I often forget how close Houston is to the beach, really should try to remember these things...
A group of us headed on down to Surfside (not too far from Galveston) for a day in the sun and water. The weather was absolutely perfect, we even got in the water. Later in the afternoon we had a shrimp boil, and what's a boil without some beer and sangria?!
We had an absolute blast!
This is the second year that Lauren and I have run the Lone Star Stampede, put on in Houston by the Texas Exes. Last year was the first timed race I ever ran, which began a spark for more races (including another 5K, 10K, and half marathon!)
This year we beat our overall time by 4:09, so we were very pleased. It was also cool to see everyone in their UT gear!
