Surprisingly, I will run no races this weekend. (The one race in the area is charging $30 raceday for a 5k.) Instead, some Brak Pak folks are meeting up for an 8 miler in the morning - hopefully along the much-awaited new stretch of the River Walk. It actually has locks for the little boats and everything. Eventually, we will be able to jump on the River Walk at Brackenridge Park and run the river all the way down through the Missions! The "museum reach" section officially opens with festivities beginning tomorrow at 9, so we are hoping to beat the public and check out the new digs.
Then, on Sunday, marathon training officially kicks off at Fleet Feet Sports. The first run is short, hence the Saturday longer run, but I guess it is time to get back on the training schedule.
