Stu's Country Mile 5K
I made the 45-minute trip up I-45 to Centerville this morning to run Stu's Country Mile 5K. It was my 23rd time running this race and my 22nd consecutive time. Just as the race started, a storm hit and we ran the whole thing in heavy rain. There was some lightening, but luckily not on top of us. I finished in a slow 41:49 and was 2nd of 2 in the 70 and over age group. I am not sure why my time was slow, rain or hip? In any case, I did not seem to aggravate the hip injury. This was my 965th race. As usual, our club members had breakfast at the Town Cafe after the race and then watched the 4th of July Parade.
