Earth Day 5K

This past weekend I ran an Earth Day 5K with some of my friends here in Houston. It's a little early for Earth Day (April 22nd) but let's just call April Earth month and roll with it(I changed the blog background to recycle symbols for April aka Earth Month). The race started at Discovery Green downtown, and there was a huge Earth Day festival going on as well. The race was 'green event' where you were encouraged to carpool (we did), recycle your old sneakers (Erin did), water during the race was served up in biodegradable cups that were composted after the race, and the t-shirt for the race was made from organic cotton. We had a great time and would have liked to stroll the Expo more but the race was so early that most of the vendors weren't set up yet. Many thanks to Erin for finding the race and asking us to run with her! Here is our sweaty post-race group pic:
