At Austin Fit, we strive to know all the athletes among us in our community. David Fuentes is an elite distance runner and a member of the USATF Mountain Running Team. He was a part of of the team that won gold at the 2016 World Championships, and is currently training for the World Championships in Andorra taking place on September 16. We caught up with him to hear more about what mountain running training looks like in our wonderful city of Austin.
For over a decade, RED Arena, located in Dripping Springs, has offered equine therapy services in the central Texas area.
