The ABB 5K was an incredible experience; it is held in conjunction with the Houston Chevron Marathon. This was my second 5K and I was hoping for a little better results, but the fact of the matter is I completed a 5K and I am proud of that. There were 3183 runners, so the streets always seemed a bit crowded. I felt like I couldn't keep a steady pace because I was slowing down due to the person in front of me or I was having to speed up to pass people. The weather was approximately 70 degrees and humid, very humid. The roads were wet, which means some spots were pretty slick. Although rain threatened the race, it held off, and I was very grateful for that.
