Hey everyone, I’m a senior biology major from Keller, TX. In middle and high school, I ran competitively on the cross country and track teams. Since then, I’ve started running marathons. During my first year at UT, I found a very friendly and supportive community in TRC. Since joining the club, I’ve come to enjoy running more than ever before. In addition to running, I also like to lift weights, play video games, and watch wildlife documentaries. I’m currently training for the 2023 San Antonio Rock n’ Roll Marathon. I hope to see you all at Greg for our group runs!

Hey y’all, I’m a Junior Psychology major from Denton, TX and I’m so excited to serve as your Secretary this year! My running journey started in my elementary school’s running club (yes, top-tier competition) and has been an important part of my life ever since. Over the last 10 years, I have done a lot of 5ks, competitive XC/track races, and will be running my first Spartan race this fall. Outside of running, I love reading, traveling, going to concerts, doing all IM sports, and really anything that involves hanging out with friends! My running goal for this year is to have fun while running and complete my first official half marathon.
Ok here: hey y’all I’m Lauren, a junior bio major from Houston Texas!! I’ve loved running since middle school, ran cross country and track through high school, and now run with TRC and Railroad. I enjoy competing in the Austin race scene and am excited for what this year brings!! Other than running you can find me baking cookies or fresh bread, or in the lab studying my cells! My goal for the year is to set some 5k and 6k prs and to meet some new running buddies!
I’ve ran the Austin marathon and hope to run the Houston marathon next year and possibly qualify for the Boston marathon.
Hi! I’m Bucky, I’m from Dripping Springs, and I’ll be TRC’s media coordinator this year! I’m a senior English major on a pre-med track. I started running in high school and never looked back. I would say my most impressive running achievement is having completed a marathon with my furthest mileage only having been six miles up until then. My new goal is to eventually complete a marathon WITH the proper distance training. Fun fact about me, I run my own freelance photography side-hustle where I get to take pictures of some of the coolest people around Texas!!
Hey y’all! I’m a junior mathematics major from Cedar Park, TX. I started running during the pandemic and haven’t stopped since. I have always been a tennis player, but I picked up running just to be outside and get some exercise. I’ve grown to love this sport and all the friends that I have made since joining TRC. My goal this year is to break my half-marathon time and potentially run the Houston Marathon. You can also catch me hiking, biking, and swimming around Austin!
Hey everyone! My name is Carlos Barcenas, and I’ll be one of your running captains for the school year. I’m a senior studying civil engineering from Willis, Texas. I’ve been running since middle school and competed in both cross country and track. I joined TRC my sophomore year and it has been such an awesome experience! My goal for this year is to run a personal best half at Houston and try to have as much fun during the training process. Can’t wait to meet y’all!
I joined a running club my freshmen year of high school and struggled to run 2 miles but was persistent and really fell in love with the sport. Outside of some really fun experiences within TRC, some of my most memorable running experiences have been running the steeplechase at Junior Olympics and running my own marathon during Covid. This semester, I’ll be training for the Austin Marathon in February and doing my best to stay healthy and injury free! I‘m excited to train with friends and meet new runners within the club!!
Hey everyone, I’m a junior Economics and Plan II major from Las Vegas. I started running cross country and track in high school after I never grew any taller for basketball. After spending freshman year back home and taking a year off of running, I joined TRC last year and started running again while making some really close friends. Outside of running, I like to play poker in hopes of pursuing the totally unrealistic dream of making it a full-time career. My goals for this year are to run an outdoor 5000m, chase some PRs, and keep running fun while doing so.
