A Texas Beginning


I’ve been a bit out of touch for the last month recently, so I’ll try to get you up to speed quickly and painlessly.  Firstly (beware, there may be no “secondly”), I haven’t been running much, hence the lack of enthralling blog posts to get you through your day.  I’ve started four different posts and gotten sidetracked, but I plan to get back to at least a few of them.  Some small life events have gotten in the way, like driving cross-country with everything we own from DC to Texas, moving into a new apartment, buying a car, and learning a new city.  And what better way to explore a city than run it?  (Admit it, that’s a great segue.)

Well not that great, because like I said, I haven’t been running much, so there hasn’t been much in the way of bipedal exploration.  I got out Wednesday morning to check out a nearby trail in my new shoes.  The key is to get out early, because the temps were going from 60s in the morning to 90s by early afternoon.  And a warm run does not a happy Mike make.  Friday was more of the same.  Both times I got home around 10am feeling like it was the middle of the rain forest, without the excitement of wildlife.  Except some “people” like these local characters do pop up every once in awhile.

Anyway, it’s going to take some getting used to, but I’m excited for the prospects!  Keep an eye out for a future post about, well, the future!
