Jail Break Half Marathon

I got up very early this morning and drove nearly 100 miles to Baytown (east of Houston) to run the Jail Break Half Marathon at 7 a.m.  The temperature was nice - 50's.  However, it was windy has heck.  At about 8 miles, the course ran a mile up to the highest point on a long bridge and then came down again.  Luckily, we had the wind at our back on the trip up.  I finished in 3:01:01, a little slower than usual.  Slow and steady pace and never walked a step.  I was the oldest runner of 622 finishers and the only one in my 70 and over age group.  Nice trophy.  This was my 86th half marathon; 15 more to reach my goal of 101.
