Patrick Montgomery

Patrick Montgomery has been lucky enough to live all over the world but he calls Texas home.

After a first brief visit to Austin in 1992, from the Dallas/Ft Worth area, he fell in love with the town. He moved to Austin in 1993 And met his lovely wife Claudia, who is also a Gazelle. Patrick’s family includes two beloved dogs, one named Huck, and the other Mr. Frito

After his debut marathon in Austin, which did not quite go to plan, Patrick Joined The Gazelles, and has been a happy Gazelle for 7 years. It is not uncommon to have a Patrick sighting on the trail any day of the week. He is easy to spot with a tattoo covering his entire back. He might look serious, but that is just because he’s bad at smiling while running. He’s actually very friendly, kind of goofy, and doesn’t bite. Feel free to approach without caution.
