A Strong Start to 2017

Late last year, I got a call from HB Wise, who manages the webpage: www.clinesrunningcorner.com.
CRC covers carries columns and race reports in the world of amateur athletics, mostly in north Texas.
He asked if I was interested in writing for CRC. We got together, worked out some details and now I’m freelancing for them.
I’m thrilled to join other fine writers of this webpage, including Fiona Green, webpage founder, Charles Clines, and others.
I’ve turned in my first two reports. In the first, I traveled to Irving and covered the January 15, 2017 Texas Half-Marathon and five mile.
The second was a column I did on Yolanda Holder’s record performance in Glenadale, AZ, in which she beat pedestrienne Amy Howard’s 137 year old standard for the women’s six-day walk.
I’m scheduled for three stories each month. This weekend (January 28), I’m covering the Flannel and Fleece 5k Run in Arlington, TX.
Also, on March 3, I’ve been asked to be a guest on: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/storytellersandscribes
We’ll discuss the pedestriennes, and since March is National Women’s History Month, it should be a good attraction.
2017 is off to a great start.
