The Houston Texans hosted a 5k, The Running of the Bulls, over the weekend. The route led us around the arena complex, through the tunnel, to the field. It was a bit of a bummer that the field wasn’t down, but it was still a great run. Plus, it was a great start to a game day where the Texans beat the Broncos 31-25, going 3-0 for the first time. GO TEXANS!
The timing of the race fit perfectly into where I am for my marathon training, so I switched my rest days up this week to get this in. I’m glad I did! Even with a couple of unexpected inclines, I managed to run my best time yet! My official time was 10:02/mi! I placed 92/376 for women my age group, and 1036/2903 for men & women overall. That’s 24th and 37th percentile respectively. Not too shabby!
Venture beyond what you know you can do, and soon you’ll know you can do more. Give yourself a solid, meaningful, positive challenge, and in working to meet that challenge you’ll encounter a more powerful you.
