In keeping with

appearances of the impossible, I've signed up for a ten-mile race in April.

I've never run ten miles. I may have run seven once, or perhaps it was six-and-a-half. But I think I can handle it. Two years ago, my first year of grad school, I was on. Running all the time up and down the highway. Moving smoothly, hardly thinking, settling into just the right pace. Last year, not so much. Scraped in time to run and it was never really enough, felt forced. Now, I feel like I've returned. The right amount of discipline.

We'll be out there. In Tejas shirts.

Dude, I feel you. On that rare moment I've been lost in the run... something happens. It changes you.
