The Battling Bloggers Weren't As Busy

In fact, even some well-made plans went awry as Sarah Graybeal was signed up for Sunday's Battle of San Jacinto Triathlon. Having been sick earlier in the week, she decided instead to volunteer for the folks with Tri On The Run, who were organizing the race.

Our lead male runner during this year's Relay, Tommy Stunz challenged the Rocky Hill Ranch 50K course in Smithville on Saturday and returned to Lake Jackson with a 6:18:07 finish, good for 27th out of 72nd place. (Rich Martucci, 52, who was on the "Corpus Christi Roadrunners" during the Texas Independence Relay, finished seven places behind Stunz in 6:41:18.)

Like Stunz, Ken Johnson, 66, traveled west as well -- to the Cornerstone Cougar 5K in College Station. Running one of his better 5Ks of the spring, Ken finished in 31:47 and took second place -- out of three -- in the 60-69 age group.

Captain Jon Walk, 41, decided to adventure north instead of west to participate in four separate 5Ks in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. He ran a 5K in Fort Worth Friday night, followed by races in Aledo and Pilot Point on Saturday and the Rise and Shine 5K just north of downtown Dallas on Sunday.
