Heights 5K

I got up at 5 this morning and drove down to Houston to run the Heights 5K.  I guess you could say it was a 6-cow race, with 961 finishers in the timed event.  The course was flat and down and back on Heights Blvd. in the northern part of Houston.  According to my Garmin, I finished in 35:41.  The chip-timed race results said 36:51 for my chip time.  I am not sure how that happened, but I am sure about the 35:41.  I will claim that.  In either case, I was 6 out of 9 runners in the 70 and over age group.  The overall female winner was Kaytlynn Welsch (age 13), with a time of 18:44.  Her 11-year old sister, Heather, finished in 20:11.  Amazing.
