I went to downtown Fort Worth to pick up my packet for the Cowtown Half Marathon race tomorrow. It seemed like déjàvu from last year; cold, drizzling, and gusty winds. Last year I went during rush hour. This year I went in early, around lunch time. There was a lot less people, but still a noticeable crowd, with little wait time in line.
While I was there, I also registered for the Rock 'n' Roll Dallas Half Marathon to be run in two weeks (March 14th, 2010). Registering with them at Cowtown provided me with an added benefit of an official Rock 'n' Roll Dallas Half Marathon long sleeve fleece jacket.
I've also registered for the Heels and Hills Half Marathon race scheduled for May 1st, 2010.
I ran an easy 2.06 miles in 16 minutes and 08 seconds at a 7:50 minute per mile pace. The weather was overcast, with humidity at 89%. The temperature was around 42 degrees.
I started the morning run in shades, as the sun was shining bright. On the way back the clouds completely covered the sun rays.
