I drove about 75 miles east this morning to Diboll, Texas to run the Running Jacks 5K. Diboll is just south of Lufkin and I am a member of the Lufkin Area Pacesetters (LAPS). The photo here is of me and my LAPS friends. Nice course, starting and finishing at the high school track. I finished in 36:30 and was first in my 70 & over age group (yep, I was the only one in the age group). I was relieved that I did not have sharp pains in my calf. With that, I will sign up for the Race for the Pennant 10K (Astros Run) next Saturday.
