Reflecting on my Houston Half, I was surprised to hear so many of my colleagues having a difficult race. For whatever reason, it did not affect me as much. I'm going to notch all of that to adjusting my pace for the conditions. My humblest moment of the race came during the first 8 miles. I saw Jim Braden very early on. He was half a block ahead of me. I planned on reeling him in. However, Jim slowly pulled away. I eventually lost sight of him after the 8 mile marker. Jim won his age group. The 75 year group I believe. WAY TO GO JIM!
Today's run called for a 6 miler. Allison wanted to come along, which meant that it was going to be a hard run for me to keep up with her slow run. We finished in 8:17 pace. I thought my lungs were going to explode in the chilly 36 degrees weather. I'm tickled to death that we have a common hobby. I just wish I can keep up with her better.
Run on friend!
