you know me, come join me and all the other fresh new faces, Saturday mornings as we train for your first (or next) 5K!!
