2023 Houston Marathon

Jan 15, 2023

full marathon

My pace was slower than I expected. I ran at an average pace of 10 minutes 34 seconds per mile. I was expecting to run  every mile between   9 minutes flat and 9 minutes  30 seconds.


I learned how difficult it is to run in the humidity. I also learned that I need to get in better shape. Houston gave me determination to build on my pace for the 2024 Houston Marathon.

I am very grateful to my sighted guide. She was patient enough to help me finish this marathon. Thanks to her assistance and my endurance I have now run a marathon in every big city in Texas.
