I signed up for the Houston Marathon (January 30, 2011) today. This will be my 15th Houston. In over 470 races I have run, it is the first time I ever got an entry fee discount for being retired from the military. Thanks, Houston.
I met up with the group this evening and ran trails at the park. Even though the temperature was in the low 80's because of all the rain, the humidity was extremely high. I ran 4.25 miles and was completely soaked in sweat when I was done. I was so thirsty that I drank water after running rather than having a beer.
