Running with Moe

Runners have a favorite race that they try to make every year.

Runners also have preferences in the type of races that they like to enter. 

I used to like the smaller city or town races that were celebrating some special event: Dime Box Homecoming, Pflugerville’s Fiddler Frolic, Luling’s Watermelon Thump and Lockhart’s Kiwanis Rodeo are examples of some of the smaller venues that had a fun crowd of runners and the after race festivities were always fun to take part in.

EUGENE, Ore. — Texas State’s relay team had one goal going into this week’s NCAA Outdoors Track and Field Championships: Match or possibly better its fast time during the preliminary.

As it turned out, the Bobcats would have needed to do the latter to advance into Friday’s final.

Texas State’s quartet of James Hilliard, Anthony Johnson, De’Marcus Porter and De’Quad Binder fell short of accomplishing that feat as the foursome completed its semifinal 4x400 race in 3:08.48.
