We're staying at the Hilton near the Convention Center, which is right next to beautiful Town Lake. I got in on Saturday night and man the weather has been just beautiful so far. There was talk of rain but I haven't seen any yet!
We took a walk around Town Lake on Sunday and people watched, which is always fun.
Then we walked around a little downtown and found a fun mural.

|Sooo happy to be running in 70 degrees!!|
It's true that I had a set number of miles to reach in my head, but I was trying to listen to my body and not push it too much. I got near where I felt like it was a good place to turn around, checked my mileage, and I had gone 2.6 miles. Well.. I couldn't just go 5.2 miles. I had to round it out! So I reached my goal of 6 miles!
You can see I was getting much more tired around the last two miles. I hadn't run that far since January 31st! As I was running I just kept thinking how nice it'll be when Seattle starts to be 70 and sunny all the time, until almost October. I miss summer so much!
My hip didn't really bother me that much, and I think running more regularly will help it strengthen and ultimately heal. As long as I keep doing yoga and pull back when I feel it really start to hurt, I think it'll be okay.
I rewarded myself later in the day with these Austin staples:
|Chocolate Chocolate Chip Tiny Ice Cream at Amy's (the perfect size)|
|Mexican Martini at Trudy's... How I've missed you!|
I'd still like to go to Hula Hut, Salt Lick, La Barbecue, The Rainey Street Bars, Hyde Park Bar and Grill, Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill, and of course, Ken's Donuts.
I'm off to a yoga class at Wanderlust Yoga here in downtown - I'm excited to try it out!
