Woodforest Charity 10K and Buffalo Bayou Brewery Run
I ran the Woodforest Charity 10K in Conroe this morning. The course was relatively flat and through various neighborhoods in Conroe. I finished in 1:21:08 and won first in the 70 and over age group. This was 21 seconds faster than my 10K time in New Braunfels last week. It was hot and humid and I had to take on a lot of water during and after the race. It was well-organized and I got to visit with a lot of good friends. Then, I drove on down to Houston to run the 11:20 a.m.,Buffalo Bayou Brewery Run with my, niece Amie, who lives in Houston. I stayed with her and we finished the 3.6-mile course in 52:30. By then, it was really hot and humid. We cooled off with a brew and then had lunch together. This was my 900th race.
