  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    I greatly enjoyed this run and found it very convenient, especially as I live only a few miles from the start and finish in Sugar Land, TX. It is a relatively small race (allegedly 500 or so half marathoners and 300 full), so of course there are pros and cons there. Communication was efficient and well-spelled out online and with emails. Packet pickup was a breeze for me at the local Sprouts grocery. Race day was early (6:30 start) and I was there early at 5:30 as requested by the race directors, so as to not clog the highway. This race is for those who want to go fast on a relatively flat course without any crowds, but also for those who need extra time on the course. Aid stations were abundant and stocked with water and Gatorade. The course is concrete, but that is just a reality for road runners here in Houston. The half marathon course is one loop with a few u-turns to add length. The full marathon does this loop twice. The finish had great cheerful volunteers handing out finisher medals immediately. I also received a finisher's tech t shirt. Food for runners was abundant and there was beer too! All in all a great race!

  • Did the JINGLE ALL THE 5K in 2018

    The race was well organized and great participation! A lot of fun!
  • Did the JINGLE ALL THE 10K in 2018

    Great event, race start time was good so temperature was perfect and course was relatively flat so you could get a good time. Keep an eye on wind direction as head wind can make for a long return journey or vice versa. Due to the nature of the course and the 5km and 10km run at the same time without separation the 10km second lap can get congested at times which when ducking and diving through the crowds can be energy sapping. Great race in all though and a good way to start the December month after thanksgiving.
  • Did the JINGLE ALL THE 10K in 2018

    The race was good. Would recommend that the speaker starts earlier to build a festive atmosphere. Just needed to be fired up a tad bit more.
