Ramon Rosales' 2nd Place, 100-Mile Finish at Rocky Raccoon Leads Volte into February

The first week of February in Volte, USA was light, but eventful.

Just three weeks after running a stellar 2:36 at the Chevron Houston Marathon, Ramon Rosales, with great support from his wife, two sons and pacers Luis Murillo and Francisco Garza, finished second overall at the Hoka One One Rocky Raccoon 100 Mile Trail race in Huntsville on Saturday, February 5.

Ramon finished in 16 hours, five minutes and 11 seconds in his offical debut 100-miler.  (He had previously run 100 miles in a "Backyard Ultra"-like event previously.)

Early the next morning, Sunday, February 6, our runners did a pretty good job of making the "Big Easy" look easy at the New Orleans "Rock N Roll" Half Marathon.

Christopher Branch stopped the clock at 1:38-even, Kim White and Julie Stevenson ran together in 1:51:42 while Judith Albarran posted a time of 1:55:33.

Lillian Evans, in her second Terry Hershey parkrun 5K of the new year, was the first overall female in a time of 24:25 on Saturday, February 5.

Closer to home, and on that same morning, Waverly Walk ran the new Spindle Tree parkrun 5K in Magnolia, which is held on the Spindle Tree Jogging Trail, in a time of 31:47.

Volte friends Vincent Attanucci and Jon Walk completed the course in respective times of 30:55 and 32:51, respectively.

And in a sparsely attended The Woodlands Running Club Sunday Night 5K on Sunday, Febuary 6, Jane Campbell was the first overall finisher in 24:46.  Her husband Auggie finished in 27:28 while Volte friend
Ken Johnson
did so in 45:15.
