Tomorrow I will be running in the Lake Houston 10k in Kingwood, TX.
Today, as the temperature climbed to 100, I was questioning my sanity for (a) racing in mid-August in Houston and (b) training for a fall marathon in Houston. This matched up with my training schedule as I am supposed to do a “fast” 6 miles before my long run for the week.
I’ve never ran this race before or in the Kingwood area. I’m hoping for a fairly flat course and some “lake cooled” breezes. As usual, I’ve got some goals to share, these are my 5 goals for Lake Houston 10k.
5 Goals for Lake Houston 10k
- Respect the distance.
- Stay hydrated!
- Time goals: A – 1:00, B – 1:05, C – 1:10.

Do you make goals for races other than time goals?
