To support the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Multilingual Programs has don its cowboy boots (running shoes) for this year’s Rodeo Run scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, March 4th.
The team of runners includes Assistant Superintendent Dr. Altagracia “Gracie” Guerrero, Compliance Manager Patricia Sanchez and Multilingual program specialists Lee Glaesemann (Ironman athelte), Dr. Michelle Burke, Nereyda Salas and Rebecca Sanchez.
The six runners have already written down their goals for tomorrow’s race: 2 loops (about 6 miles) for the 10k, starting slowly and then moving progressively towards race pace; and 1 loop (about 3 miles) as a jog/walk for the 5k runner, jogging one minute and walking five.
“Tomorrow we’ll have perfect running weather: sunny and breezy with a starting temperature at 52 degrees!,” mentioned Glaesemann.
After some practice runs at Memorial Park and multiple training tips, the team is ready to contribute to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which last year awarded more than $1.6 million to nearly 100 HISD graduates.
Some of the runners are also using this event to help them prepare for the half marathon in April and January of next year. Who knows? Maybe there is a full marathon in one of these runner’s future.
