Texas 10 Series Cypress

I drove down to Cypress (northwest of Houston) to run the Texas 10 Series 10-miler.  I met up with my niece, Amie, who lives in Houston.  She ran the 5-mile race.  Nice weather in the low 60's.  The 10-mile course was 2 loops on a 5-mile course.  Flat, but all concrete.  I finished in 2:10:31, about 13 minutes faster than the Texas 10 Series Huntsville a couple weeks ago on a hilly course with very high humidity.  I was 3 of 3 in the 70 and over age group.  It was nice today not being soaked from head to foot in sweat at the finish line.  I had a negative split today.  My second loop was 4 seconds faster than the first.
