I impulse bought a DJI mini 2 because I had a Costco giftcard burning a hole in my pocket. Took it to Kerrville this weekend and played with it a bit. It’s a lot of fun, but this pilot needs some practice!
One year and two weeks after the world ground to a halt due to Coronavirus, and on the third day of availability in Texas, I got my first shot of Pfizer vaccine yesterday. Science is amazing.
Somewhere midsummer, I felt like I needed to set a goal for something. I looked at my running stats for the year, which had been trending up since the beginning of the pandemic, and it looked doable to hit 1000 miles for the year. I told myself, “that’s less than three miles per day!” It seemed achievable in a healthy way without breaking any hips or anything.
I’m proud to say that I hit my goal on December 18th with an easy lap around the hike and bike trail:
Stats for the 1000 miles: 216 runs. 147 hours. 2.8 miles / day. Average speed 6.8 mph or 8:49 min/mi.
What I’m most proud of is that I had no injuries all year. Here’s to many more injury-free years of running to come!
These are two of more than a dozen video messages Annie sent me from upstairs on Duo. Really covers a range.

We’ve got Rick, Lightning McQueen dressed as a panda, and a unicorn space princess. As good as it gets.
Today, on the way home from school, Annie asked “When is my paper cut going to stop hurting?” I told her I’d need to look at it. I turned around and saw the below (recreated on-demand at the dinner table):
By far the biggest haul we’ve gotten in Austin
Sometimes we put on the White Stripes and just jump.
