Trail Flooding Possible This week
With all of the recent rain, LCRA has been opening floodgates at Tom Miller Dam. More rain is expected this week so this may continue. In the past, this has resulted in flooding on the trail in some areas. The map below indicates areas where the trail has flooded in the past. Watch out for water on the trail and be careful out there.

Member Highlight: Meghan Dickerson
What prompted you to join Gazelles and when did you join?
I decided to run a half marathon for my 30th birthday so I joined the Gazelles in November 2014 and ran the Austin Half Marathon in February 2015. I enjoyed it so much I ran my first marathon later that year in November and it was an amazing experience because I got to do it with the Gazelle-Phia crew in Philadelphia and we had a blast.
Which group do you run with?
Far West - ‘Run with Jay!’
What's your favorite workout and why?
I like doing Yassos and 800m runs. Its fun to go fast on the track but for a very short amount of time :)
How has Gazelles changed your running/life?
It changed my life because it gave me a tribe of amazing people and a very positive and time consuming hobby when I needed it the most. It changed my running because I went from running a 10K to running a marathon in a year. That showed me how much I'm capable of and gave me a tremendous amount of confidence. I can honestly say that I get more out of running than I put into it and I'm sure we can all agree that we put A LOT into running. Also I get to eat tacos with a group of sweaty runners every Saturday so that's awesome too.
What’s your favorite Gilbert-ism or best story about him?
I love watching Gilbert be the major of the trail. It's so crazy when you run with him and everyone you pass says hi to him and you think "How could he possibly know all of these people?"
