04/21/2012 – Madisonville (Madison County) 10K

Madisonville was a one day event sponsored by the Brazos Valley Trailblazers out of College Station, TX.  Madisonville is the county seat of Madison county.  It is my 148th county.   This was a nice walking event in the city that claims to be the “Mushroom Capitol of Texas”.  It is at the junction of I-45 and Texas State Highway 21.  The walk started at a pavilion in the Lake Madison Park.  The event went on park roads along the east side of the lake and then followed city streets around town and to the city cemetery were we passed the grave of Job Collard who was a hero at San Jacinto and was the owner of the land grant on which Madisonville was built.  Returning to the lake we took a hiking trail over the dam and around the lake on the west side through some nice woods and back to the start at the pavilion.
