Annie set a PR by over 6 minutes!
Even with a freaking TRAIN that halted runners 5 minutes into the start! Here is a picture our friend Suzie took with her iPhone as they all stood around an waited:
|hmmm ... might be a bit of a SNAFU?|
According to her Garmin she lost a little under 2:00 minutes waiting for the stupid train. The RD sent out an apology and so did the train company. They said they will be adjusting finishing times. Annie submitted some online form so her time should end up being even faster!
Annie and her Sherpa Pre-Race - lots of gear hanging from the Sherpa!
Elizabeth, Annie, and Ruth Ann displaying their Bling! This was Elizabeth first half and Ruth Ann's second. As you can tell from the smiles they all had a great time and a great race!

Some Texas Love!
This is the Brooks Running area at the Expo. Do you see the little blue booth on the right? I stood in that for 8 hours on Friday having people fill out raffle tickets. My feet felt like I ran in a marathon later that night! The Brooks folks were a lot of fun and all are enthusiastic about Running and make the sport fun for everyone.
Overall, we had a great weekend and a ton of fun. The weather was perfect for running and even more perfect for eating and drinking - which I did my far share of! This was a tune up race for Annie as she prepares for the Houston Full Marathon on January 31st. She has been working very hard and logging the miles in the bank and is on track to have an awesome marathon.
