2020 Weekend 2 Racing in College Station and Temple


After opening the 2020 year by running the half marathon at the Texas Marathon in Kingwood on New Year's Day and then not running a race the following weekend (as Waverly and I traveled to Fort Worth), I had the chance to get back to running races this past weekend.

Two were available logistically to me; therefore, I ran two.

My first plan was to go to Keller - in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex - to run the new parkrun 5K that was started there about three months ago. 

It was a 9 a.m. start and I could leave Spring at 4 a.m. and get there in plenty of time.

However, during the week, I saw that the Martin's Mill girls basketball team, which is located just north of Canton in east Texas, has more than a 100-game winning streak going and they were scheduled to play at home on Friday night at 6:15 p.m.

So I considered going there and then driving into the Metroplex and spending the night there.

One thing, though, was for certain:  there was a 2 p.m. 5K and 10K in Temple that was put on by the City of Temple's Parks and Recreation Department and I planned to be there for it.

The first double of 2020.

As you'll remember, a line of weather, which eventually took 11 lives across the country this past Friday through Sunday, made its way through the greater Houston area and up into the Metroplex and east Texas.

The system, which was mild Friday night in our area, ended up producing snow in DFW and at first I saw a notice cancelling the Keller parkrun, but I noticed in the 24-48 hours to follow that they had indeed run the free weekly race.

Nonetheless, I decided to heed the best weather warnings and chose to stay at home, but I had found an alternative -- and there were many.

I could have done two 10Ks, stayed at home and run a race that I had been expected to announce - the Choco Loco 10K, but there's not much more in life that I hate than running on Allen Parkway (and paying to do so!)

My travels took me to College Station to take part of the third annual Thin Mint Sprint 5K, which was put one by some local Girl Scouts in the Brazos Valley area, hosted by American Momentum Bank and run in a nearby neighborhood.

The entry fee was either $30 or $35, which netted me another tech shirt, but I quickly retreated to my car as the relatively balmy weather in Spring had turned to cold and blustery in College Station.  (Reminiscent of the 2015 edition of Texas 10 College Station.)

It was great to know that Race Day Event Services, out of Hamilton, was timing the race.  Kate Denning and her husband (I really need to learn his name) make up that company and I've said many times that one of the best things that they do as timers is that they promote the races they time through the use of a semi-regular e-mail.  As a result of that e-mail, I have run races in many new cities in Texas - which are close to them and not to me!

We were a minute or two off the mark as the finishers in the 1K delayed things a little bit, but Kate got us off to a quick start (and am assuming they did a National Anthem before the kids race).

The start of the race directed you right at the tall American Momentum Bank building and around the circle drive to the left.  A left turn at 3 p.m. and then a right took us across University Drive on our way to a winding trail that got us out to a park where the half way point was.

This was a fairly simple and almost out and back course.

The cool temperatures and the brisk wind definitely encouraged you to keep moving and it paid off.  Plus, the cold weather - for me - seems to give me the opportunity to uptake oxygen as quick as ever.

When we made the return back onto the grounds of the back and before we started around the circle to the finish, I passed a guy that had a Santa Hustle (the race in Galveston) hoodie on.

I remembered encouraging him as I passed him, but I think the encouragement caused him to pick up his pace a bit and quite frankly, I was concerned that he might pass me.

When I got to the bottom half of the circle and could see that the clock had just turned to 29 minutes (I had a little offset time from when the gun went off until I crossed the start line), I knew that I was going to have a pretty good time.

29:15 and second place in my 50-59 age group, out of 11 finishers.

I didn't stay for the awards as 1.) it was cold and 2.) I wanted to get breakfast since I was heading to Temple to run a 10K at 2 p.m.

I spoke a little bit to Kate and she told me that the race that I did in Dublin in June might be looking for an announcer.  I have to get her a quote.  It's a small race.  I may do it as I really enjoy being around her and her husband and how they manage and time a race.

I got a great breakfast recommendation from David Fuller, one of my cohorts in the Lone Star Christian Sports Network (LSCSN).  He gave me a few, but I chose Stella Southern Cafe in College Station.

I had the full order of Bananas Foster and it was really, really good.  They got the food out pretty quick because they have limited seating so I can imagine their goal is to turn the tables as quickly as they can without giving folks a bum's rush.  I wanted to get on the road; therefore, I helped their cause in a nice way.

Off to Temple it was and I got to the race site on the far west side of the city early for the Arches Resolution 10K -- so early that they were starting to set the start/finish area up.

The start and finish location are on the west campus of Baylor Scott and White Medical Center and includes a portion of the Pepper Creek Trail before heading onto some sidewalks further north and west of the hospital.

The race was produced by the City of Temple's Parks and Recreation Department and they always do a pretty good job as I ran their half marathon a couple of times that they used to produce in December.

After registering I went back to my car until about 10-15 minutes before the start. 

I then saw and chatted a bit with Andrew Wolfe with PhotoWolfe.com - a really good photographer in the central part of the state.

Right before the start, I realized that I forgot my gloves in the car and as I was running to it or back from it, the gun went off.

I started about 35-40 seconds behind the leaders, but quickly worked my way into place as quick as I could as we went straight and then made a right and a left to get to a connector path that put us on the Pepper Creek Trail.

We took a right and went all the way north, I believe, to Hilliard where we took a left to go further west, but when we went right again to go north, this is where I realized that we would race on some pathways that I hadn't before.

And that it was going to be hilly compared to Saturday morning's race -- or rather some long inclines.

I quickly got into oxygen debt in these stretches, running too fast to maintain a steady pace and then having to back off to walk, repeatedly.

I made the turnaround in 29:52 and the return in 30:04, which gave me a sub-one hour 10K of 59:56 as long as the distance was accurate. 

It felt it, but you just never know as there were no mile markers to even get a feel for things.

However, as I checked in the early part of this week (as I'm finishing writing this on Friday), it mapped by following the streets on mapmyrun.com as 6.16 miles.

I followed the race up with seeing a basketball game in my 73rd college gymnasium or arena in Texas as I watched Temple College defeat visiting Weatherford College before driving back to Spring.

All in all, it was a good day trip that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Question is:  Who wants to come along for the next one?  :-)

2020: What's The Biggest Need?


For those of you who follow along, how can I best contribute to the sport(s)?

Or if I don't contribute at all and just do my own thing, is that the best?

Announcing, while I've enjoyed it and think that I do it fairly well, has worn thin on me in some ways.

Being slow paid by a few producers over the years has been a major discouragement.  To me, it tells me that I'm really not appreciated and am just simply taken for granted for.

I still laugh remembering a race director, who I was working for, tell me to my face that "announcers are a dime a dozen", but later asked me if I was interested in announcing another one of their larger events.

I knew exactly what it was all about:  I could save them money from their current situation.  They were looking for the hometown discount.

If they would have come to the table and said, "We'd like for you to announce for us and here's how much we would propose paying you."  I might have taken it seriously.

(There have been a few producers whose money is the best in town and Texas:  Andy Stewart, Robby Sabban, Bill Gardner, The Woodlands Township and Jana Landry, to name a few.)

However, I did ask a timer that I know this summer the following question:  "If I charged more (my services are fairly cheap), would I desire doing it more?"

Their answer was basically that you either want to or you don't.

I basically concur with that notion, and some of it was that I just wasn't having any fun any longer in certain cases, not because of people but just situations.

Do you enjoy race reports from the different places that I choose to run in?

Do you want me to report on individual races?

Let me know.

I enjoy contributing, but I have to feel like I'm moving the ball forward in meaningful ways.

One thing that I'm thankful for is that I still get asked a lot about various items, which I treasure and genuinely appreciate it.

That said, I appreciate your friendship and support.

Let's see what lies ahead for 2020.

I have a Greater Houston Run Challenge idea.  Would you like to see it?  :-)

Terry Hershey parkrun #51 notes


After finishing second to Peter Lawrence in parkrun #50 on December 21, Andrew Johnston returned to his winning ways as he grabbed his 31st win in 33 appearances at Terry Hershey parkrun.

Junior runner James Boutte, Jr.'s first-ever parkrun saw him finishing second in a time of 18:56.  He was the first of 27 new runners to Terry Hershey parkrun on Saturday.

Graham Dwyer was the third overall male in 20:45 with a little international parkrun tourism at play as all 30 of his prior parkruns have been in the UK, with 23 of them coming at Tonbridge parkrun.  Wife Lesley joined in for first Terry Hershey parkrun (12 parkruns in total) with a 29:15 finish.

Alison Matthews was the first female finisher in her fifth consecutive race at Terry Hershey parkrun.  Alison has 43 career parkruns, including appearances at 15 different parkruns in the UK -- and wins at 13 of them.

Adam Eiler, fifth overall, completed his 25th parkrun, including 24 this year at Terry Hershey.  The other came this summer at the Centennial, Australia parkrun.

Darren Oxspring led his son, Thomas, across the Terry Hershey parkrun finish line by 38 seconds to finish seventh and eighth overall.  It was Darren's 25th parkrun at Terry Hershey and Thomas is one finish away from 15 at Terry Hershey.

Gita Kulkarni was the second overall female finisher in 24:20, her second race at Terry Hershey parkrun in the last three weeks.

Edward Montana, Mark Coleman and James Barry finished 14th through 16th and within 10 seconds of one another - and each is now one away from an official and unofficial milestone.  Ed's next race will be his tenth overall while Mark and James are looking for their 20th and 15th parkrun finishes respectively.

Stephen Pink trailed all three of them, but he posted his 25th finish at Terry Hershey with a time of 26:53.

Clint and Nicolas Hutchinson finished in 18th and 23rd, respectively, with times of 27:07 and 28:30, but it leaves Clint one parkrun shy of 15 while Clint is sitting at 16 to close out 2019.

Paul Broadhead was the first of seven new personal bests on Saturday with his mark of 28:32.  His next Terry Hershey parkrun finish will be his 10th.  He has five other parkruns to his credit - four at Daventry, UK and one at Sale Water parkrun in the UK.

Eva and Andrea Williams finished within a second of each other and completed their 20th and 21st parkruns at Terry Hershey as they are both approaching their 50th park run.  Eva, running in the 15-17 age group, has 46 - not even counting her six junior park runs in the UK - and Andrea has 47.

Irma Machac grabbed her fourth new personal best of the year with a run of 29:53 as she has lowered her time from her first parkrun of 31:43.

Kaiya Pino and Claire Foster were the next two runners who recorded personal bests in their second Terry Hershey parkruns.  Kaiya was 38th overall in 31:16 while Claire finish three positions and 24 seconds behind in 31:40.

Peter Foster's next parkrun finish will be his tenth.  He finished his sixth Terry Hershey parkrun to go with his three this March at the Portsmoth Lakeside parkrun in the UK.

Barry Chambers posted his personal best two weeks ago in his second Terry Hershey parkrun, but dialed it back a little bit to run with his granddaughter, Mia, for her parkrun finish in 32:17.

Father Paul and daughter Kristen Schank finished together in 32:18 on Saturday.  While it was his 17th Terry Hershey parkrun finish, it was Kristen's seventh -- and the sixth that she's run with her father.

Shima Gammack and Haitao Zhang finished four positions apart - 48th and 52nd in 32:26 and 34:25, respectively, but the two ladies will completed their 25th and 20th parkruns on their next finish, likely at Terry Hershey parkrun where they've run all 44 of their combined races.

Paul Dickerson completed his 30th career parkrun on Saturday, while 22 of them have come at Terry Hershey and one at the brand new Bear Creek Greenbelt parkrun in Keller, Texas.  Of course, Paul has volunteered 40 times, including 13 as run director and 17 as results processor.

Terry Hershey parkrun #50 Notes


These are some notes that I compiled from the results of the parkrun at Terry Hershey Park on Saturday, December 21, 2019:

+  Saturday, December 21, 2019 was Terry Hershey parkrun's 50th race.  Of the 28 USA parkruns who have had 50 races, the 75 finishers was the fifth highest ever.  (In case, you're wondering, 93 is the mark, set by College Park two years ago, when they hosted their 51st race.)

+  The 15 volunteers Saturday were the most ever, surpassing the 14 the race had the week before.  (Only Jamaica Pond and Kensington had more volunteers for their 50th race, 23 and 17, respectively.)

+  First finisher Peter Lawrence ran his first parkrun ever, finishing in 16:56, just eight seconds off of Andrew Johnston's event record of 16:48.  Johnston, who has won 30 Terry Hershey parkruns, was second in 17:01.

+  First female finisher Alison Matthews won her fourth race - in four tries - at Terry Hershey with a personal best time of 20:14.  Two of those four wins, she was the first finisher for the entire race.

+  Third place finisher Edward Katz joined us on Saturday after running the Jamaica Pond parkrun in Boston six times since 11/2/19.

+  John Yoder, who finished fourth overall, is one finish shy of his 25th Terry Hershey parkrun.

+  Charles Tremlett, sixth in 20:41, completed his 15th parkrun for 2019, including 13 at Cornwall, NZ and the other at Taupo, NZ.

+  Darren Oxspring completed his 25th career parkrun - all this year, with 24 coming at Terry Hershey and the other finish was at Torquay, Australia.

+  Oxspring and Francis Ogbonna, who finished immediately behind him, both earned a new personal best for their second consecutive race.

+  Peter Haasz, 14th overall, like Katz, joined us after running six Parkville, Australia parkruns since 10/26/19.

+  Andrea Williams, who ran her 20th Terry Hershey parkrun on Saturday, is just four away from 50 career parkruns.

+  Six consecutive runners - in places 22 through 27 -- ran new personal bests -- Isaac and Jesse Harvey, Mark Coleman, Barry Tyther, Clint Hutchinson and James Barry.
