4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

Woo hoo!  Despite the gale force winds in NYC today, made it out only 2 hours late and arrived safely in Austin.  This will be a fantastic trip.  My wife and I left the kids at home with mother-in-law for 5 days!  Too good to be true.  Will top off the trip with the Austin Marathon on Sunday.

Today we looked at real estate, one of our fun common interests.  In addition to my New Jersey house, we own some rental houses in Asheville, NC, and we’re scouting about for other cool metro areas that might also double some day as a retirement base – Austin is very nice in the wintertime, and after the January we just had, I think we may eventually try to find a warm weather destination for the winter seasons.  

Had dinner at an awesome BBQ spot, Iron Works BBQ.  As horrible as it may sound, it is nice to have a few days without the kids.  It feels very liberating to not be on their schedule, listen to them fight and argue, and just simply do the things we want to do for a change!  I miss them for sure, but will enjoy the time away.

Will try to get the Expo out of the way tomorrow, and also go for a little run.
