I finally (and I do mean FINALLY) managed to register for the Houston Half Marathon and the We Are Houston 5k in January 2025.  I started checking the website at 12:02 this morning, and finally at 7:30 it was open.

I’m running the Half Marathon, because this is my first Houston race, the cutoff pace for both the half and whole marathons is 13:45, and once I fly back I’ll have to drive two hours home from the airport.  Were I to try for my first ever full marathon in Houston, I don’t know if I’d be able to make the drive home.

Plus, I’m planning on binging brisket, kolaches, Greek food, and whatever the clerk at Buc-ees lets my walk out of the store with during this trip.

But I am legit! Registered!
