Santa Hustle Half Marathon

I drove down to Galveston yesterday for the Santa Hustle Half Marathon this morning.  This was my 3rd consecutive year for running this race.  I am still trying to thaw out.  The temperature was 41 degrees during the race with a constant 30 mph north wind.  The course was basically down and back on Seawall Blvd.  The first half was going south, but coming back was brutal.  At times, I felt like I was going to blow over and during gusts, I almost came to a halt.  After the race, the long walk back to my car was worse.  I finished in 2:52:19 and was 3rd of 5 in the 70 and over age group.  This was my 78th race in 2016.
