Run the Woodlands 5K

I drove down for the Run the Woodlands 5K this morning.  This race is held on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month, but I have not run it for some time.  It was hot, but I thought I was running well.  I was surprized by my slow 37:23 finish.
I went back down to The Woodlands tonight for a party hosted by John and Gina Slate.  It was to celebrate John's upcoming Leadville 100-Mile Trail Run in Colorado.  It was nice party and I wish John the best of luck at Leadville.

I hope so, Marvin. We have know each other for a long time and I always appreciate your advice and encouragement. I know that we both strive to stay healthy and a few aches and pains along the way are normal. You and I have outlived much of the competition. You are not far behind me, but I have reached the milestone of receiving special awards at races for being the oldest runner.
