Welcome to Running Across Texas
Texas is not only one of the largest states in the union, its also one of the fittest. Running, cycling, rollerblading, weve got the weather and space to make it all happen. At a time when the nation is wallowing in economic woes, Texas continues to be business-friendly. Jobs mean money, and money means leisure activities, and that means running.
This site is dedicated to making sense of all the running events and providing informative articles dealing with training strategies, nutrition, and sports medicine. While we try to cover as many races as possible, we cant be everywhere. Please send race reports and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
