AM - a little over 7.5 miles mostly along the river walk in San Antonio.  Really buggy with swarms of gnats - and as a result a bunch of bats.  Spent a fair amount of time dealing with avoiding swallowing and inhaling the gnats.  Slow but decent run.

gnats and bats... no rats or cats? Travis and his girlfriend are looking at San Antonio as a possible landing spot after she graduates UNF... that and Austin and Raleigh and Atlanta and...

Can't ski in any of those places Doug.

Welllll, they're looking at Chicago as well, but I'm trying to block that out.

Actually I did see a few cats but no rats... :)

I did not get the same vibe in San Antonio that I have gotten in Austin and Raleigh as a cool hipster place. Not a big fan of Texas overall though. I like the hills and the greenery in Atlanta and the Carolinas.

They should check out Asheville too.
