Remember when Friday nights were for parties and concerts instead of old-people bedtimes to prepare for early Saturday morning runs?

Well this weekend I tried both.


The view from the cheap seats

Last night we went to a concert at the Austin360 Amphitheater (part of Circuit of the Americas F1 complex), and it was technically Saturday morning by the time we got home. Four hours of sleep is insufficient preparation for running eight miles, in case you’re wondering.

But we had a good time–$25 lawn seats is totally the way to go at this venue–and I managed to slog through eight slow, humid, sweaty miles this morning.

As the song goes, “I’m hot, sticky sweet/from my head to my feet.”
