Gruene Hall 10K
I got up yesterday and ran a quick mile on the roads in town. Then, I drove 50 miles over to College Station with my son for a meeting. We got back about 2:30 p.m. and then I left with my wife for a 3-hour drive to New Braunfels for the Gruene Hall 10K this morning. Of course, I had to drive back through College Sation to get to New Braunfels. I ran the race for the third straight year, but finished in 1:22:42. Both previous years, I finished in 1:16. I am not sure why my time was slower this year; I felt okay. The course was new this year and there were probably more hills. I think the humidity was higher than normal for that part of Texas. In any case, I was the only one in the 70-74 age group and picked up a first place win. We drove back to Huntsville this afternoon.
