Miracle Match Marathon 10K - The Lieutenant - Race Report


If you put a bib on, regardless of how fast you go, you've said to yourself, "I think I'm going to run this one for fun."

Yeah right.

Unless you're pacing somebody or running with another runner that might be doing their first race or one at a specific distance, it is hard to deny that part of your DNA.

After running a strong 10K in Lumberton on Saturday, that was my mentality going into today's 10K at the Miracle Match Marathon in Waco.

In fact, I was even going to reach out to Nancy Goodnight, the race director, to see if I could switch to the half marathon.  (There would not have been any Jacob's Ladder if I did as I would have tried to have raced it as much as I could have.)

Nevertheless, I remained at the 10K distance.

I had seen some pre-race messaging from about 10 days ago that the course was going to have to be re-routed because the Brazos River has been so high, but it turned out not to be needed.  More on that later.

After I arrived, I saw Hung Hoang from Houston, got my race packet and then a pre-race hug from the race director, I went back out to my car to warm-up for a little bit.

I watched Bill and Mindy Schroeder arrive and get out of their car.  Bill and Mindy were Houston Striders when I was first starting to run 15-16 years ago.

They lived in Kingwood at the time, but have called the Austin area home for many, many years.

We talked for a little bit and it is always good to see them both.

I finally decided to head back in the Waco Convention Center to await the start and stay warm.

I saw Iram Leon, his wife, Elaine, daughter Kiana and his parents.

They combined to win the marathon relay in 2:56:45 while his parents - Ascencion and Martha - both finished third in their age group in the 10K.

Pre-race, I was resting on a couch that had been brought in by an exhibitor that was hosting some type of honeymoon vacation expo.

I was rather relaxed and wishing I could have such a luxury at every race I participated in.

As I was waiting, I had a chance to see and visit with Andrew Wolfe with PhotoWolfe.com.

He and his wife, Megan, who call Round Rock home, shot a number of Run In Texas races for Bill Gardner and his wife, Karen.

We had a great conversation and he told me that he had recently taken up running and ran 3M last week.  (I just looked it up and he - and his wife - ran a nice time of 2:07:12.)

The weather wasn't terribly cold, but it was a little damp.

I decided to stay inside the Convention Center until I started to see runners move across the start line -- an even better perk than Houston!

It was 58 seconds after the gun went off before I was one of the last ones to cross the start line.  How did I know that it was 58?  Well, the official results display gun time, which differ from my watch which is "chip time".

The first mile is pancake flat.  We run east about half way to the Ferrell Center before we take a hard right and start to make our way through the Baylor University campus.

Mile 1 was 9:30.80.

I ran steady - through and around a lot of people - and I wasn't really racing, so I was pleased thinking that this was my new normal or baseline.

Just after crossing underneath I-35, I saw Breanna Waldrup and Andrew Olson.  They had run the Texas Marathon three weeks ago in Kingwood.

As mile two started, the racing adrenaline started to kick in a little.

It is always nice to run through the Baylor campus.

It made me think about the struggles that my good friends Richard and Amie James are having with the city of Beaumont in that the city should be doing everything possible to showcase their town for people that decide to come and run it.

I knew that I probably wasn't going to have everything that I had the day before, but by the time we made it to mile two - back out on University Parks Drive - I had posted a mile of 9:16.65.

Hmmm.

The water station was right in front of the Mayborn Museum Complex before we turned right and headed over a foot bridge that led over to McLane Stadium, which was ensconced in fog.

Wearing my Liberty running shirt (one of three of them, I should say), I was a little fired up, of course, still from the 48-45 win over Baylor from late August 2017.

Around the stadium we went, and then made a left just before the pedestrian bridge, and headed to the Clyde Hart Track and Field Stadium.

At some point, we passed mile three and it was 10:39.09.

I was a little discouraged in that even though we came over the bridge, I didn't think that I trailed off that bad - including walking through the water station.

Remember, Jon, you said that you were going to run this for fun, right?

After passing the Track and Field Stadium with it on your left, we headed back toward the Pedestrian Bridge.

Was it right that I kept teasing the volunteers with, "Go Flames!  Beat Baylor!"?

Nonetheless, after coming off the bridge, I could see the mile four marker and I finished off that mile in 9:10.29.

Then it is where things get fun.

If Nancy Goodnight ever puts on a race that is completely devoid of any type of incline, hill, ramp or bridge, somebody have her head examined!

So you go down a short incline only to immediately bear to the left towards the Brazos up another one and then you begin to run along the Riverwalk, heading west back towards the start/finish area.

The degree of difficulty was a little greater than in two years ago when it was just clear, cold and sunny.

Since the Brazos River had receded enough to allow for all participants to run on the Riverwalk, there were sections that were muddy so much so that you had to focus on picking your feet up - as if you were avoiding the trail roots at Huntsville State Park.

The mile five marker was up closer than it probably should have been as that mile came through at 7:49.39.

Ah, no way.  Not from my legs.

Then after you get through all of the mud, well, you have to get back up to ground level.

Well, that's five back-to-back inclines up, then cross over the bridge, do a U-turn to the left to go back down to the river level, turn to the right for a short out and back and then head back east to the next bridge - the famous Suspension Bridge - that takes you into the finish.

When we passed the mile six marker, my watch said 11:11.23.

Post-race, looking at the course certification map, I think that the mile marker was set on the west side of bridge where the instructions on the map says, "Trail under Waco Suspension Bridge -- even with E edge of bridge support."

On the west side of the bridge, you do a little bit of an upside down "U" facing the river, cross under the bridge, and then run up a ramp before turning left on to the Bridge to head into the finish.

The last two tenths of a mile was 2:59.65 (even if I'm slow I don't take anymore than 2:20, let's say) -- for an overall finish time of 1:00:37.10.

I charged hard at the end hoping that Andrew would get a good shot of me finishing.

When I finished, I was actually blowing steam as it seemed to have gotten colder from when we started.

While my time wasn't the 56:30 that I had put down 24 hours sooner, it was a two-minute improvement over the 1:02:46.87 that I had run two years before.

A race then that came a day after running the Lake Grapevine Runners and Walkers Bold In The Cold 15K in Grapevine.

I'll take that kind of improvement any day.

I ran the half here in 2015, the 10K in 2017 and I was all set to do the 10K last year but agreed late in the game to finish line announce the inaugural Hot Chocolate 15K and 5K in Houston.

I had asked Nancy to give that entry to maybe one of the first responders - or a volunteer - so they could run/race that day.

And if you're one to plan ahead, there are dates for the next three years of the Miracle Match Marathon.  They are as follows:

January 25 and 26, 2020

January 23 and 24, 2021

January 29 and 30, 2022

Might as well start building out the tabs on my spreadsheet.  You should too.

2nd annual Young Life Run With Endurance Race Report


Young Life Run With Endurance race director Dan Priest was surprised to see me this morning in Lumberton.

I was honest with him, though.

I told him that his race was my first choice east of I-35.

There were races west of I-35 in two different counties that I have not raced in that I had been spying, followed by a basketball game at Howard Payne University in Brownwood.

One was a trail 10K in Granbury and the other was a road 5K in Copperas Cove.

The reason that I was focused in that direction is because I'm running a race at the Miracle Match Marathon in Waco in the morning.

Without wanting to put a lot of extra miles on my car, my plan was to go to IAH and rent one a vehicle.  However, if I picked it up too early, I'd have been rushing to get back on Sunday to keep it a two-day rental.

Later on Friday, though, would have meant that I would have been staying overnight Friday - and getting in late.  And I didn't want to pay for a hotel that I was going to barely use.

Plus it gave me an opportunity to have dinner with Waverly after being on the road Monday through Thursday for work.

I had checked with the timer of the Granbury race to ensure they were going to have race day registration.

Race Day Event Services, out of Gustine, told me - as I've run many races they've timed - they would get me in if things changed.  (Always pays to make friends with timers.)

So I would have had to have left at 3:15 a.m. at the latest to make it to Granbury in time.

I went to bed around 8:30 p.m. and set the alarm for right at 3 a.m.

I was up, but my heart wasn't in making the four hour and 15 minute drive.

I really wanted to run two 10K's this weekend; however, I did consider parkrun in Terry Hershey Park - as it started at 9 a.m. - and the Seven Hills Running Club monthly club race in Huntsville.  Both were 5Ks, however.

And for the Huntsville race, unless I was just prepared to go on to Waco, construction coming back on I-45 at Rayford / Sawdust would have required a detour to come back to the house.

So it was off to Lumberton, going a different route than I normally have:  the Grand Parkway to Highway 59, north to 105 just south of Cleveland, east to 770 just west of Saratoga, and then further east to 287 in Kounze and about 15 miles south to Lumberton.

Entry fee was reasonable.  $45 cash on race day.  Plus the net proceeds were going to benefit the Lumberton Young Life program.

When I arrived, the start / finish location had changed a little bit so I was a little concerned about the course as I was looking to come over and race.

But knowing that Dan was the RD, I was confident that it would be spot on.  (Feel like it was.)

The 10K course would consist of three out-and-backs.  Normally, that would turn the stomach of many runners, but basically we did just one more than last year because of the change in locations.

I started mid-pack to force myself to go out a little slow as I wanted to see how my right knee was going to respond.  I took a rest this week after I've started to have some pain.

My chiropractor shared with me some strengthening exercises yesterday for the patella and I've done them both days since - and will continue to.

The temperatue was perfect.  40 degrees.  I had waited in my car until about 7:50 a.m., though.

I was going to run with a short sleeve tech shirt on top of a long sleeve tech shirt, but decided to go with a different long sleeve and gloves.

First mile was 8:59.45.  Not too fast, but definitely wanted to try and hold it.

The second mile had a turnaround in it and we came back before we made a left to go the next street over and start the two out-and-backs.

Came through the second mile in 9:01.06.

I bypassed the water station at the turnaround and grabbed water when we made the left-hand turn on the next street over.  There was a water station there to get people coming and going in both directions.

We saw mile 4 first (on the left), but mile 3 soon approached and that mile was 9:17.32

I did the math and realized that I was a little faster than Saturday - when I had done a 28:28 at the first parkrun 5K, but that was to be expected because the section of Terry Hershey Park that we ran at has some slight inclines.

Down to the second turnaround and back, I passed the mile four marker in 9:12.64.

Honestly, this excited me.

So I went from an 8-second count and worked on dropping to seven, then six.

The idea was try to turn my feet over a little faster.

I got water again before making it to the mile five marker in 9:15.07.

One more turnaround, then we came back through a quick "S" in the road, of which I ran the tangents through it, and then two left turns to put us back on the main road towards the finish.

About half way down to the right-hand turn to the finish, a guy passed me.  A sandbagger for sure!

As I saw him pass, I saw a little grey on the right side of his head underneath his hat and I thought to myself that he was probably in my age group.

I was just trying to hold on, though, because I thought as long as mile six was going to be a surprise that I'd have a shot at breaking 57.

We made the right-hand turn and I tried to go a little bit, but not enough.

I passed the mile six marker in 9:05.83 and I don't recall seeing the clock, but I did after going 47.27 seconds between the mile 6 and mile 3 marker.

It was then that I realized that I had a chance to make it in under 27 gun.  (I was 13 seconds going across the start line.)

I thought I had another gear, but I covered the last tenth of a mile in 52.11, which is sub-9.

Finishing time was 56:30.75.

There was a race back in the day that was held at Elkins High School in Fort Bend that might have been my PR.

I had a 58:30 on January 29, 2005 at the 6th annual Mardi Gras Beach 10K in Galveston.

I ran 59:50.59 at Lake Jackson Turkey Trot 10K on Thanksgiving Day 2016 and as recently as November, I covered the Waco Zoo Stampede 10K in 59:06.71, but it might have been 6.14 or 6.17 as the course had to be adjusted because of flooding along the Brazos River.

Here's the bigger shocker:  I had more than a six-minute improvement from last year at the same race!

I ran 1:02:38.02 last year and 56:30.75 today.

Wow.

For the second straight year, I ended up third in my 50-54 age group.

This is a definitely a race that you should do.  Flat as can be.  Well patrolled by three different law enforcement vehicles to slow down traffic on open roads that aren't heavily traveled as it is.

Great family atmosphere - for a great cause - that is not over the top (which for me is a turnoff).

I got a chance to visit for a little bit in the parking lot with Gusher Marathon co-race director Richard James about the article that ran in the Beaumont Enterprise.

He said that as a result of the article he has had some sponsor interest and he's doing everything he can to make the event a go for this year on Saturday, April 6.

Always great to see some familiar faces, including Mike Cabaniss, Jeremy Fermo and Mike Moss.  Didn't get a chance to visit with Mike Moss, but saw him on the course.

Plus there were a few folks that hollered at me on the course, but I didn't quickly recall a name.  If you're reading and that was you, my apologies.

It is always flattering to be recognized and in that area, it is from my announcing the Gusher Marathon for many years.

2019 3M Half Marathon Has Record Crowd, Including 191 Greater Houston Area Runners


On a day where the Chevron Houston Marathon and its companion half, the Aramco Houston Half Marathon, and the standalone 25th annual 3M Half Marathon shared the same calendar space, the Austin race – like Houston - also put more official finishers across its finish line than ever before – surpassing the 6,000-finisher threshold for the first time in its illustrious history.

3,292 women and 2,721 men made up the record 6,013 finishers, up 8.6 percent from last year’s record of 5,630 official finishers.

In its post-race press release, the event said “nearly 7,500 participants registered, the most in event history, for the standalone half marathon.”

Meaning that 19.8% of the 3M Half Marathon’s registered runners were not an official finisher – just under two percentage points less that both of Houston’s Sunday races.

Nearly 200 runners – 191, to be exact – in the 77xxx greater Houston area zip code range grabbed a finishing time as a result of their effort in Austin on Sunday.

Katy’s Evgeny Parkin, 34, and Houston’s Emily Kearney, 23, were the area’s fastest finishers in 1:27:05 and 1:31:25, respectively.

The top area master’s runners were Dickinson’s Leno Rios, 48, and Shenandoah’s Karen Ponette, 49, as they posted times of 1:29:42 and 1:34:05.

Both Kearney and Ponette were in the top two percent of female finishers.

Kearney was second in her 20-24 age group while Ponette was fourth in 45-49.

Houston’s Buddy Brown, 61, was sixth in his division in 1:38:50 while Joseph Norton, 67, also of Houston, was eighth in the 65-69 age group in 2:01:07.

19,000-Plus Official Finishers Cross CHM and Aramco Half Finish Lines For First Time Ever


An annual exercise to determine the human nature of runners who register for the Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon is to look at the numbers of registrants and finishers, using what data is available through the marathon’s website.

Timing is always an issue as data is being refreshed and updated constantly as post-race issues are resolved before the results are declared final and official.

As of Monday afternoon, it appears that the half marathon had a record number of finishers with 12,530 while the marathon had its lowest number of finishers since 2013 with 6,660.

The previous half marathon record was 11,664, set in 2015.

It is the first time in the event’s history that the two totaled more than 19,000 with 19,190 exactly.

18,881 finished the two events combined three years ago in 2016.

And if the race day weather and the preceding forecast had been a bit friendlier, it is easy to believe that the bar would have been set high for future years.

In the marathon, as of Friday, 8:15 p.m., there were 9,080 entries in the marathon’s results search.

Today, there were 7,152 who showed in the same results search with 6,660 official finishers – 4,052 men and 2,600 women.

This would suggest that 1,928 packets didn’t start the race on Sunday – a no-show rate of 21.2%

Actually, that’s not too bad.

Almost seven percent – 6.8%, to be exact – either didn’t finish or finished over six hours.

For the half marathon, Friday’s data revealed 16,545 potential runners.

Just about 13,000 – 12,988 exactly – started the race with 12,530 finishing.

That’s 3,557 no shows in just a slightly higher percentage of 21.5%.

This could have been worse – and might have been if the 29 degrees forecast with double-digit wind totals had prevailed.

Slightly under four percent of the runners – 3.6% -- who crossed the start line didn’t finish or did so in more than four hours.

The initial post-race press release from the Houston Marathon Committee on Sunday indicated that more finished – “a total of 6,930 runners finished the marathon, while 12,986 completed the half marathon on a day that saw runners brave an unseasonable start temperature of 33 degrees with a 12 mph wind”, but that was before the data begins to get scrubbed.

Previous records were determined from viewing page 18 of this year's Chevron Houston Marathon media guide.

Parkrun Houston 5K #1 Race Report


Today started my 17th year of running races – a welcome addition to the most recent one-third of my life here on Earth.

Sixteen years ago, I ran my first race – the 24-Hour Fitness 4 Miler - in conjunction with the then-hp Houston Marathon.

Earlier this morning, I ran my first parkrun 5K, which was held along the trails of Terry Hershey Park.

Parkrun got started on October 2, 2004 in Bushy Park, Teddington, UK and it took two years before the weekly, free and timed 5K ventured to another location.

Parkrun is now in 20 countries and came to the United States in June 2012 in Livonia, Michigan.

In the last six and a half years, there have been 2,413 races in 28 locations with 30,828 unique runners who have run a US-based parkrun 5K.

Even though I’ve run around 800 races in over 300 different north American cities, it is always good to see a familiar face and long-time Houston Strider John Yoder was there.

He said it was more for his two dogs as he will be pacing the 3:05 group at the Chevron Houston Marathon in the morning.

The Houston parkrun website is:  http://www.parkrun.us/terryhershey/

I was most curious how the personal bar code would be scanned, et. al. so I arrived early – 8:20 or so for a 9 a.m. start and volunteers began to make their way to the start area about 8:30 a.m.

In less than 30 minutes, there were about 50 runners gathered to run from near Eldridge Parkway all the way east to Dairy Ashford and back.

Paul, the lead volunteer, welcomed everyone in a very friendly manner and he was accompanied by a number of equally friendly and encouraging volunteers.

Knowing that parkrun got its started in the UK, I certainly wasn’t surprised to hear many British accents among the participants, but any good bloke that can put one foot in front of the other is equally welcome to participate.

The bar code.  What’s that all about?

Well, when you register at the parkrun website, you have a one-time registration and you are assigned a number which generates a personal bar code.

You print this bar code out and take it with you to the race site. 

I was wondering how you were going to keep a piece of paper from getting wet, etc. while you’re racing, but once I finished, I understood how things worked.

When you crossed the finish line, you’re given a “token”, but it is like your rewards card that fits on your key chain for CVS or Walgreen’s.  It indicates your place, which is married up to the time that is kept on another device.

Your place is scanned and then your barcode and that’s how you’ll be listed in the results.

No barcode, no time.  (Of course, if you’re like me, you have a watch that keeps your time – and if timing matches up, the timer’s had a great day!)

I was very pleased how everything went.

I spoke with Paul after the race and I pledged that if they certify the course, I will donate half of the funds to make that happen so people can come out – like Kelly Ramey’s Houston Wellness Project races – and know that they’re running an accurate distance every time they come out.

Regular for-profit, not-for-profit and charity races are great, but events like Run The Woodlands – Houston’s first 5K series that started in 2000, the Houston Wellness Project and now parkrun all fill a bill for runners when you want to go out and “race” – not just run – but don’t want to pay $35, $40 and $45 at the last minute for a 5K.

However, HWP and parkrun needs your financial support as there are permit fees, insurance, etc. so whenever you can donate either on a per race or ad hoc basis, you can help other people get out in a non-threatening environment – and help improve their quality of life.

That’s what Run The Woodlands did for me some almost 16 years ago.

And we have a responsibility to do that for others.

If you’re reading this and running the Chevron Houston Marathon or Aramco Houston Half Marathon, have a great race and I hope to see many of you running the marathon out on the course somewhere!
