Houston Half Marathon
I was out of bed at 4 this morning to drive down to Houston to run the Houston Half Marathon at 7 a.m. Arriving plenty early, I got a good parking place and a chance to visit with some friends before the race. I finished in 2:57:43, which was 22 seconds faster than my half in Huntsville last Saturday. I placed 7 of 10 in the 75 and over age group. There were about 4,000 finishers in the half marathon and another 1,500 in the 10K. A check of the weather conditions when I finished showed that it was 69 degrees and 99 percent humidity.
