Both Andrea and Sherry agree that the running community in Houston is as diverse as the city itself. They love how Memorial Park is a physical representation of that sense of community. As members of the Runners High Club, they have become friends with many inspiring and motivating people. It is a tight knit group, and many lifelong friendships have evolved from the time spent running together. Andrea has even traveled to races across the country with several members of the club. Sherry says that even though she is surprised by and proud of what she has been able to accomplish through her running, the friends she has made at the Park are like gold and are the true reason she continues to run.
