|Race Start Line: I'm Beneath the Sign|
What a great morning! I ran in a 5K race. It took place at a small park north of Houston. Yesterday it was warm, but today we had great racing weather. It was chilly at the start - about 50*.

I thought I might look at my watch every now and then, but I was so busy looking where I was going that I only had time to check it once. It didn't matter, though - I just ran at a hard effort the entire way.
|About 2/3 into the Race|
My husband was my "race photographer". It was great to see him and to hear him cheer me forward when I wanted to stop. I loved the big trees and the lakes. There were a few short hills, which made it more fun than a flat course, and we ran on asphalt and gravel trails.
After the race, they gave us oranges and cookies and, surprisingly, even avocados. I've never been given avocados at a race before. That was great!
