For the 5th straight year, I ran the Greyhound 5K in Kosse this morning. Kosse is 88 miles northwest of Huntsville. It gave me a chance to visit with a lot of friends, including Mary Kaplan, founder of the 254 Texas club. It is a club of runners striving to complete a race in all 254 Texas counties. She only has 20 more to go. I completed the race in 36:51 and was second in the 70 and over age group, behind my old friend, Dennis Alston. After the race, I had breakfast at the Kosse Cafe and then headed back to Huntsville. Race 885 completed.
