Marilynn and I got up early this morning and drove down to Houston for the Running of the Bulls 5K, put on my the Houston Texans. It started outside of what use to be NRG Stadium and finished inside. Nice weather, about 70 degrees. There were 6,000 runners and walkers and too many baby strollers. It was slow going for the first mile until the crowd thinned out. I finished in 37:42 and got a trophy for 3rd of 9 in the 70 & over age group. Marilynn walked the 5K.
