"Texas Thunder is a great program for kids and anybody wanting to get in shape. As a former track athlete, I would not send my kids anywhere else.
"Dear Coach Roddy,
I wanted to say thank you for being my track coach the past two years. I have never been as sad as when I realized my track career was over. You have been one of the best coaches I have had. From your workouts, encouragement, and just love for the sport. I always loved how much you cared about the sport, and every single one of your runners. Every meet and every practice I could tell how much you were focused on us. I am extremely sad we weren't able to finish up the season, but I am so thankful to have had you as a coach. I hope you have a great summer, and are staying safe through all of this craziness.
"When I think of Coach Roddy, I think of passion, excellence and attention to detail. We joined the Texas Thunder because he noticed my son, Cliff, when he was running for a different club and he immediately had some suggestions for how to improve his performance. The first year, Cliff ran in the Junior Olympics, he placed 25th in the country. This past year, he placed 7th and earned a medal. Coach Roddy draws out the best in young people and pays attention to each person in the club. Finally, the Texas Thunder Track Club is a family where each person is valued and noticed."
