Slept in.  Ran a progressive 5K while hubby♥ walked/jogged (9:53, 9:09, 8:52, 8:19)  Other than the tight patella tendon, legs felt pretty good!

Worked in the yard in the cool morning with hubby♥ side by side.   Silly me, forgot to change shoes and got my Inspire all muddy.  Then we went to see the movie, The Help.  It's a good show, I cried and laughed so hard.  Then we went shopping and to dinner.  FUN DAY!!!

Ran with Karen, Carolyn and Wendy down 3rd west then up on rail trail.  The rail trail is now connected to the newly paved canal trail up to Bull River, YAHOO!!!  Can't wait for the entire canal trail to be paved then we will have limitless trail to run.  :)

Forgot to charge the Garmin so no splits, probably mid 9's on the uphill.   Legs felt great!

Off to shopping with hubby♥ for the renovation and some Cougars garb! :)

Got up bright and early for the flight to Austin via Dallas.  Travel day so no running!

Look who's flying with us! 

The flight from Dallas to Austin was delayed because it was transporting the flag that was flown over ground zero in New York to Austin, the Capital of Texas for the 9/11 memorial.  After landing and getting off the plane, our party stood just outside the gate to wait and watch the flag being carried by white gloved National Guard off the plane.  It was a very special patriotic moment.  Jimmer stood right next to me! :)

After checking in the hotel, the AT&T Education Conference Center in the University of Texas campus, we were bused to a Salt Lick, a rustic restaurant famous for their BBQ.  I have never eaten so much meat (ribs, pork and chicken) in my life. 

Look who rescued me from a meat coma!

Got up dark and early to run on the hotel's treadmill.  Only had time to run 12 in 1:37.  Sweat bucket.  Showered and went to breakfast with the group.

Guess who sat at my table!

Then we went on a private tour of the football stadium and their athletic facilities.  That stadium is HUGE, can seat over 100,000.

I look almost as tough as the longhorn, Earl Campbell, behind me!

I'd love to run on this turf!

Look who drove all the way from Houston to have lunch with us!

The grandkids were so excited to see/meet Jimmer!  "Daddy is taller than Jimmer!" :)

Cosmo is always cheerful even though the temp was 96F and sunny.  I roast sitting at the southeast end of the stadium.  Can't imagine how hot Cosmo must've been moving up and down the sideline in that fury coat!

Can you see Jimmer's autograph on the back of my right shoulder?

My daughter and son-in-law sat in section 101 directly across from us. We sat in section 32 row 3.  We are in the front row of that blue section show in this picture taken by my daughter's cell phone!

See the blue block among the sea of burnt orange?
