Come Run With Me

I went for a snowy run the other day on the trails behind our house and created a video to share the beauty. Video is taken along the East Boulder Trail at the Gunbarrel Farms trailhead, behind our house. Maybe the videos are a little too much sharing, a little too much self-promotion, but that’s […]

Everything Old is New Again

So I mentioned I was kind of excited about running again. Unfortunately for you, that means running log posts. Like this one. <NelsonVoice>Haha!</NelsonVoice> Actually, I don’t have much to report.

Autumn falling

San Antonio marathon in four days and as always it’s a crap shoot. I’ve never been more fit than I have this fall, but there’s also the weather — expected to be in the mid 60s at the start, humidity, chance of showers … bring it on madre. Of course the last time I ran […]
