First Post Back

It has been almost a month since I last posted anything here, and today seemed like a great day to do that. I just got back from my second trip to Memphis this month, and I have to say, the weather could not have been better. I got two runs in (Friday & Saturday) of varying distances, and saw some of the most beautiful trees and homes anywhere.

After my drive home on Monday, I got another run in here in St. Louis and it was great too. Near the end of my run a very nice man riding a motorcycle yelled "That's a red light" to me, I was glad he informed me of the color because I, as many of you may not know, am not colorblind. He then proceeded to let me know that I was, in fact, a "criminal." I am glad he was there to inform me of this, because, again, I was unaware that what is evidently referred to as "jaywalking" was engagement in criminal activity. I have of course contacted the proper authorities to altert them of my rogue delinquency.

On a serious note, though, I had such a wonderful weekend with my friends John and Jimmy in Memphis. I wish that we were all in the same city again, but alas, our visits to each other's cities, however infrequent they may prove to be, will have to suffice for the time being.
