Resolute Running Training Center



THANK YOU ALL for being a part of the 2nd annual Halloween Havoc Half Marathon and 6 Mile trail race. From the runners, to the volunteers, to everyone that came to just hang out, we LOVE you! As always, it was a blast to host y’all in our backyard, the beautiful Oak Mountain State Park. From day 1, OMSP has been nothing but accommodating to ZTR! They open their gates to us to use their pristine trails and have always helped us with whatever we need!

Next are our sponsors. Thank you Resolute Running for your support of ZTR! Michael and Mary’s aid station was awesome and we cannot express how much y’all mean to the ZTR family! Thank you Walk-On's Sports Bistreaux! Your hospitality towards us was phenomenal and the runners loved it! As always, the food was excellent, as was the service! Thank you Paloma Sisters/Birmingham Ultra Trail Society for a fantastic aid station for the half marathon! The runners loved seeing y’all after 6.5 very hilly miles 😆.

Last, but certainly not least, thank you to our very special volunteers! So many friends showed up yesterday and in the days leading up to the race to help us put this thing together! Dusty Davis, thank you for helping flag the half marathon course! Kristi, Raven, and William-thank you for helping with SO much on race day! From unboxing pint glasses, to helping at packet pickup, to sweeping the entire half marathon course, to helping break down, y’all were AWESOME! Paige Paschal, Morgan Chatam, Jason Chatam, Amber Whilock, Seana Wade, Shellie Talley, Beau Talley, Mark Beggs, Bob Sims, Melissa Beard, Robert Watters, Heather Watters-what else is there to say about our wonderful Birmingham trail family? Y’all are the most selfless, supportive, and kind people I know. ALL of you are what makes Birmingham the best and most welcoming trail community on the planet!
Rhett Wheeler-thank you for setting up, breaking down, and everything in between. You helped us SO much and we are more appreciative than you know! David Long- thank you for helping with packet pickup and guiding runners to the finish line!

To anyone we failed to mention, please know that we LOVE and APPRECIATE you too but are still very sleep deprived 😂

THANK YOU Resolute Running for your continued support of ZTR! Resolute will be manning the aid station for the 6 miler at the 2nd annual Halloween Havoc night race! Gonna be a party in the woods! Let’s see those costumes!

Now this last race report is cool! We don't only run...we train for obstacle course races and Ironmans as well! 😎 😎 😎

You are an IRONMAN! 💪 How many people can say that?!?! Resolute Runner Cristina Satterfield wanted to attempt an Ironman and she picked Arizona as her target. For those of you that don’t know, an Ironman is a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run. 😳 Cristina worked her tail off for months to get ready, and yesterday was the big day. Even in the face of choppy, cold water that left several participants hypothermic, a nasty headwind for a ten mile uphill stretch on the bike, then rising temperatures while on the run, Cristina persevered and dominated this race! 🙌 When Coach Alex asked her how she felt and her thoughts, she said, “It was by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I’m ready to sign up for another!” 🤣🤣🤣 Spoken like a true athlete. Congratulations Cristina!!! You have worked so long and hard for this and I am bursting at the seems with pride for you and your accomplishment. What a bada$$!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Resolute Running loves to represent...even internationally! Where was one of our teammates this time?!?! ETHIOPIA! 🇪🇹 🇪🇹 🇪🇹 🇪🇹 🇪🇹 🇪🇹 🇪🇹

Resolute Runner Kate Herrera Jenkins has gone international this month! 😁 Kate had the opportunity to race a 10k in the Great Ethiopian Run in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Saturday! 🇪🇹 The event was founded by the legendary Haile Gebrselaisse and attracts nearly 40,000 runners. 😳 This has been an incredible month for Kate. Earlier this month she had a chance to meet Eliud Kipchoge and Meb Keflezighi at the NYC Marathon. 🙌 You are rubbing elbows with the best of the best Kate, and we are super jealous! 😂

Now let's enter ULTRA land! We had some bada$$ ladies out there this weekend!

Holy wow! Resolute Runner Monica Showers is adding another buckle to her collection after completing the Fall Creek 100 this weekend! Not only did she earn that buckle, she finished as 3rd overall female. BOOM! 💥 And yes, this is the same runner who snagged a sub-24 buckle at the Hennepin 100 in October AND was the last person standing at the Arkansas Backyard Championship in May. 🏆🏆🏆 This girl is on fire!!! 🔥☄️🔥 Congrats, Monica!

😁 Huge kudos to Resolute Runner Christie Abbott Smith who ran 50K at Fall Creek Falls in Tennessee this weekend! 🌟🌟🌟 We absolutely love that Christie is not afraid to go after a challenge! She is strong mentally and physically, which is a great combination for a kick-a$$ trail runner! ⛰️🏃🏻‍♀️⛰️ Congrats on 31 miles this weekend, and we can’t wait to see what you tackle in 2023!

If you know Laura Heider, you know she is an absolute rockstar, and in the time she's been with Resolute Running she has graduated from half marathons, to 50ks, to 100ks! Her next step was to tackle a 100, cue Fall Creek. Her training was strong, her spirit and determination are unstoppable, and for nearly 40 miles she was all smiles and running well. Nutrition was on point, she was working the aid stations like a boss, and it was a perfect start to a race. 💪 Around mile 40 however, Laura did not come into the Bridge aid station at the time we projected. We learned Laura had fallen and when she did so she felt a pop or strain in her upper leg / groin. Dropping from a race is never an easy decision, but safety is always the first concern. There will always be other races, but there is only one Laura. She has some unfinished business with this one. Congratulations on a great performance Laura! You were amazing ❤️

Down in Prattville, AL, Resolute Runner Ryan Stanford took on the Centerpoint Half Marathon & 5K Race on Saturday and had a great race! 🙌 Ryan treated this 13.1 mile run as a workout, and along the way won 2nd place overall! 😳 💥SHAZAM!💥 You know it’s a good feeling to not even race as hard as you can and walk away with a top 2 finish! 💪💪💪 Congratulations Ryan! You continue to amaze us! 🎉🎉🎉

Next up we have our Magic City Half Marathon Finishers who all hit some major milestones!

Resolute Runner Jeff Lancaster has had a big year of running, and Sunday’s half was the icing on the cake. 🍰 Not only did Jeff go sub 1:40 for the first time, running a 1:39:27, he also won 3rd place in his age group! 💥BOOM!💥 Congratulations on a great race and PR Jeff! Your earned this one! 💪💪💪

Paul Booker took on the half marathon this weekend. Paul executed his plan perfectly! 💪 Finishing with negative splits and a brand new 4-minute half marathon PR, Paul was ringing that bell!!! 🔔🔔🔔 Congratulations Paul!

Who shows up to run a training run at the Magic City Half Marathon and accidentally runs a PR?! 🔔🏅🔔 Resolute Runner Amanda Ward Ennis, that’s who! Amanda finished the race looking fresh and relaxed, all while making her final mile the fastest. Wow, way to go Amanda! 🙌

Resolute Runner, Meagan Gray, wasn’t sure what the day was going to entail, but she decided to go for it, and we are so glad she did! 🙌 Meagan set a three and a half minute PR, went sub 1:40 for the first time, running a 1:39:39, and finished 2nd place in her age group! 💥SHAZAM!💥 Now that is a great day! Congratulations on an awesome performance Meagan! You are getting faster every day and we are loving it!

Resolute Runner, Stefanie Krick, has had one heck of a year! She thought about trying to PR at the half marathon distance and run a sub 1:40 for the first time this past weekend at the Magic City Half Marathon. The result? She crushed a 1:38:57, set a HUGE PR, and finished as 2nd place female master! Congratulations on a great performance, an amazing race, and an incredible year! 🙌

Sunday was a great day for Resolute Runner Scott Padgitt. 💪 Scott is training for the upcoming Tokyo Marathon, but thought it would be fun to do his long run at the race so he could have some folks to run with. Scott earned a podium finish with a 2nd place age group award. 🙌 Way to go Scott!
