    The old saying line them up and knock them down may be the best way to describe this runners row paradise. If you’re looking for an excellent race put on by excellent runners in an excellent urban area, look no more. From start to turnaround, this 5K back and forth course will keep you focused and knocking out the miles.

    While it’s on a bike path nestled between a park and a man made Bayou (yes, I live in Houston), you’ll get the blessing of trees during sunrise and the cursing of concrete jungles during sunset — high noon offers no protection at all. There are bathrooms across the field at the start, none at the turnaround but a park restroom nestled between two huge shade tree-lined areas with a breeze that’ll make you want to camp out.

    End camping out is what you might want to do if you’re doing the 24 hour run. But don’t pitch your tent just before the turnaround where the aid station is located. They might as well call this place T-HOP (Trail House of Pancakes) because they cook 3 full meals. If I only had known, I wouldn’t have arrived after breakfast and left before dinner.

    California has a ton of races. California had a ton of races canceled. This race was no exception, as it had been canceled twice due to the pandemic. However, after seeing a post in a group on face book that it was on and popping for a third time and was taking place, I jumped on a plan, jumped out a lyft, ran, jumped back in a Lyft and back on a plan all within 12 hours to get California on the map.
    You don’t have to do what I did, but I recommended you ran where I ran if you want a good place to run with a great race of runners on a course that’s full of local company.
