What a beautiful day it was in Houston on Sunday for the Houston Marathon and Aramco 1/2 Marathon. We had some of the countries elite runners right here in our city running our streets. The beauty of the marathon and the 1/2 marathon is that weather you are an elite or you are someone who is just looking to finish the race, you start and finish at the same spot on some occasions. So while Meb finished in just over an hour and you may have finished in two or three hours you can say that you ran in the same race as Meb.
I would like to congratulate every runner no matter what organization you are with for your accomplishments this past weekend. If you are an avid runner and love the sport I will encourage you to come out and support the Sugar Land Marathon and 1/2 Marathon this weekend.
