Well, I was when I tried to roust myself out of bed, but I received a message from Ruben to run the North Salado Creek Trail at 8. But I made it there and it was a nice run. It's a prepared trail from the South end of McAllister Park, through Ladybird Park, through Los Patios - then you have to hike a bit under Loop 410, and we turned around at Tobin Park. Part of the route was boardwalk, which was a little frosty/slippery heading out, but nice coming back. Wildlife seen: 2 cats, 3 deer (closely seen by my buddy, Johnny O).
After that, I headed to Empty Bowls at the SW School of Art. You purchase handmade bowls and get a bowl of soup - all to benefit the SAMM shelter. So, I bought some new bowls and enjoyed cream of asparagus soup, black bean chili soup, and (my favorite) squash almond soup.
And then I came home for a nap and am suddenly not tired, even though I could really use a nap. Especially since I'd really like to stop watching this awful Spurs-Lakers game. Next up - Prickly Pear 10 mile trail run at McAllister Park on Saturday. I'm pretty sure that will make me tired.
