I lived in Houston for a few years while I was at Rice University (mid 70's). I remember January as being one of the best months of the year, as far as temp/weather went. I still remember marveling as I rode my bike to campus in a short sleeved shirt.

Houston is not so hot in late January. In fact, it can be downright unpleasantly cold.

I was wondering why it is so popular. Thanks for explaining, Catherine.
It would be sad if I couldn't run a marathon at home.....

I just learned that the Houston Marathon is going to a lottery system of registration. Starting on July 27, at 6 am, you can enter the lottery to run Houston Marathon. It's a 17 day lottery ending at 11:59 pm on Thursday August 12. You will find out if you got in on August 17th.

Last year the registration system crashed because so many wanted to register for this race that they jammed up their system. Houston is FLAT and this is why it's so popular.

I had planned to run this one -- hope I can get in.
