In Memory of Pam Houck, a long term, valued member of the WCRC
A friend. A companion. A partner. A confidante. A sister. A neighbor. A runner. A cyclist. A swimmer. A triathlete. A coach. A cheerleader. A photographer. A cat mom. Pam was all these things to people, and many more. Pam loved helping people and bringing them together. She was notorious for sending out group texts to random ladies to have them join her for a group run or swim. She loved to commemorate these events with a selfie, which was always posted to Strava and Facebook, so that her friends could connect with one another. Pam was a regular on the running and triathlete circle, making friends wherever she went due to her warm smile and approachable manner. She had many athletic accomplishments, including qualifying for and running in the Boston marathon, Mt. Washington, and competing and many triathlons including the half iron distance. She was an amazing coach and helped numerous athletes attain their goals, whether it be training for their first marathon or triathlon or learning to swim in the open water. Pam was always there with her “You can do it!” attitude. Pam was very active in her community, advocating for Lake Gardner to allow triathletes to swim safely there by suggesting everyone wear a pull buoy. She was proud of her she lived, regularly posting a photo of Lake Gardner from her condo so that everyone could appreciate its beauty. Pam made a huge impact on all who knew her, and she will be missed.
