Halcyon - Mueller
1905 Aldrich Street, #110

Instead of always being super-star athletes, sometimes we really just want to enjoy a beer with our friends. Gazelles, Kris and Craig Durr are hosting Gilbert’s Gazelles at their establishment, Halcyon at Mueller, for a special Saturday Happy Hour.

First drink is free, and complimentary light snacks will be offered. Wristbands will be given at the door.

Join us and make new Gazelle friends!


SeaWheeze Training Information Session - April 27

Gilbert will lead this short kickoff session on April 27 at 9:00am for those training with Gazelles for the SeaWheeze Half Marathon in August. Stop by to meet the group (more than 55 runners!) and share information on accommodations, group activities and special training events.

What prompted you to join Gazelles and when did you join?
I joined Gilbert’s Gazelles in August 2010 because I heard about Gilbert’s inspiring story and the awesome running reputation the Gazelles had. 

Which group do you run with?
Far West Gazelles with Coach Jay

What's your favorite workout and why? 
Long runs on the weekends because I love catching up with my friends.

How has Gazelles changed your running/life?
I’ve learned how to not get injured and I stay healthy (as long as I do the 20/20 exercises). Also, I am such a better wife, mother, coworker, and friend on days that I run. It truly makes me a better person. 

What’s your favorite Gilbert-ism or best story about him?
My first day of Gazelles was a Spring Creek work out. It was so hard that Gilbert had to drive me home and during the drive home, he asked me if I had read his book which I hadn’t. Ha! (Hint: Gilbert’s book, This Voice in My Heart is on Amazon!)

Each Gazelle featured in the Member Highlight has been selected randomly from our active member list.


From the Gazelle Foundation…

Tune in this Tuesday, April 16th to CBS Austin’s We Are Austin Morning Show for a quick appearance by Gilbert. He will be on air promoting the Foundation’s Spring For The Water fundraising event.
