Crazy weekend for runners in Texas! Saturday, there's the Texas Half in Dallas, then Sunday we have the Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Half Marathon in Houston and the 3M Half Marathon in Austin.
Last year, all three were different weekends and easier to get into! This year, Houston Marathon was a lottery, and 3M Half did a great job selling out early!
So with them being different weekends last year, in 2010 I managed to run the Aramco Half in Houston mid-January, then 3M Half Marathon the next weekend, and then Texas Half the last weekend of January. That's halfs in Houston, Austin, and Dallas all in one month.
My race reports are out here on the blog in case anyone finds it helpful...

3M Half Marathon race report
Texas Half Marathon race report
The Houston Half Marathon one is particularly detailed with race compliments and criticisms from my views as a runner and as a Dallas area race director, along with a bit of a blow by blow of the course in sections.
Anyway, just wanted to put that out there for anyone looking for reviews of any of those races this weekend. I'm jealous as I can't run any of them at this point in my postpartum recovery but wish all runners fast feet and fun times this weekend!
