OK so I had to do a plug for the race I am directing this weekend at the University of Houston Clear Lake. Sign up is still going on this week just email firstname.lastname@example.org for details. The 5K will be entirely run on the UHCL campus and there will be plenty of refreshments and awards in 5 year age groups. There is even a special couples category for Valentine's day. The fastest couple will receive an award. This race was formerly known as the 5K 4 Fireworks last year. The theme has changed but it is still the same great course. We are expecting a bigger crowd this year and it should be a good time. I have gotten the opportunity to learn a whole other side of the racing world. This afternoon was spent learning race timing software and how to generate results. Being involved in this project has made me really appreciate the work that goes into organizing races. Next time you are at the races remember to thank the race director and/or volunteers.
