“I’m 22 years old and freshly out of the University of Arkansas with a Bachelors in Engineering. I’m primarily a trail runner but am currently training for the BMW Dallas marathon, formerly known as white Rock, for a spicy Boston qualifier. I also mountain bike and rock climb, so if you find yourself in need for another person for either of those activities, please let me know. I have competed in 7 marathon+ distance races in the past year. I’d love to see a larger young community in the trail race circuit in our area. That being said please don’t hesitate to contacted me if you’re interested in learning more about longer distance or running in general.” – Russell

I moved to HS in 2013 not knowing anyone. In 2016, I was going to run my first 5K with the Window Mart team so I went to the Spa Pacers Fall Clinic and fell in love with running and found the best of friends that seem more like family than friends.

The Spa Pacers are one of the nicest, most inspirational, encouraging and inclusive group I have ever had the pleasure to know. Absolutely best of the best people.

There is absolutely no group that I have ever been a part of that is more encouraging and supportive than the Spa Pacers. Whether you are a walker or a runner, fast or slow, you are welcomed and encouraged to participate. I love the Spa Pacers!
