I'm off to Fredericksburg tomorrow to run the Wildflower 10k with some friends. I haven't run properly in weeks so I'll probably be really slow, but so what - should be fun. Gavin is signed up for the kid's mile and Nancy is looking forward to it too. Really I should be here in Austin doing the Texas Roundup 10k with the work wellness committee, but I skipped out on it. I guess there's something in my makeup that just enjoys rebelling and following my own path. Besides, the Roundup is a real meat market, and I hate crowds. Far better to do a small town race.
Unfortunately for me, word got out that I was jumping ship and the guys are now insisting I bring them back some Fredericksburg peaches as a penance. My pleas that it was too early in the season fell on deaf ears, so I offered to bring them back some wildflowers and warned them not to get the wrong idea.
They politely declined :-)
