Tuesday’s tempo run was the second best ever, a 25:19, about 15 seconds behind February 19th’s best ever Dow-. Next up is the Freeport 5K on the 26th. I’m hoping BrettP will be run it. I haven’t competed against him for years. He’s only been running a few months, but I think he’s already going to provide some super competition.

Even the local Texas beach looked nice on Saturday
