I have a very exciting post to make today. Let me start off by introducing myself. My name is John Tuggle and I am a sports chiropractor in the Cedar Park area. My friends call me Tuggle. I have been involved in the treatment of athletes for a pretty good while now. My primary focus is athletes and as a guy who likes to participate, I stay pretty connected to the running and triathlon scene. If you have ever heard of The Tri Doc, then you have heard of my clinic.
Over the past several years, I have enjoyed engaging in all fields of the local athletic community. I love running and staying fit as much as many of you do. I sponsor lots of local races and have even put on a few myself. I participate in races ranging from 5k’s to ultras or sprint triathlons to ironman distance. I absolutely love the people of central Texas that run, cycle, swim, obstacle course race and more. I really love the fact that I get to have my hobby so intertwined with my career of helping people get better.
I want to continue to be involved in the promotion of fitness in the Austin area. When I found out that someone was needed to take over the Texas Running Post site, I was greatly intrigued. I began some email communication that ultimately led me to becoming the new go to person for Texas Running Post. I am so excited!
I am completely honored that the original owners and creators of TRP, Michael Madison, Ashish Patel and Bob “Wish” Wischnia have entrusted me with continuing on the tradition of this website. Michael explained to me that when RunTex left the market, it created a void in the local running community for race information, running concepts and an overall hub for runners. These three innovative gentlemen started Texas Running Post with the idea that runners need a way to stay connected. The vision was to keep runners informed via a website that was supported by social media. That’s the same idea that I want to nourish. I want to continue Wish, Ashish and Michael’s vision and help it to grow. I really appreciate that they have allowed me this opportunity to keep Texas Running Post thriving.
I am in discussion with the previous TRP contributors as well as looking for some new ones to add some more variety to the site. I would love to have you comment on social media or on the website on how we can continue to make the website great and be relevant for the running and triathlon community. Thank you for reading. Thank you Michael, Wish and Ashish for this opportunity. Let’s stay active together and continue to make the Central Texas area a great place to stay fit.
