WHERE ARE WE GOING?
Thursday, Oct. 11
Santa Fe 5K
NO REALLY, WHY?
This is the final leg of the three-race series that included Dash Down Greenville and Too Hot to Handle.
WHO ELSE IS GOING?
After last year's inaugural race drew 519 finishers, there should be twice that many this year. Where will they park? That's an excellent question and one we can all agree with.
WHAT'S THE FORECAST?
Hard to believe given this weekend's cooldown, but it should be a shade over 80 degrees with a small chance of a thunderstorm.
HOW DO WE WIN?
The obvious comparison is the Katy 5K, which I ran in 19:50 in May. The temperature will be about the same, and the course is similar, with a meaningful hill in the early going leading to a steady downhill return trip. If I beat 19:50, I'll consider that a win.
