I went up to Madisonville (26 miles north of Huntsville) to run the Warrior 5K at 9 tonight. It was a non-competitive and un-timed run.. The course was not marked very well and I and others got off course. My friends who stayed on course said it was 2.8 miles. According to my GPS, my route was 2.98. I finished in 38.55. I ran into several old friends at the race, including Mary Kaplan, who lives out near Marble Falls in central Texas. She is 76 years old and a retired Air Force full colonel. She is a on a quest to run a 5K and win her age group in all 254 Texas counties. Tonight was her 200th county. I think it was the 4th time I have seen her at a race. I also had a chance to visit with Dr. Jennifer Sullivan of Madisonville. I met her at a race many years ago when she was in Vet school in College Station.
