2 Samuel 18:24

While David was sitting between the inner and outer gates, the watchman went up to the roof of the gateway by the wall. As he looked out, he saw a man running alone.

Welcome to Tighurt Running -- a running club with only one member! 

My name is R. Andrew Strickland.  I am a recreational runner who LOVES running races -- although I only win the occasional age group award.

The name Tighurt is derived from the words I used to say always before going out running:  This Is Gonna HURT
The phrase was never meant as a complaint -- merely a mantra to keep me amused before I went out and tested my physical and mental endurance!

The TIGHURT RUNNING site will list information of interest to my friends (which races I have survived recently without being admitted to a hospital) as well as to runners in whatever area in which I'm currently living (upcoming races that I intend to run, schedules, and assorted running links.) 

* I am a career theatre director, so my current location can change rather quickly.  No matter where I am, I run races over a fairly large area. 

By the way, I don't always run alone!  I am a proud member of Macon Tracks Running Club, Marathon Maniacs, and Georgia Ultrarunning and Trailrunning Society (GUTS)
