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.
