cisneros screen printing logo

Growing up in a family of runners and being involved with the Fort Worth Runners Club and local running community, we've built up quite a collection of race shirts in recent years. With that being said, at CSP, we've come to know what runners want in a shirt. With over 12 years of Screen Printing experience we are ready to implement that knowledge on your next event order. Specializing in up to 4-color screen printing, your race shirt will stand out from all of the rest. We've got all colors from white to vibrant, as well as cotton to moisture wicking. No matter if your design is simple or complex, we've got an expert artist on staff ready to work on your next design. At CSP we feel rushing orders is a recipe for disaster so we do require a 7 business day time frame to ensure your order is printed correctly. Orders start from as small as a dozen pieces to as large as 1,000.

April 12-13-15 Highlights

* At the Texas 10 Series in The Woodlands, Derek Yorek of Fort Worth won the second annual Texas 10 Huntsville on April 15. Yorek, 30, is a professional triathlete and won $150 and earned another $75 for being the first male to reach the 5-mile split on the hilly, two-loop course. Chris Strait, the Texas 10 Conroe winner, set a male masters record with a 1:02:36, which was good for fourth overall. He's training for his first Ironman next month at the Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas in The Woodlands. Read more.

* Despite wet conditions from morning rains and a blustery wind, 62 participants finished the Fort Worth Runners Club's River Ranch 5K on Sunday (Feb. 13). Jose Mejorada, 33, of Fort Worth led the way with a 17:38 over the 3.1-mile course near the Stockyard area. Laura Nelson, 48, of Grapevine was the top female with a 21:29.1 and her protégé Cathy Buchanan, 52, of Fort Worth won the female masters award with a 22:10.8. Jose Loyola, 44, of Stephenville won the male masters with a 20:34.6. Other noteworthy performances were by 9-year-old Alex Loyola, Jose's son, and 77-year-old Ken Brewer of Arlington. Alex ran a 22:15.3 and finished 10th overall and Ken crossed the line at 28:24.3 to finish 22nd overall.

* Ann Erlandsson, a 40-year-old female masters runner, won the female overall 5K award at the Run For Cover in McKinney with a 22:10.1. And if the age and time are correct in the results, an 8-year-old won the female open title in the 10K. Kayla Lemus of McKinney is shown with a 42:55.7 chip time though her gun time was 58:32.5. Some runners reported that the 10K was about two-tenths short and that some of the 5K entrants probably were mixed in with the 10K finishers, which might account for Kayla being shown as the winner. Also another masters runner, 40-year-old Aaron Emerich of McKinney won the male 10K race with a 39:53.9.

* The oldest female winner was 62-year-old Bonnie Wallace at the CARE's Run 4 the Rescue in Gordon. She finished with a 30:30.

In the male race, four dipped under 18 minutes, including overall winner Tristen Leyva (17:18.1) and masters winner Todd Reynolds (17:59.4).

* Two other male masters runners carried off overall awards. Troy Pickett, 42, of Argyle won the Texas 811 Digging Up Awareness 5K in Richardson with an 18:54, and Michael Held, 48, of Dallas won the Daisy Dash 5K in Dallas with an 18:03.

Comments and PRs

There have been a few new runners' comments about races, and a few personal bests posted the past few days. However, they have been far and few between. Please click the link above or click here to submit comments, whether good or bad, about an event or events. Comments could help other runners decide whether they want to participate at that particular event or maybe comments will help race directors solve any particular problems. Regarding Personal Records: You can submit your all-time PR and your most recent PR in your particular age division. The PR listings are for the age division you are in currently. In for example, you ran a 22-minute 5K on the day before you turned, say, 40, and then ran a 22:05 a week after you turned 40, then you have a new PR in your new age division even though you ran faster a week ago. These listed need a lot more names and times; distances are 5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon. The links also are on the menu above, and the PR links are below that.

REMINDER: Please submit your new PRs, whether 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Marathon. Remember, too, that if you have advanced into another age division, then you will set a PR in that age division the first time you run a race. Also please submit comments about races and rate them. This might help others decide which race to enter and could offer constructive feedback to race directors. Race directors also have a chance to comment about the feedback.
