CoRUNavirus Challenge

Dean of Students David Tuttle challenged the Trinity community to complete 50 miles running, walking, skating, or even crawling! More than 160 Tigers signed up to crush more than 8,000 miles collectively, getting some fresh air and sunshine during the pandemic. The challenge also encouraged participants to donate to the San Antonio Food Bank, an extension of the Dean of Students Half Marathon fall program and its relationship with the Kayla Mire Food Drive.

Wellness Warriors

More than 20 Trinity faculty and staff logged on twice a week for Wellness Warriors, a Zoom version of Trinity fitness instructor Colleen Hill’s popular workout class.

Tigers followed along for snack prep advice in the kitchen of Lexi Phelps ’18, learned about nutrition from dietician Melissa Heuer ’01, sweated it out doing yoga with Steve Falk ’98, M’99 and Lisa Ingle-Stevens ’99, and more.
