Then I found out that the Governor of Texas, Rick Perry (who has to be in his 50's) ran the half in 1:45. Either that or he had a body double. Maybe if I were a politician I'd be faster. At any rate, here is the only picture that proves I was there.
I ran with a friend of mine, Chris V. This 26 year old spring chicken thought he was going to kick my butt. Turns out it was a classic tortoise and the hare race. Old guy won (disclaimer - Chris hurt his knee pretty badly and still finished in a respectable time).
Chris, if you're reading this, I know that next year I'll have to pay for that comment.
