Terrell, Texas Tuesday Morning Mashup

Prayers go out to all of the people who have lost homes and the firefighters and volunteers who are battling the fires in Texas.

We got a break our break from the heat over the holiday weekend. The high temperature on Monday was 85.  I ran a 10K in the morning and the temperature at the start of the race was in the 60s.  The race was the Labor of Love 10K at Stonebridge Beach Club in McKinney. This was my 3rd 10K, and I beat my best time by 7 minutes,  I finished in 1:12:45.  Still only good for 16th in my age group...out of 16 runners.

The next race is the 9-11 Heroes Run in Dallas on 9-11.

The Tigers football team travels to Mesquite this Thursday night for their opening district game against the Poteet Pirates.  Both teams are 2-0 and scoring an average of 46 points a game.  The Pirates are ranked in the top 5 of most DFW 4A lists.  Make the trip over to Mesquite to support the Tigers!

If you havent visted iHigh yet, what are you waiting for?

Saturday is the Terrell Outdoors Expo & Banquet at First Baptist Church in Terrell.

'Labor of Love' -- great name for a 10K. Here's to cooler temps for you...and safe days/nights for those fighting the wildfires.
