I got up at 5 this morning and made the 100-mile drive over to Nacogdoches for the Fredonia 5-Miler. Several old friends were there, so it was great visiting with them. This included Sara McCullough, Jimmy Jones, Cindy Sosa Springs and Zeno Boehmer. Zeno is 85 and still running. I remember when he was in his 60's, he was the overall winner of a half marathon in Woodville. The last time I ran this race was in 2003, when I finished in 49:03. I was a little slower today, with a finish time of 1:00:05. I was second in the 70 and over age group, behind Jimmy and ahead of Zeno.
