Officers

Ryan Gerety
President
Hey everyone, I'm a junior 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 unconventional 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 enjoy lifting weights, playing video games, and watching wildlife documentaries. I’m currently training for the 2023 Houston Marathon where I hope to break the three hour barrier for the distance.
Daniel Sauceda
Vice President

Hey everyone! I’m a senior biomedical engineering major from Cypress, TX. I’ve been running since middle school, but since joining TRC my freshman year, I’ve come to enjoy running more and more, and I’m grateful for all the amazing people I’ve met in the process. Outside of running club, I enjoy reading, hiking, and finding new places to eat around Austin. I also volunteer at a hospital in my spare time. My goal for this year is to run my first marathon!

Hana Bredstein
Treasurer

Hey y'all! I'm Hana, and I'm a senior international relations major from New Hampshire. I ran track and XC in high school (let's hear it for JV!) and have completed two halves and one full marathon. I'm excited for another great year of running with TRC friends new and old, and hope to cross the finish line at the Austin Marathon in February. Outside of running, I enjoy hiking, traveling, and building puzzles.

Hannah Wilson
Secretary

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.

Lauren Ohler
Volunteer Chair

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!

Mini Mahmood
Social Chair

Hey I’m mini! I’m a senior chemistry major from Conroe TX. I ran cross country and track in middle school and high school and have loved continuing it into college with running club. I’ve ran multiple half marathons and 1 marathon and look forward to running more! I’ve made so many amazing life long friends in running club, it has truly been the highlight of my college years.

Andrew Erdman
Media Coordinator

Hey guys! My name is Andrew Erdman and I’m a third year physics major. I spent pretty much all of my free time making movies, so if you ever want to be in one or got a pitch- let me know. I grew up here in Austin Texas and ran throughout middle school and college. A goal that I have for myself it to run a half marathon some point this year. I’ll see y’all around.

Caroline Frenzel
Running Captain

I'm a senior Kinesiology major, with the goal of going to Physical Therapy school after graduation. I've been running since middle school and have run 5 marathons and a couple ultras since! I love trail running, so you can always find me on uneven terrain for long runs. This year I look forward to leading new routes and helping others reach their race goals!

Carlos Barcenas
Running Captain

Hey everyone! My name is Carlos Barcenas, and I’ll be one of your running captains for the 2022-2023 school year. I’m a third year civil engineering major from Willis, Texas. I’ve been running since middle school and competed in both track and cross country. I joined TRC my sophomore year and it has been such a 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!

Nick Webb
Running Captain
Hey everyone! I’m a junior Management Information Systems and Computer Science major from Dallas, TX. I didn’t run in high school, but I’ve been running since my freshman year of college. Since joining TRC, I’ve really come to enjoy running a lot more and love meeting new running buddies. Just this summer I ran my first half marathon in Stillwater, Minnesota and this year I hope to compete in a triathlon and my first marathon! Outside of running, I enjoy swing dancing, reading, backpacking, and traveling.
EJ Porras
Track Coach

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.

Nathaniel Gregory
Track Coach

Hey guys I’m Nathaniel Gregory, your Track Tuesday sprint coach for this year and I’m very excited! I am a junior Environmental Science major from Bastrop, Texas with a minor in geography and geology. I chose to run XC in high school on a whim to train for track and fell in love with it. In track I ran the 400m, 4x400, and 800m and still have a love for sprint events to this day (even though nothing can top xc). I have run 5 half marathons, and have two more coming in the next few months! My running goals include running a sub 1:20 half marathon and breaking 50 seconds in the 400m. I am a firm believer in incorporating ample speed work in a training regiment regardless of the desired distance. Therefore this year my goal as coach is to help provide an extra level of speed to crush your next race, whether it be the 100m dash or ultramarathon!
