plano balloon festival 5k


jim and i got up extra early today in hopes of taking pics of the 'balloon glow' in the early morning hours of the plano balloon festival... and possibly the balloon launch before or after our race.

Texas weather - scattered storms and high winds - kept both from happening today. but it's ok! had a great time at the race, and we did, at least, get to see a few balloons up close and blown up!

there were quite a few people on the balloon fest facebook site that were upset about no glow and no launch. i think it's most important to regard the safety of the pilots and other attendees instead of complaining when something goes wrong. stuff goes wrong. weather changes. it'll be alright! calm down everyone! =)

where'd the weekend go anyway? next weekend is my first 15k - that's 9.3 miles!! yikes!

There's one thing for sure, you can never tell how the weather will be on the day, here in Perth it can be all four seasons in one day, slightly annoying but what you going to do!! Great early morning atmosphere!

You're so right, Brian. Safety first.
