Good Luck, Emma!

We want to wish Coach Emma best of luck as she moves on to start her college career! The Youth Gazelles will miss her patient guidance, and we will all miss her bright smile and cheerful attitude. We miss you already, Emma!


Gazelles Family Photo and Block Party is Saturday, September 21 after the long run!

Every year we take a Gazelles Family Photo to be shared with the group. This year’s photo will take place on Saturday, September 21 and we hope EVERYONE IS THERE! Mark your calendar for a fun morning. We’re planning on snacks, the Gazelle Foundation bake sale, on-site therapists and T-SHIRTS!

The 2019 shirt is a unisex, soft, gray cotton-blend great for pre- and post-workout!

We’re starting a new tradition! These 2019 t-shirts will be available in September and will be FREE to the first 200 active members who attend the Family Photo on September 21, but with a catch.

You must log into your Gazelles Account online (go to the website, click on ACCOUNT, then “Edit your profile.”) and fill in the blank for your t-shirt size BEFORE AUGUST 31st. If you do that, we’ll have a shirt for you on photo day. Please take a moment to update other fields in your profile as well!

If you miss photo day or don’t update your profile, shirts will be available for purchase at The Loop. Stay tuned for details.

What prompted you to join Gazelles and when did you join?
I ran my first marathon and wasn’t very happy with my performance. I joined Gazelles to get help increasing my mileage and pace while avoiding injury. I joined in April 2018.

Which group do you run with?
Monday / Wednesday at Far West

What's your favorite workout and why? 
My favorite part of any workout is the feeling of accomplishment after it’s over!

How has Gazelles changed your running/life?
I’ve definitely gotten faster and love having a community of folks to keep me motivated!

What’s your favorite Gilbert-ism or best story about him?
Since I run with the Far West group I mostly know Gilbert through [coach] Jay's impersonations 😂. I can't vouch for it's accuracy but I'm sure Jay's consistency and his encouragement are characteristics shared!
