Terrell, Texas Monday Morning Mashup

The 11th Annual Tri-Rock Triathlon was held yesterday in Rockwall.  Celebrated Images was the official race photographer. They have their pictures already posted from the race.

College football starts this week, with games starting on Thursday night through Monday.  The big game of the first week will be held Saturday in Arlington at Cowboys Stadium when #3 Oregon takes on #4 LSU. 
Other interesting match-ups include TCU vs. Baylor and Boise St. vs. Georgia. 

The varsity football Tigers (1-0) travel up the road Friday night to take on the Greenville Lions (0-1).  The Tigers beat the Lions last year 42-7, and the Lions lost last week to Little Elm 41-7. 

We got a brief rain shower in Terrell at 6AM this morning, but the temperature was 91 degrees. We might get a break later this week,  if the WFAA seven day forecast holds. 

We didn't have a race on Saturday, so we ran the Highway 66 bridge in Rockwall, 2 miles each way.  The next race is a 10K on Labor Day in McKinney.  Its called the Labor of Love and it takes place at the Stonebridge Beach Club. We have races scheduled for every weekend in September.  

After Sept. 1, Texas highways will no longer have different speed limits during the day and at night. The law also lets transportation officials raise limits to 75 mph in remote areas. Here is a look at some of the different laws passed in the last legislative session.

Jim, I guess I'm just a wimp because I cannot imagine competing in your hot Texas weather. Hope no-one got heat stroke! Your top photo is amazing with the water drops. Very cool!

Really, really like that first shot. Well done! It almost looks like the water is popping from the heat.

It's super HOT there! I really like the top photo of the runner dumping a drink over his head!
