Urban Dare 2011

Brian and I ran the Urban Dash yesterday in Dallas.  I wasn't prepared for the heat.  Near the end of the race I had to stop and sit down.  I though I was going to hit the ground face first.  I ended up losing 5 pounds.  Thankfully, I got up and finished.  Our time was 2 hours 35 minutes.  We finished 49th out of 166 teams.  This was at the word dare.  Brian has a dare posted on his site.  The race course was approx 6 miles.

In a reversal from last year when all district 15-4A baseball teams were swept out of the playoffs in the opening round, all four teams moved into the area round this year.

Forney defeated Hutto and will play Hallsville next.
Game 1: Thursday 7:00 at Forney
Game 2: Saturday 1:00 at Hallsville
Game 3: after Game 2 if needed

Red Oak won twice yesterday against Bryan Rudder and advance to play Texas High.
Game 1: Thursday 7:30 at Red Oak
Game 2: Saturday 2:00PM at Texas High
Game 3: after Game 2 if needed

Waxahachie needed 3 games to get past Hendrickson and earned a match up with Sherman
Game 1: Friday night in Waxahachie

Mesquite Poteet finished Connally in a one game playoff.
The Pirates will play the Whitehouse in the area round.

Happy Mothers Day!

Congrats on finishing! What was the temperature at race time? I ran an infamous 5K in Tampa in July a couple of years ago and felt exactly how you described. It was in the high 70s at race time and so humid we might as well have been running in a sauna. Aaah....good times!

Jim, I am so thankful that you were able to sit down until you were ready to go again. Looks like a lot of people are sitting down. Is this at the finish?

Glad you enjoyed the guys bouldering. Even if I were strong enough to do such a think, which I most certainly am not, I am way too afraid of heights to want to me on a wall.
