Shut Out In The Registration Line


Have you ever walked up to register for a race with money in hand - ready to part with your discretionary income - and turn around and walk away?

Probably not.  And before tonight, I don't think I had either.

Five years ago, I did a 5K race on a Friday evening in Deussen Park, which is directly next to the southernmost part of Lake Houston.

It was called the Dusk Dash at Deussen.

I believe that a second race was held in 2014 and then it went dormant.

About a month ago, I received an e-mail that they were going to be holding it this year and it was going to be on Friday, June 1 in the same location.

I didn't sign up early because I have to work on Friday and I didn't know how long my work calls would go.

I had it planned out, however, to leave after the last call was over at 4 p.m. and have plenty of time, even with a little traffic, to register and be there for the start of the race at 6 p.m.

After the race, I would return my rental car at IAH for the week, walk to the EcoPark lot and get my car and then drive home.

I pulled into the parking lot at about 5:05 p.m. and started to walk up.

Having done it five years ago, I didn't expect all of the bells and whistles.

In fact, I was fully expecting to pay $35 - primarily as a donation to the Boy Scouts from Troop 474 and girls from Venture Crew Troop 665 - for nothing more than a bib and maybe a T-shirt and to run/race 3.1 miles in 97 degrees.

I saw a start and finish line inflatable and saw that it was from Kim Bachmeier's FTR Race Management in Galveston County.

I didn't see Kim immediately - or at all - so in hindsight they might have just been renting her inflatable.

There was a tent that looked like where packet pickup and registration activities might be going on.

Even though I saw that FTR was "there", I didn't see any timing mats.  Therefore, as I expected, we'd do manual timing.  I've lots of races that way.

As I approached the tent, I saw a sign for "packet pickup" and nothing for registration.

I had e-mailed to confirm that race day was $35 - and not a surprise of $40.  ($40 would be past my 5K price limit.)

So there was a table close to the finish line where two young ladies had papers with them.  I thought that maybe they were just taking names down, etc., but when I approached and asked, they pointed back to the tent that I was.

There were two young ladies and an adult with a child in her left hand.

Two young boys were getting bib numbers to either run the 1-mile race or the 5K.  Couldn't decipher which.

The adult was putting their names in a laptop computer and even asked the second young man what number he wanted.

As they got done with both of them, I asked, "Is there any type of form to fill out?"

I'm not sure if "No" was said, but the adult said, "If you have a phone, you can go there and register or I can ...."

She didn't try to find somebody to hold the young person in her left arm and possibly say, "Can you hold him while I try to get this gentleman registered?"

But by the time she said, "I can ...," it was a turn-off.  I didn't listen to anything else and made a decision to leave.

I had correct change even.  A $20 bill, two $5 bills and five $1 bills.

I saw John Thames with Spring Action Photos and I tried not to engage too much because I really didn't want to go into any details about why I was leaving.

Could I have gone and registered on my phone?  Yes.

It was PayPal setup with a credit card, but I didn't know if I would have had to pay an additional fee.

And then I would have been directed to fill out a Google form, which I'm assuming was setup to share to her computer.

As I drove towards George Bush Intercontinental Airport, I realized that the two young ladies at the table by the finish line were going to do manual timing, which was perfectly cool.

The numbers weren't going to be that big.

And I completely expected like Run The Woodlands 5K to keep my time manually.

And by registering online, there was an asterisk on the Register button which pointed immediately below to their legal release.

Perhaps if the adult had started with that, I might have been more amenable to the idea.

The bottom line was:  I didn't need to run the race - as I'm running the Heights Fun Run 10K in the morning, but I wanted to.

However, I know a lot of other races that - if race day registration is offered - they will figure out how to receive your money every way possible short of bitcoins.

Marathon Maniacs Get Fast Pass to Chevron Houston Marathon Registration Line


The Chevron Houston Marathon asked on its Facebook page yesterday, May 30, “Who’s registering with us?”

Registration for the January 2019 race opens at noon on Wednesday, June 6, in conjunction with Global Running Day.

Runners can register for $150 for the marathon and $130 for the half marathon through the month of June before the price increases to $175 and $140, respectively, on July 1.

Five days ahead of Global Running Day, the Austin Marathon kicks off its registration with $100 marathon and $80 half marathon pricing through July 17 and the BMW Dallas Marathon, which opened its registration on May 1 at $119 and $99, respectively, will increase its prices by $20 on the marathon to $139 and $30 on the half marathon to $129.

However, in an announcement made last night, May 30, to Marathon Maniac mailing list subscribers (of which I’m on as a former and early Marathon Maniac), the Chevron Houston Marathon is giving Maniacs and Fanatics members in good standing the opportunity to register for five days – in advance of the race’s public registration opening.

“The race is offering five days of early and exclusive registration prior to opening up registration to the masses,” Marathon Maniacs’ e-mail states.  “The half marathon does sell out, so this is your opportunity to guarantee your spot in the race!”

The Chevron Houston Marathon is offering, according to the e-mail, the following:  a.) special Marathon Maniac bib marking, b.) exclusive Marathon Maniac pre- and post-race area for gathering, c.) a tent in the outdoor Discovery Green post-race run club area and that d.) the “clubs will also have a booth at the Expo for all your gear needs!”

The e-mail blast from the Marathon Maniacs implies an ongoing relationship between the race and the organization.

“The Maniacs and Fanatics are partnering with the Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon starting in 2019,” the e-mail stated.  “This will be our 1st race in the new Club Exclusive Events lineup.”

The partnership with the Marathon Maniacs would increase the chances that more out-of-town runners – putting highly coveted heads in downtown hotel beds – before local runners – who didn’t commit early - have an opportunity to grab – and possibly sell-out early – entries at the $150 marathon and $130 half marathon price levels.

This Weekend's Heights Fun Run and Run Houston Clear Lake


A review of the RunSignUp.com registration page for this Saturday's Houston Heights 5K and 10K Fun Run may indicate that the race may experience a slight bump in its numbers, dependent upon registrations throughout the rest of the week.

The Heights Run had 273 for the 10K and 717 for the 5K showing as registered so far.  (This didn't include the 101 who are signed up for the 5K walk, which will be untimed.)

Last year, with the addition of the 10K, the race experienced an overall 26.9% increase in timed finishers (237 for the 10K and 776 for the 5K) over 2016.

This all coming in the face of competition from Sunday's Run Houston Clear Lake, which experienced a 7.3% decrease last year in overall timed finishers (including its Kids 1K that is timed) from 2016 to 2017.

While the Run Houston Series uses the same registration platform, RunSignUp, its participant lookup is limited - for valid reasons - to name combination or e-mail address.

Both races on Monday sent e-mails to their mailing lists offering a discount for registrations by end of day 5/28.  Heights' amount was undisclosed, while Run Houston Clear Lake offered past participants $10 off.  This amounted to 20% off its current $50 registration fee for both the 5K and the 10K.

Heights opened its registration on April 25 by offering its past participants 20% for the first four days.

The courses for both the 5K and the 10K of the Heights Fun Run are certified.  TX17061LAB and TX17062LAB are the certification numbers for the 5K and the 10K, respectively.  A check of certified courses on the USATF web site did not reveal the same for Run Houston Clear Lake.

Can't Everybody Run A Small-Town Race?


As many are aware, I don’t sit still for too long.

I have people tell me they have a hard time keeping up and my response is always, “I’m just trying to stay busy and encouraging others to do the same.”

One of the things that I wish my fellow runners would do more of is to participate in a small-town race.

Not because they can “podium” or take home “hardware”, but just to slow down a little bit and enjoy a race that – more often than not – is put on by a group of people who are passionate about their community and/or a cause … yet still produce a quality race.

I’m not saying that races in large cities don’t.

There’s just something different.

And until you experience it a few times, you can’t separate the hustle and bustle of a large race and the appeal of a small community race.

I’ve run three races so far this weekend and will run in one more in the morning on Memorial Day.

It will be in my hometown of Tyrone, Pennsylvania.  I think I will run past two places – 802 and 809 Park Avenue – during the race where I lived as a child.

Friday night’s ninth annual Mayfest 5K in Fryburg had 111 timed finishers.  This race was about two hours away from where my grandmother lives in Tipton, just south of State College – the home of Penn State University.

Saturday morning’s 12th annual Dr. John Yellenic Memorial Day 5K in Blairsville had 44 timed runners and walkers.

And this morning’s Gabriel Lee Friedline Memorial 5K Run in Schellsburg, just outside of Bedford, had 56 timed runners and walkers.

When I registered in Fryburg Friday night and was offered a chance for a drawing for a prize, I declined.

I was just being polite in that I didn’t want to possibly win anything that I wouldn’t have been able to use.

I explained to the woman that I was from Texas – and up to visit my grandmother about two hours away – and she just couldn’t get over that somebody from that far outside of their community would participate in their race – and visit.

Again, not that I’ve ever not been appreciated for participating in somebody’s race, but this was different – and I don’t think it was just a Pennsylvania thing.

Although, one of the state’s slogans over the years has been, “You’ve got a friend in Pennsylvania.”

Saturday morning in Blairsville, I thought the race started at 8 a.m.

There weren’t too many people around as I walked toward the middle of the park at about 7:30 a.m.
I made the comment, “Everybody will show at the last minute, huh?”

Then I quickly learned that the race – as it was seen on the flyer – would begin at 9 a.m.

I went back to the hotel and walked a little bit around downtown after I returned, but when I finished I enjoyed a conversation with two or three gentlemen about how the race went.

One was with Blairsville’s Parks and Recreation Department and I told them about my involvement at home and that they seriously checked off all of the boxes for a well-produced race.

A good bit of the race was run on the Blairsville Riverfront Trail that was developed along the north side of the Conemaugh River.

It was really a pretty, peaceful place to be and run a race.

This morning didn’t disappoint either.

Bedford is almost an hour south of where my grandmother lives.  To the west, along Highway 30, is Schellsburg and Shawnee State Park.

I had two sets of plans, given that there was a threat of thunderstorms.

If it was continually raining, my plans were to go to church in either Altoona at Calvary Baptist Church (their services were at 10:30 a.m.) or at Northwood Baptist Chapel, which I guess you could say was the very first church I regularly attended as a child.

The latter was also the church in which my parents were married in.

The rains held off – and pretty much didn’t materialize too much throughout the day today; so, it was run that I did.

The loop around Shawnee Lake was 3.4 miles and more than half of it was on a nice trail and the rest was on park roads.

So we walked .3 mile to where the start line was and took off from there.

Before the race, I met a gentleman named David Addison from Norman, Oklahoma.

He was wearing a “Boomer Sooner” bandana that was positioned on his head like those who participate in Spartan races. 

Before I talked to him directly, I said earlier, “As long as they beat Texas.”

He and his wife, Dawn, were running their fourth race in five days in four different states and they were heading to New Jersey to run a Memorial Day race tomorrow.

He shared with me that he lost a lung and his doctor made a comment that he wouldn’t run again.

He said that running a race in all 50 states was his way of proving his doctor wrong.

Wednesday, they were in Stamford, Connecticut for the Boys and Girls Club Corporate Challenge 5K where he ran 28:52 and his wife finished in 32:55.

Yesterday in Richmond, Virginia, he told me they ran the Virginia War Memorial They Gave All 5K and said that it was a very hilly course where the winning time was just 19:37.

He covered the distance in 33:23 while his wife stopped the clock in 37:43.

Today, they finished in 33:01.51 and 37:08.84, respectively.

Unfortunately, I didn’t catch where they raced on either Thursday or Friday.

He said his goal was to finish the Honolulu Marathon in 2020 in under four hours.  He believes that it would be the fastest time in the marathon for a person with one lung.

The course had a little roll to it, a good portion of it was shaded and some was on the roads, but overall it was an enjoyable race.

I had hoped my times would be a little bit better, but hey, it is all about the experience of getting out and doing something different.

Friday -- 9th annual Fryburg Mayfest Fun Run 5K (Fryburg, PA) - 31:06.18
Saturday -- 12th annual Dr. John Yelenic Memorial Day 5K (Blairsville, PA) - 32:40.23
Sunday -- Gabriel Lee Friedline Memorial 5K Run (Schellsburg, PA) - 32:24.91

One more race in the morning, the Joshua House Memorial Day 5K in Tyrone.

It starts at 8:30 a.m. and then I have to come back here to my grandmother’s house, shower and drive to BWI to fly home tomorrow evening.

Another good trip.  Always good to spend time with and around my 93-year-old grandmother, who has lived by herself for a little more than four years after my grandfather passed away in April 2014.

To me, that’s the most amazing thing of all.

Silo District Marathon Observations


Grab a cup of coffee.  This could be a long post.

Probably should bring some background information to the table before talking about what transpired today in Waco at the inaugural Silo District Marathon.

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that when the race was announced I seemed pretty critical.

First, the race announced entry fees of $150 for the marathon and $135 for the half marathon.  They are the second highest in Texas behind Houston - for a brand-new race.  (However, I now have a theory why this is/was.)

That raised my eyebrows a bit.

Yes, I understood/understand what the cause was/is all about.

However, the race made its announcement two days before a marathon in Waco - the seventh oldest in the Lone Star state - put on by a good friend and an incredible contributor to Texas' running and triathlon scene for more than 10 years, without an approved course, was not timely releasing posts on its Facebook event page and hadn't engaged a race production company at that time.

I did an Open Records request with the City of Waco to see what was on the Special Events application permit.  There wasn't a lot on it, and it was such that they originally wanted to do the race on Mother's Day Saturday.

Even though they went out and got Logan Burgess to measure and certify their course (one of the best!) and hired Racing Systems out of Dallas as its race production company, I was generally concerned about the number of first-timers at the longer distances who were running or racing with three months of preparation -- for what could be some old-fashioned Texas heat.

So attending the race today has always been on the calendar.

I was already pretty beat from being up early and announcing yesterday's 14th annual Impact A Hero 5K at Constellation Field in Sugar Land and getting a bit of afternoon rest.

After dinner and reading a little, I went to sleep at about 9:30 a.m. with a 1:45 a.m. wake-up call to begin driving to Waco by 2 a.m., which would put feet on the ground by 5 a.m.

After studying the maps, I parked at a place that I could leave whenever I chose to.

I made my way to what turned out to be the 5K start.  It was a pretty understated setup.

Since I had never really been to the Silos, I could see them off in the distance with all of the lights.

I saw where the finish line was.  They had a similar setup that The Woodlands Marathon uses at its finish on The Woodlands Waterway.

When there, Your Sporting Image's Karen Thibodeaux pulled up.  I helped her get one thing out of her mini-SUV and we chatted for about 5-10 minutes as she got situated.

Announcements began at about 6 a.m.  I didn't initially recognize the voice as it was a bit of a rough opening - something I experience often (like to get the first one out of the way to get into a rhythm), but soon learned it was Austin's Adam Reiser.

Former Rice Owl, an excellent masters runner (just barely though - 41, I think) and a really good announcer.  He does the bulk of the heavy lifting for all of the Run Houston Race Series, Bayou City Half Marathon Series and the Bayou City Tri Series races.

Our styles are different, but definitely respect each other as fellow professionals.

As I saw some of the foreign athletes milling around – and a couple running around scattered trying to get their bib, I also saw former McNeese State athlete Jarrett Le Blanc and his girlfriend.

We had a great conversation and I just kept moving around to get a layout of the start line corral, which was setup in front of the First Baptist Church of Waco.

I had tweeted that the start line setup for both races (marathon/half marathon and the 5K) were pretty minimalist.  However, later thinking about writing this, it made perfect sense because the fencing could be taken down quickly after the half marathoners started to re-open the street so First Baptist could start their church services on time this morning.

I visited with Adam a little bit.  I shared with him who I knew was running and that I had just kept pinging the confirmation question on the getmeregistered.com site to see if I could figure out who was running.

In Sunday morning’s article in the Waco Tribune Herald written by John Werner (and which appeared online early Saturday evening), the Magnolia spokeperson said that he couldn’t speak to individual races.

I call “baloney” on that.  At that point in time, if you’ve shut down registration and you’re not giving any comps (as I was told by a couple of guys who paid the $150 entry fee), then you pretty well know who’s in the field – unless you’re squeezing in a foreign runner at the last minute.

I saw Steve Maliszewski and Tim and Vicki Nolan.  Tim and Vicki were pacing the 3:40 marathon group for Beast Pacing.  Steve?  Just out for another hot race – to counterbalance Boston, of course.

He’s a two-time Badwater 135 finisher.

I snapped a picture of the two and shortly thereafter, Chip Gaines made his appearance.  This was at about 6:40 – 20 minutes before the start of the race.

Again, I’m aware of how everybody is a big fan of the couple, their location, their show and now their restaurant.  So I was interested to hear him speak to everybody before the race.

I was impressed.  He handled it all very, very well.  And you have to know that anybody that’s in front of the camera is generally going to be pretty comfortable speaking easily in public.

I snapped a picture or two and I turned around and there had to have been at least 200-300 people with their phones out hanging on every word he said.

After he got done – and with an inadvertent mic drop, Adam announced that the marathon would start at 7:10 a.m.  I learned shortly thereafter that the reason was because not all of the roads had been barricaded off, according to some individuals who were out riding the course.

So once the gun went off, and the 12-15 elites came running down the street before the rest of the marathoners and then Chip with a TV crew in a cart in front of him.

So my plan was to run to Herring and MLK, which was about two and a half miles away, and tweet some updates from just before mile seven.

I figured I would take about 25 minutes or so and the elite athletes would get there shortly thereafter.  They did, at 35:04.

There was a pack of five African athletes, followed by Jarrett Le Blanc and Ryan Miller, who both spent time in our The Woodlands running community.

The women’s leader came through about four minutes later.

I also stayed at that location until Dallas Baptist University assistant cross country coach Kelsey Bruce came through.  I was tweeting back and forth were her former coach and now employer Jacob Phillips.

I had volunteered to Kelsey that she was running fourth and how far back she was of the leader.

I then ran back across the bridge over the Brazos River and down to street level to see the half marathon leaders pass the mile nine split mat.

Again, passed along the same information, but in that short period of time, the gap between third place – which was taken by the young lady from Austin who won the Cap 10K last month – and Kelsey grew.

I cheered her on, then went back up the hill and started running west on Herring and then south on 18th Street to put myself in the vicinity of mile 20.

The police officer at that intersection said that there was law enforcement there today from a lot of central Texas towns, which showed the breadth of the setup for the race.

I saw the men’s leaders come through, but most importantly Jarrett LeBlanc was seventh at that point and looking pretty solid.

I didn’t end up seeing Ryan Miller and I would learn later on that he has dropped at mile 18.

LeBlanc ended up finishing fourth in 2:22:12 in his first marathon since the United State Olympic Marathon Trials in Los Angeles in February 2016.  That marathon was his first.

The first female marathoner passed just before mile 20 in 2:10 and change – and there was just three seconds that passed between the two of them.

In third two minutes down was former All-American runner at Minnesota, Ladia Albertson-Junkans.

She has been vacillating between roads and the ultras.  (Think Camille Herron.)

At that point, I ran east down 18th Street to Austin where runners were coming from the north to the turnaround on 17th Street.

Afterwards, I ran north on Austin to find my good friend, Nancy Goodnight, and her triathlon group from there in Waco.

Many of them also help Nancy produce her Miracle Match Marathon in late January.

So we stood there for more than two and a half hours cheering both half marathoners and marathoners on waiting for Chip Gaines to come through.

My only criticism is that he had an entourage around him that was completely unheard of.

There were two pairs of motorcycle police officers leading the group and they cleared everybody off the street.

C’mon, nobody is going to jeopardize their well-being to run in to do something to Chip.

He was in genuinely good spirits as he passed us, less than a mile and a half to his goal.

A great job by him – seriously.

To run a marathon, with that tool belt on him and maybe sweatpants of some kind in that heat by that time with cameras in front of him the entire time, he did something that most would not have withstood the pressure of doing.

All in all, a good job was done to produce this race.

I was nowhere near the finish line; therefore, I can’t comment on things in event production that can trip up good race management companies.

I was disappointed that the race didn’t vet its “elite” athletes appropriately and allowed two runners – one male and one female – that had served doping suspensions to run.

The male, Alene Reta, who won the men’s half marathon, was about 16-17 years ago by Ethiopia’s athletic body and the female, Mary Akor, five years ago by the United States Anti-Doping Agency.

Reta:  http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/article/zz/20100821/NEWS/100828062

Akor:  https://www.runnersworld.com/newswire/prolific-marathoner-mary-akor-gets-2-year-doping-ban

My theory on the price, as I mentioned earlier?

Other than the charity aspect and knowing that people would pay to participate in an event WITH Chip Gaines, given he and his wife’s popularity, it was also a price that many close to home may shy away from – and that people would be able to justify finally making a trip to visit the Silos.

I think it is the same strategy that Houston is using with raising its price even more for 2019, making it the most expensive marathon in Texas.

They seem to be aiming to satisfy real or perceived targets from Houston’s Convention & Visitors Bureau for the numbers of heads in beds.

Price out the local folks and make it more of a destination race, like New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles – two of the three who are Marathon Majors.

Do I think there will be a second race?  Based on something I was told, yes.

When will it be?  I wouldn’t be surprised if it moved back to April, but I don’t have any read on that at all.

Only time will tell I suppose.
