Fredonia 5-Miler

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.
