If you're wondering why Zane is barefoot in December, it's NOT because of the weather, it's because he doesn't wear shoes. We're raising him country style!
And...can you imagine what my mustache is going to look like once I finally shave my beard?
My body had been out of commission since the Turkey Trot because I went on a post-Holiday vacation, and then I got sick. Well, I finally felt decent enough on Monday to get my ass outside and breathe in the cool Dallas smog and feel the wind run its fingers through the hair on the sides of my head.
What better way is there to experience the outdoors than a 2 mile run around Glencoe Park? Okay, there's plenty of better ways, but a run was my choice.
It felt great too...the run and the weather. It was Texas nice outside, although a little on the warm side once my body started pumping greatness through its veins.
And it was windy enough to re-shape my comb-over as I rounded each turn. At one point, I saw the homeless lady smile as my hair shifted from my left ear to my right ear. Nonetheless, she was cheering me each time I passed her.

The nanny's were ignoring me as usual as I cruised by them, but it was probably because I was running so fast they couldn't see me. I considered taking my shirt off each time I ran by but I wasn't sure my perfectly sculpted stomach and chest would get their foreign attention.
Since Monday, the
And since I was in my running shoes when I returned home from work, I decided to keep them on and run in place for 30 minutes. After about 2 minutes, Zane looked up at me from the book he was reading and said, "what the heck is going on old man? How about you quit acting like a dang fool and remove this poo from my diaper when I finish this chapter?"
I looked at my reflection in the devil's box and realized I was acting like a dang fool and decided to stop and change our diapers.
Anyway...Even though I haven't been ACTUALLY running, I know I've AT LEAST been running through your mind! Go ahead...admit it!
