Texas Independence Relay DOGs Laura, Kim and I enjoy some healthy food and beverages. We had ample cause for celebration as each of us placed within our respective age groups in the 4-mile race event - despite very hot conditions (~70°F with 80% humidity).
Pictured are additional DOGs Paul and Rick crossing the finish line.
Post-race thoughts. I was extremely happy upon crossing the finish line to realize that despite the heat I'd set a ~1-minute personal record. Additionally, in extrapolating both today's race result and the recent Rodeo Run 10K using Dr. Jack Daniel's methodology suggests that my Boston goal of 3:15 is realistic.
The bottom-line, however, is the Memorial Park Conservancy's 4-mile fun run was a great event (see overall results); it was fun for the participants, and an excellent money-raiser for a very good cause. I highly recommend this race!
