2016 Texas Half-Marathon

Here’s my time-lapse video of the 2016 Texas Half-Marathon, shot 1 January 2016 with GoPro Hero 3+ Silver Edition, from crossing the start line through two loops of the course to crossing the finish line, in the Kingwood master-planned community of Houston, Texas — the site of the Texas Marathon, which occurs concurrently on New Year’s Day but covers four loops instead of two.
