5 mi It's my first visit to the very western part of Texas. My hotel room overlooks... Mexico! That red "X" lit sign is the Mexico/USA southern border.

Julie and Frans were working at a water stop … Continue reading DTR Oleta 10 mile Full Moon Trail Race
5mi. After parking at the Alton street location, Paul rounded the corner in his now-repaired Jeep. He said, "C'mon, we are running on the track today, the gates are open."
