Just my third run outside this month and my first outside in a week. I spent all last week in Wichita for business and between the nasty airplane and hotel air, heavy meals each day and plenty...and I mean plenty of after hours activities, it was nice to get it all out this morning. I felt winded and heavy but I think that's to be expected. It's good to be home.

Texas Half

Texas Half by cavern1996 at Garmin Connect - Details

This was my second Texas Half and today's course was brand new to them. Overall it was a good course. Rolling through suburbs of Irving and cheered on by only the police officers maintaining the traffic. There was a small section between miles 7 and 10 where we ran through a park along a river. I felt good today, I took a goo at mile 5 and mile 9. I didn't stop at any of the water stations, just did my best to drink and run. Good run considering I shaved off 10 minutes in just two months. The speed work has really paid off, now I just need to work a little harder and build up my base. Had lots of friends running this weekend, Jorge, Brent, Logan, Tim D, Celina and Heather. Good stuff. Now it's time for beer and a Superbowl.

Wanna thank my beautify wife and children for coming out to cheer me on.  Kelley did a great job volunteering for packet pickup and because of her I ran a hell of a race this morning.
