My name is Alex Dantzler, and I am a junior in chemical engineering from Houston, TX. I will be your volunteer chair for the coming year. I ran cross country and track at Cy-Ridge high school for four years, but now I have laid back the pace and focused on the more important aspects of running-- community and camaraderie. In order to build our community and strengthen our camaraderie, we will get the chance to volunteer our time and (boundless) energy to a variety of service events throughout the year. Please, come out and help us support all of those around us that need a helping hand. Whether it's providing food to a family in need or it's cheering on your friend through a grueling 7 mile run they swore to never do, YOU can be a catalyst for good with running club.
I once quit soccer because I thought it was too much running, and I was the goalie! Somehow, 4 years later I picked up distance running and haven't stopped since. I'm a third year biomedical engineering major at UT who's trying to get into medical school (lol @ me), and I've been with TRC since day 1 of college. After running track and cross country in high school, I've run 3 half marathons, 1 full marathon, 1 Capital to Coast Relay, and 2 Texas Independence Relays. My goal for this year is to qualify for Boston, and my favorite pass time is trying to ignore all the work I need to do for school.
I’m Liz Moczygemba, and I’m your treasurer for the 2017-2018 school year! I’m a sophomore Accounting major from a small town nobody ever knows about called La Vernia, TX. Before hitting the 40 acres, I got into running in high school. While there, I ran varsity cross country and track as I didn’t have the hand-eye coordination necessary for any other sport. I’ve yet to tackle a half marathon, but I’m up for the challenge. So, if you want to keep me company for 13.1 miles, let me know! Outside of running, I religiously watch the old show Survivor (if you don’t remember it, you’re missing out), and I’ll jam with you to practically any country song on the radio since I know almost all of them.
Hey my name is Hannah VanEgmond and I'm one of the three running captains for the 2017-2018 school year. I'm a second year Business major from Friendswood, Texas. I started running cross country in 7th grade and ran competitively for my high school all four years. I joined the track team my sophomore year of high school but let's be real, running fast is hard so that didn't work out. I am always down to run 5ks or 10ks... but most likely just the 5ks. My goal for this year is to complete my first half marathon so prayers plz. Besides running, I enjoy playing guitar, eating fried chicken, and doing all those basic Austin-y things.
My name is Kausthub "Kau" (like moo) Poondi, and I am the TRC webmaster. I am a senior in Computer Engineering from Plano, Texas. I was an orchestra kid all of high school, but I decided to quit that life and start running in college. My running goal this year is to not get injured (yes, I am serious). Outside of running, you'll probably find me in the EER. My goal is to make this website a great resource for potential club members and actives, so let me know if you have any suggestions, and I will try to make it happen! Also that^^ picture of me is probably the coolest I will every look my entire life. I peaked in that picture.
