What I Love About...

Austin is at 5:45am on a Friday morning, the Barton Springs' parking lot is PACKED!

There are people getting ready to run, cyclists pumping up tires getting ready to roll and swimmers donning wetsuits, flippers, paddles, kickboards, caps and goggles and jumping in.

Way to be fit and fun Austin. Keep it up!!

it is a bit troubling how many people I meet then who I know.

Hmmm... not caling you a liar or anything, but... I have a hard time believing this statement: "cyclists pumping up tires getting ready to roll"
Cyclists don't roll till at minimum 6:30 when there's light. Then again, maybe some decided to get on their trainer outdoors?!?! LOL!

Pssst...if you arrive at 5:25, you can pretty much pick your parking spot! Just don't take my old faithful!

Gordon, it would be even a bit more troubling if you were meeting a bunch of people you don't know.

MIKE! How dare you...they were pumping! But I bet they didn't start until 6:15 or so..

is "pumping" the new cycling term for "wearing a visor and sunglasses waiting for the bike ride to possibly breakout"?!

hee hee hee
