Terrell, Texas Monday Morning Mashup

Practice begins this morning for the football Tigers. They scrimmage against Sulphur Springs on the 20th and open the season on the 27th at Kaufman. The complete schedule is posted to the right.

Check out my Facebook page for 2009 Tigers pictures and 7 on 7 from this year. The picture above is from this years Spring scrimmage.

After watching the local sports coverage of the Cowboys preseason camp for what seems like a year, the Boys finally got to hit someone other than a teammate last night. They have a quick turn around this week, playing Oakland Thursday night.

I didn't realize that Saturdays McKinney Historical Run 5K that Brian and I ran in was started 5 years ago by the son of McKinney, Texas Daily Photo. The search is on for the next race.

I hope that the Fountain 5K, held during the Jubilee, is as large and successful as the McKinney race is when it reaches its 5th year.

I ran 10.5 miles last week. My goal this week is 10.6 miles.

Don't forget, Ham Orchards closes for the season on August 15th.

One word to describe August, HOT. So far this year we have had 9 days over 100, already matching last years total. The most in the last 5 years was 2006 when we had 19 days over 100. Looking at the 10 day forecast, we should get close to that number.
