I got up at 4:45 this morning for the 100-mile drive to Nacogdoches to run the Fredonia 10K. While it was dark for most of the drive there, it is a scenic drive through the piney woods of Texas. I finished in 1:16:11 and was 2 of 2 in the 70 and over age group. Before leaving Nacogdoches, I had to take my wife to a plant sale someone told her about. I caught a few z's while she was shopping. From there, we drove 75 miles to Tyler for a family thing this evening. In the meantime, I got a shower and a nap at my sister's place. We made the 135-mile drive back to Huntsville tonight and got home at 10 p.m. Long day. In any case, the race this morning was my 879th race and my 2,393rd consecutive day of running.
