To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Deep in the Heart of Texas...

So, Texas is one of the fattest states in the USA.

Go Figure!

It's ridiculously HOT here. The white people are melting...

If I lived here, I am pretty sure I'd be REAL fat. Because who wants to leave the house when it feels like you're sitting on the sun outside?!?

Now, think of that picture and try training for a marathon in this weather!

I MAY die.

It IS a possibility.

And, no, I am not being dramatic.

It is THAT hot!

Sista Collmar trained for her marathons in Texas. She doesn't want to hear your complaining! :) I wouldn't even attempt to do something so crazy (any marathon activities no matter the weather)!

Kari - Your mom is a way better athlete than I, she's AMAZING! And, you should see her cute new hair cut! It's darling.

Katy - We are having a Phil and Jan Family reunion. We went to Great Wolf Lodge, San Antonio (Sea World) and Austin. It's was a HOT blast! How's Puerto Rico? I want to come back! How's your internship? Tell my favorite aunt and uncle I say hello and I LOVE them!

At the reunion I called down to your room and your mother answered and said you had gone running and would be back in a *couple of hours*.

....

Yeah.. Well, having never craved isolation or physical exercise to the point I would do something like run for multiple hours on a hot Texas day, I admire your determination.
