As you walk up to the first tee near Post Road, there is a sign that reads: "Course is closed! No play is allowed!!"

But, on a steamy Friday afternoon, the Texas State University golf course was back in business one last time. 

About 30 golfers — spread across the nine-hole golf course — teed off at 2 p.m. last Friday to say goodbye to something that had been a tradition for generations.

One of the best things about the activity of running is that you can do it anywhere at any time.  

You can run on vacations, in other cities, in mountains, forests or far off countries. If you are traveling a pair of shoes and a running outfit takes up very little space in a travel bag.  

Runners are often compulsive about their sport and will occasionally get on a “streak” of consecutive days out on the roads and will do almost anything to keep that streak going.
