Taco Runner and I woke up at 5 AM…
to make our trip to Houston. I packed a blueberry smoothie and spilled it all over my Coach purse and Taco’s car. It was a WINNING day from the start.
After a few wrong turns, we finally found parking near the Toyota Center for $10 and made a short walk to the George R Brown Convention Center. I had only been there once to pick up a scholarship during high school. It was nice to visit again for this amazing event – the Olympic Marathon Trials!
Hey, George R Brown! Do you remember me?
It was uber cold at the start – 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
The course is an uber boring one.
It began with a 2 mile discourse through downtown Houston, followed by 3 8-mile loops through the city of Houston. I grew up around Houston. It’s nothing too exciting, unless you call smog, bar-b-que aromas, and potholes exciting. I don’t. But the great thing is we got to see the runners FOUR times along the course!!
We found a really nice spot at the mile 10/18/26 mile marker.
