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.
