Former Top Performers of The Woodlands Marathon (and Half) Compete Well Internationally on Sunday


Over the weekend, a number of former top performers of The Woodlands Marathon and its companion half marathon competed well internationally.

Austin’s David Fuentes, who was second in the inaugural The Woodlands Half Marathon in 2012 in 1:07:09, is a member of Team USA’s Mountain Running team that raced at the NACAC Mountain Running Championships, which were held 30 minutes outside of Tepatitlan de Morelos, Jalisco, Mexico on Sunday.

Team USA’s men took the silver and Fuentes placed seventh overall in the 12th Carrera Cerro Gordo, which “offered a challenging course with over 2,000 feet of climbing from a starting elevation of 7,000 feet to nearly 8,700 feet at the high point — the turnaround point — on an out and back course covering 12 kilometers of trail,” according to Nancy Hobbs’ report for the American Trail Running Association.

Fuentes said on his Instagram account that “the altitude, the mud, the ascents and descents made for an incredible race.

He added that he “red lined hard in the first two miles climbing to ~8,700 feet, got passed by basically everyone, but clawed my way back and took some serious risks on the downhill for seventh.”

At the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on Sunday in Canada, 2013 sixth-place The Woodlands Half Marathon finisher Enoch Nadler was ninth overall with a personal-best 2:13:04, that lowered his previous best of 2:17:06 at April’s Boston Marathon by more than four minutes.

It was his third career marathon, according to a Facebook post by Ricky Quintana, who also reported that Nadler improves to having the 27th best qualifying time (up from 72nd best) of all current qualifiers for the United States Olympic Marathon Trials in Atlanta next February.

2018 The Woodlands Marathon champion Calum Neff also spirited away a new personal record as he nearly went sub-2:20 on Sunday with a 25th place overall finish of 2:20:44 – a two-minute, 15-second improvement.

He told Jarrett LeBlanc in a comment on a post on his athlete Facebook page that “the fitness is there, fueling (was) on point and (that he) just needs the legs a little more conditioned (for) Tokyo, March 1.”

Neff added on his own post-race post that “my hamstrings were the governor today, firing from 31 kilometers onwards, meaning that I was fairly comfortable throughout the race and unable to push to the full extent until the end where I was flying.”

The Toronto Waterfront Marathon was where he set his world record for pushing a stroller during a marathon with his daughter, Aley.

Etaferahu Wodaj Temesgen, then 23, won the 2013 edition of The Woodlands Half Marathon in an event record that still stands today in 1:13:18.

On Sunday in Toronto, she was eighth overall in the women’s marathon in a time of 2:27:21.

15,000 Runners Crossed Fourth of July Finish Lines in Texas


Some 15,000 runners crossed a Texas finish line that was either Independence Day-themed or during the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

And to no one’s surprise, the greater Houston area and the D-FW Metroplex accounted for just about 60 percent of those finishers – both areas accounting for more than 4,500 each.

Yet for another year, the Run Wild 5K, held just north of downtown Houston from Hennessy City Park and St. Arnold Brewery, produced Texas’ largest Independence Day-themed race with some 1,116 finishers.

It is the fourth straight year that the race has held the title after the then-Baytown Bud Heat Wave 5-Miler surpassed it by two finishers in 2015.

Additionally, it was the third straight year that the event surpassed 1,000 finishers – the only Texas race to do so on the Fourth of July weekend.

Last year, the race had 1,392 finishers, but was down 276 finishers this year.

Traditionally, when the Fourth of July falls on a Wednesday, as it did last year, finisher numbers are higher as fewer people are less likely to travel and take a long weekend.

What’s not known is whether this year’s decline was due to increased promotional activity from a second-year race, the TXU Energy Wings of Freedom 5K and 10K, that was held at another one of Houston’s popular breweries, Karbach Brewing Company.

After a low-key debut a year ago with 186 finishers in a timed 5K, Wings of Freedom added a 10K and saw 598 runners cross a common finish line – an increase of 202 in the 5K and an additional 210 in a new 10K race.

Bumping the Baytown Bud Heat Wave 5-Miler from the runner-up spot a year ago was the Independence Day 8K, located just west of Meyerland Mall in Houston, and it held on to its place as the second largest race by finishers at a single distance with 827 finishers – up 27 from 2017.

This year was the third year for the 8K, which is part of the Houston Running Company’s Houston Holiday Run Series.

But the Heat Wave, which moved to Mont Belvieu when the race’s primary sponsor Wismer Distributing moved its headquarters from Baytown before last year’s race, had the third most finishers of any event this year as the former bellweather 5-mile race and second-year 5K brought 839 finishers across its common finish line.

451 finished the Michelob Ultra 5K while 388 stopped the clock on the renamed Texas Bud Heat Wave 5-miler.

Last year’s combined 727 finishers – 429 in the 5-miler and 298 in the 5K – were likely lessened by threatening rains on race day a year ago.

The uptick at the 5K distance comes a large part from Running Alliance Sport including it as part of its Texas 5K Series.

The second largest event in Texas – with 903 combined finishers – was Five on the 4th in Dallas, which was produced by runDallas and the BMW Dallas Marathon.

Throw in the race’s untimed 2-miler and kids races, the event registered just under 1,200, according to race officials.

A five-miler only just a year ago with 508 finishers, that distance lost 31 finishers, but gained 426 finishers in the 5K.

It was a complete outperformance – a year later - of the Bud Heat Wave’s switch to a two-race event.

Third individually was Frisco’s Hotter ‘N Firecrackers 5K, which has more than doubled its numbers of timed finishers in the last three years.

Initially marketed as a glow run in 2015, the evening, night before the Fourth race dipped to under 400 finishers – 360 – a year later.

However, the flat course, even with its many turns, has sent the race’s numbers to 447 two years ago, 572 last year and 753 this July 3rd.

The fourth position of the weekend is actually held by a non-themed race – the Christmas in July 5K in Houston, which benefits – and starts and finishes in front of – the Salvation Army.

Produced by iRun Productions, the race grew by an exact 20 percent in terms of timed finishers from 433 to 521.  Held on Saturday, July 6 this year, the race features two long straightaways on the streets of downtown Houston.

Fourth and fifth as far as Independence Day-themed races belong to the San Antonio Road Runners Freedom Day Four Miler and Mission’s Stars & Stripes 5K.

The last five years, the Freedom Day 4-Miler has held positions of sixth, fifth, sixth, tied for sixth and fourth this year.

With its 505 timed finishers, the race was down a minuscule three from 2018 and has also seen 499 finishers in 2016.

Produced by Sole Racing, the Stars & Stripes 5K launched in 2016 with 474 timed finishers.

A year later, its 710 timed finishers made it the third largest in Texas behind the Run Wild 5K and the Baytown Bud Heat Wave 5-Miler.

However, the last two years has seen the race fall to 539 and 498 finishers, but still holding on to the fifth spot both years.

Four years ago, the largest event was the 30th annual Liberty By The Lake 5K and 10K in The Colony with its combined 991 finishers (753 in the 5K and 238 in the 10K), but it is down almost 38% since then with 616 timed finishers in the two races this year.

The West Texas Running Club held its 50th anniversary Firecracker Run in Brownfield on the Fourth of July.  Featuring a 10K, 5K and a timed one-mile kids’ run, the race is one of Texas’ oldest.

Up until last year, the 10K was a 10-mile race.  While the number of finishers increased from 45 to 71 a year ago, the distance only produced 68 finishers this year, including the author.

Running 5Ks with Miss Ima and the Dogs


Great trip this weekend.

There’s a really fine delicate balance that I go through:  As an introvert, I like my “me time”; however, there are also times that I enjoy connecting with others.

In running, I’ve long since surpassed my goals, which I think might have been to run a marathon at the beginning.

Now, running races is something that I just enjoy as something to do – and it has always been a catalyst for me to work out – hopefully, more consistently and regularly than the day before.

I started Saturday with the inaugural Miss Ima 5K in Quitman, the county seat of Wood County.  It was a race in Texas county #89 for me.

Race time was at 8 a.m. and I arrived from Van at about 7:20 a.m.

I parked in a lot along Highway 37 and away from the Wood County Arboretum, which was hosting the inaugural race.

I walked over, got my packet, took some pictures around the grounds, went back to the car and then to the restroom before ambling back toward the start.

There were approximately 25-30 runners for this first race.

You could see where the finish line was as there was already a clock positioned there, but the start line – which was marked by flour or chalk – was a tenth of a mile back (or in this case, to the right).

I always have a tendency to give first-year race some slack, but there was no need to here with the two gentleman that were in charge.

One of the two said that he had measured the course twice with a wheel – and that it should be spot on (distance-wide)!  And I strongly believe that it was.

It was an out-and-back course that took us south out of the Arboretum grounds on McAllister Street (which was a flat, smooth concrete street) before making a right-hand turn on to Richards Street.

Then we made another right onto Clark Street, which reminded me a lot of the race a few years ago I ran in Hopkins County and Sulphur Springs.

I passed the mile 1 marker at 9:27.06 and there was a water station in the vicinity, which I bypassed.

We then took a left onto Bermuda St. / Highway 182 and stayed on the shoulder, going over Dry Creek, before turning around and heading back.

On the way out, we ran down a hill that we started to come back up after passing mile 2.

My time was 15:04.81 to the turnaround (at 1.6 miles) and 19:09.81 through two miles.

However, with the uphill, I couldn’t pull it all together to get under 30 minutes.  Mile three was 10:17.79 followed by my best sprint, covering 47.88 seconds over the last tenth of a mile.

I was twelfth overall in 30:14.47.

For traveling and it being a bit humid out, I’ll take it.  I just want to be back under 28 – and maybe 27 – again once we get to cooler weather later in the year.

I left as soon as I finished.

I got a quick bite to eat in Mineola, then drove back to the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Van, showered and hit the road.

I made stops at the following museums along the way:

Van Area Oil & Historical Museum (Van, TX) - Outside only.
No. 1 British Flying Training School Museum (Terrell, TX)
Ennis Railroad & Cultural Heritage Museum (Ennis, TX)
Ellis County Museum (Waxahachie, TX)

Before visiting the one in Ennis, I was still pretty hungry and wasn’t looking for a big meal, but I found a local place:  Bailey’s CafĂ©.

When I went inside and got the menu, the portions were really geared toward dinner, so I chose a sandwich, but still left feeling stuffed.

I ended up making it to Waco a little after 6 p.m. where I checked into the Courtyard by Marriott near Indian Springs Park where the second annual Howl At The Moon 5K would start and finish.

I did the race a year ago, and was fortunate enough to fit it into the schedule again this year.

My favorite Waco native, Nancy Goodnight, was down here in the greater Houston area riding the Katy Flatland 100 today so I didn’t get to see her as I normally do.

I was already pretty beat so I set the alarm for 9 p.m. – as I was close enough to walk to and from the start – and took a short nap.

I got up, walked over and got my packet, which was a medium shirt (that went to Waverly, my daughter) and a bib, and came back to the hotel until about 9:50 p.m. before making my way back to the start.

Just before the start, a woman noticed that I was wearing my 2013 Blues Capital of Texas 5K tech shirt from a race in Navasota and she and her husband noted that they both had done the race in 2012 (and had the grey shirt, which I also have.)  That race might have gone on for another year, but is no longer held.

This race, though, also got started right on-time.

We crossed north across the Brazos River and the Suspension Bridge and then ran all the way past McLane Stadium -- #goflames, veered to the right over the pedestrian bridge to University Park.  There we made a left down to in front of the Rayborn building then turned around and came all of the way back.

Mile 1 - 9:54.61
To Turnaround - 5:33.96 (15:28.57)
Back - 15:21.02
Total = 30:49.59

The first mile appeared to be marked just before the pedestrian bridge, which came in at 9:54.61.  Given the humidity, I kind of didn’t care what my time was.

At the turnaround, my watch showed 15:28.57.

As I usually fade a little bit on the back half, I thought that I might be in for an over 31-minute showing.  However, the way out seemed to be a bit more uphill than the return.

I made it back in 15:21.02 – to keep it underneath a 10-minute per mile pace – for an overall time of 30:49.59

But, man, was it humid.

I grabbed a bottle of water and started to walk back to the hotel.  Once there, I put both rooms in my hotel room down as low as they could go – temperature-wise, showered, dried off and was getting ready to do some work on my computer and I was still sweating!

Got a pretty good night’s sleep, filled up with gas, got breakfast and made it to College Station by 9:45 a.m. for this morning’s worship service at Central Baptist Church.

It is the second time that I’ve had the chance to visit this church.  If I lived in the area, I might attend there on a regular basis.

On the way home, I texted Waverly and we agreed to have lunch at Crave, a new hot dog and BBQ place near Spring Steubner / Kuykendahl and 99.  The food was excellent, but the turnaround time – 16-17 minutes – caused for people to not only stand to wait to get their food but also a place to sit.   Best to go here at an off-hour.
