I ran the USA Fit Sugar Land Half-Marathon today in a time of 1:42:36 (7:50/mi pace). I placed 27th out of 806 overall and 9 out of 64 in my age bracket of 30-39. It was 20 degrees with very little wind. Some of my water cups at the water stations had ice in them. There were also a couple of icy spots (from the sprinklers going off at 6am!) that everyone had to be careful of. It was a fast, flat course. But very wide open--it would be difficult if there was any wind at all. Eric Stotzer (fellow TIer and multiple-Boston-qualifier) joined me for the final four miles. Thanks Eric!

Sugar Land got about 2" of snow -- although it looked like less because it kept melting.

An Okinawan traditional drumming dance, called Eisa, was perfomed by Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko - Texas, at the Houston Dragon Races at Fluor on Saturday, October 17th in Sugar Land. "Ryukyukoko Matsuri Daiko's choreography is a dynamic blend of traditional Eisa and Karate forms with contemporary influences incorporating both traditional folk music and modern music."

An A-10 Thunderbolt II (aka "Warthog") at the Sugar Land Regional Airport

This is a closeup of the A-10's 30mm gun. A10's are used in Iraq and Afghanistan. The A-10 entered service in the late 70s, and will likely be operational until at least 2028.

Alex is giving the thumbs-up in a WWII-era AT-6A, a trainer aircraft used to train military pilots during the time period. This particular plane still flies. The engine has 9 cylinders and displaces 1,344 cubic inches (22 L).

The ISS and the Space Shuttle Endeavour. View to the northwest.

They went almost directly overhead. Stack of two images. The Space Shuttle is the fainter streak and had undocked from the ISS a few hours earlier in the day.

Alex really liked the performance.
