DRINK FOR THE WATER AT LENOIR
Our friends (and Gazelles) at Lenoir are hosting a special evening this week to benefit the Gazelle Foundation. Come to socialize with friends, eat amazing food and support the foundation that Gilbert co-founded. Reservations are encouraged. www.LenoirResataurant.com
Connect with Other Gazelles
We have started a Facebook Group page for Gazelles! This is a members-only group to connect Gazelles to one another to talk about all things running. Use this space to find new pace friends, seek advice, post race reports and photos, etc. Enjoy!
Please Help! New yoga mat policy.
We are asking all Gazelles to start bringing their own yoga mats for post run exercises. We feel we can't keep the current supply at HQ clean enough for all the use they are getting, and our storage space is limited. Keep one in your car for workouts. Thank you for understanding!

What prompted you to join Gazelles and when did you join?
I joined Gazelles about 3-4 years ago to work on my form and help me improve my times and become more of a part in the running community than I already was
Which group do you run with?
I run with the youth Gazelles on Monday/Wednesday and the High School Gazelles over the summer
What's your favorite workout and why?
My favorite workout is probably 400 repeats because I like working on perfecting my times and a 400 is also a fun distance to run.
How has Gazelles changed your running/life?
Gazelles has changed my life because it has taught me patience and I have built confidence in my running ability, allowing me to run faster and further than I have before. I remember after starting Gazelles, I was inspired to run a half marathon, and so far, by age 14, I have run three. I am so blessed to have such an amazing coach and I have learned so much.
What’s your favorite Gilbert-ism or best story about him?
My favorite story about Gilbert was the first time when I saw him when he came to my elementary school, Casis, to talk when I was in fifth grade and he talked about his childhood.
