Republic of Texas Half Marathon

I got up at 4:15 this morning to make it to College Station for a 6:30 a.m. race start.  The temperature was in the low 40's and it was just getting daylight when the race started.  It was generally an out and back course, mostly through the Texas A&M campus and an adjoining neighborhood.  I felt good and finished in 2:54:01, 2nd of 2 in the 70 and over age group.  It was my fastest half since December 2014.  After returning to Huntsville, I took and nap and went to the Sam Houston State - Oklahoma baseball game.  Sam Houston won again and game 3 is tomorrow.
