Tigers win again

The Terrell Tigers varsity baseball team is all alone in first place with a 5-0 district record.  They were trailing 3-0, took a 4-3 lead, let Poteet tie it at 4, then scored 3 times in the top of the 7th.  Poteet scored once in the bottom of the 7th but it wasnt enough.  The final score Terrell 7, Poteet 5.

Dallas Rock n Roll Half recap

Yesterdays race was awesome.  I didn't run fast, but I finished.  I haven't ran over 6 miles since last Memorial Day.  Mainly because of health issues and the winter always makes is more difficult to get in longer runs when it gets dark early.

Anyway, I started in Corral 12, meaning I thought I would finish in about 2:30 minutes.  I was really thinking 2:45 but I wanted a head start.  I love large races that have a walk up to the start line.  It's always an adrenaline rush.  The race started in Downtown Dallas near City Hall.  It wandered around the streets of Dallas and Highland Park before finishing at Fair Park.  I ended up walking a lot during the second half of the race.  This morning I am barely able to walk, but it's worth it.  The RnR series always has a headliner at the finish line.  This year was the best one yet for Dallas American Authors was the headliner.  They were super!  Sounded great and loud, LOL. 

This was my third Dallas Rock n Roll Half Marathon, and I also ran the San Antonio Half Marathon in 2011.  I'm looking forward to many more.  Follow the link for the Dallas race, and click the events tab to find a race close to you.

#22Kill

Yesterday was the annual Dash Down Greenville run. Thousands of runners and walkers dressed in their favorite St. Patrick's Day gear have fun on Greenville Ave. prior to the parade.

This group of guys ran the race for a purpose. They are part of #22KILL.

Here is some information from their webpage about the group:

What is #22KILL?
The #22KILL initiative is to simply show your ongoing support for the U.S. military and the veterans who have served.

Why is it called #22KILL?
There's a staggering statistic that 22 veterans commit suicide everyday.  It's important that we raise awareness around this fact so that we can all do our part to alleviate this epidemic.

More info here. 


This is how they crossed the start line. I think as the race went on they all ran individually.  They were a lot faster than I was.

Hotel Denison

I would like to be able to go inside this building one day, but by the looks of the outside, the inside may not be in very good shape.  Not much info online for it, it was built in 1884, a fire in 1927 gutted most of the inside.  I think its apartments now.

It's economical

Not a good shot, but I had to act quick. Not everyday you see someone riding a tall unicycle down the road.  This was taken in Denison, TX.
