Wednesday@Valhalla (08/27/08)

Yesterday night I had lots of fun at Valhalla. It also happened to be my birthday but being a poor graduate student I didn't put a free tab there. May be on my next birthday, :) And, here is the business as usual aka Pictures.

Marathon viewing party@Fox Grills

Eddie did a wonderful job in organizing Marathon viewing party at Fox Grills near Galleria. Samuel Kamau Wanjiru of Kenya set a new Olympic record of 2:06:32. I took a few pictures from my cellphone. The quality of the pictures is little inferior but they do convey the mood at the party, :-)

What to do on the hottest weekend of the year? Run a 5K of course!! Bayou City Road Runners are made of tough stuff after all!! The Maribelle's on the Bay 5K in Seabrooke is an annual favorite excursion. We always know what to expect- heat and humidity for sure - but the course is right next to the water and there is always a breeze from the bay. The best part: the pizza, cold beer and camaraderie waiting at the end! Only thing missing: 5 year age groups (hint to organizers).
