Octoberfest Half Marathon

I went back to College Station this morning to run the Octoberfest Half Marathon.  The race started in the dark at 7 a.m.  The weather forecast for 7 a.m. called for 99% humidity and 100% by 8 a.m.  I suppose the forecast was correct.  The temperature was in the 80's, so it was a challenge to stay hydrated during the race.  The start line was outside of Kyle Field and the finish line was inside the stadium.  I ran slow, but never walked a step and finished in 3:05:35.  I was second place of 2 in the 70 and over age group.  This was my 74th half marathon, working toward a goal of 101.
