Houston Half Race Recap

This past weekend I ran in the Houston Half Marathon.  I was signed up for the 10k last year, but the race was called due to Tropical Storm Patricia that dumped massive amounts of rain on Houston.   The organizers had offered a nice discount code to everyone that was registered for last years race. Race day eve found me resting for most of the…

Southern Star Brewing Co. 5k Race Recap

I arrived up at Southern Star around 7ish. It was already warm – 82!  I needed to pick up my packet with my bib and timing chip so I took care of that business, went to the REAL bathrooms and then strolled back out to the car to put away the stuff I didn’t need. I had plenty of time to stretch, warm up, and mentally…

Baytown Bud Heat Wave Race Recap

I signed up for this race on a whim, when it became clear that I had no conflicts on the 4th of July. I had remembered seeing information about the Baytown Bud race before, but with Heat Wave in the title, that always put me off investigating it any further. Once I started investigating the race, I knew it was meant to…

May The Forth Be With You Virtual Race Recap

Today I’m linking up with Erica at MCM Mama Runs, Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and Patty at My no-guilt life for Tuesdays on the Run. Today the topic is the weird stuff that happens/you see at races or out on the run? I don’t have much to share… not sure if it is because I don’t see much weird stuff…
