Three weeks ago I ran the Chevron Houston Marathon and I had another great experience! We had good weather (unlike last year’s rain) and the spectators were better than ever! I also had a lot of my friends and clients out around the course (thanks guys!!), so that always gives me something to look forward to!Â I ended up going a little slower than planned and didn’t set a PR (I finished at the same time as last year). But, because I went slower I recovered really well and now I’m off to run my first ULTRA MARATHON (50k) at the end of February! Wish me luck : )
*If you are wondering what it feels like to run 26.2 though Houston, read this article I wrote for Culturemap the week before the race!
Also, I wanted to take this time to give a special shout out to my sponsors who helped me raise money this year! I ran on behalf of Buffalo Bayou PartnershipÂ again and participated in the Run For a Reason program and became a “Hero”. This is a great way to raise money for a local charity and I truly believe in Buffalo Bayou Partnership and all the great improvements they are making to our city! I want to give a special shout out to these companies and individuals who kindly donated towards my cause:
(I love their towels!)
