2009 run "before picture" on 28 February 2009. There was a record turnout of over 10,000 runners this year split between a 5k run and the 10k. The Rodeo Run official web site has information and links to the results. A cool front came through Houston on Friday night and the weather was cool and windy. Temperature was in the mid 50's (12C) but it was dry.

I cross the line about half way through the video and I raise my arms as I cross the line so you can see me. If you are wondering why the time is showing over 57 minutes, that is the time from the race start. It took me almost 3 minutes to get to the START line. Actual timing is by electronic chip which registers as you cross the start, half-way and finish lines. You can see the orange chip attached to my right shoe in the photo.
