FOR EXTRA FUN THERE IS AN OPTIONAL VERTICAL DIVERSION SECTION CALLED JACOBS LADDER.  IT COMES WITH JALAPENOS, BACON AND BEER AT THE BOTTOM AND TOP. TOTALLY WORTH IT. YUP ALL THIS FUN  AT MILE 23.

 
RICH PEOPLE LIVE IN WACO ALONG WITH THE BAYLOR BEARS
 
 
HERE IS A DOWN HILL WITH A GIANT LAKE

WE RAN ACROSS PART OF THE LAKE BEFORE ASCENDING ANOTHER HILL

 
 
MILE 23 LOOKING DOWN THE LADDER

 
 
 
DOESN’T THIS LOOK STEEP ?

WOULD YOU LIKE A SALT PILL WITH THAT JALAPENO ?

THE FINISH PIC

MILE 5
CAPTION: WHAT WAS I THINKING ?
 
 
IN 2014 I DID THE 13.1, IN 2015 I UPGRADED TO THE FULL AND FOR 2016  IT IS ULTRA TIME- 50K -WHICH I THINK IS 31 ISH. FORTUNATELY THERE IS AN EARLY START SO SINCE THE RACE IS IN LATE  JANUARY I HOPE THAT WOULD MEAN PERHAPS CHRISTMAS TIME.
WACO DOES HAVE SEVERAL GREAT SIGHTS.
  • THE ELIZABETH AND ROBERT BROWNING LIBRARY AT BAYLOR HAS WONDERFUL STAINED GLASS WINDOWS
  • THE DR PEPPER MUSEUM IN THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL DRUG STORE WHERE DR PEPPER WAS INVENTED
  • THE TEXAS RANGER HALL OF FAME
  • THE FINISH LINE ON THE BRIDGE OF THE MIRACLE MATCH RACE
THIS RACE IS A HOOT WITH BRAGGING RIGHTS. GO BIG OR GO HOME.
