where da heck are the gate agents?

it's almost time to start boarding and no "friendly" gate agents yet. This is not good. Plus it doesn't bode well for my chances for an upgrade. Sigh. At least I have a window seat.

Quick poll -- and it has to be quick because I have to act on it by tomorrow PM -- should I do a half-marathon Saturday AM just "for fun" as a warm-up to Austin next week? It would be expensive fun -- $55 in person sign-up in Dallas on Friday -- but it would put me in the running for the "Love the Half" challenge I've been meaning to do for a couple of years now. If I do Saturday's, then Austin, then Cowtown and then the Heels 'n' Hills in early May, I'd only need to find two more half before the end of May to get more schwag (Big D is in late April, and I could probably drive to Waco one weekend or another...). What think ye? I may have just talked myself into it. Gotta go -- juice is almost gone on the crappy Dell here. Peace out -- catch you later this weekend on Texas time.

Go for it! You ran 11 miles the other day so what's a couple more miles?

Maybe you shouldn't listen to me since I have never run a half much less one two weekends in a row. Hey I'm running the 10k at Cowtown. Maybe we will run into each other.

As much as you know I like schwag, back to back weekend long runs like that is tough. I'd save your energy for Austin ...
