Austin...

Ran this morning early... tried to follow the sketch map that the hotel put together... but what they said was 6.9 miles was just 4.2 miles... so perhaps I was crossing the wrong bridge? Anyway, I ran up to the very handsome capitol building, and then down to the river. Sunrise seems to come quickly here -- it was dark when I set out, but was light really quickly. Or maybe I was just really slow...

So down to the river, along the river for a while, across the very handsome pedestrian bridge (pictures!), and then back along the river. I ran along path and under the "bat bridge", aka the Congress Street Bridge. I was a little hesitant to run under it, but it's not like one sees bats or anything. Then across the bridge, and back to the hotel... where I ran smack dab into our stylists and photographer. Yes, I looked awesome at the time. No, really.

Then (and this isn't running-related...) we had a great day two of the shoot. Great models, and the great crew (again). Rounded out the evening with a night out with the main crew at Guerros... where we had a great time. I promised the crew that I would work on being meaner before next time, because my goal is to make them terrified of me. ;)

(What must their other clients be like if *I'm* the nice one? Ouch.)

Happy to head home tomorrow, though I'm already trying to figure out the next time I can come to Austin... this time with Wil.
