Last night was supposed to be the popular Katy Trail 5k and After Party for many of my friends. But Dallas had a massive windy thunderstorm blow through town and they had to cancel the event. Bummer for those runners. The weather did clear up later on and so a group of us met at Lululemon for Thursday Night Social Run.
I got in a quick 5k at a 7:20-something pace. It was a bit slippery and humid, but not too bad.
Afterwards we did the social part of our run and went to a local joint for a little grub and a little brew. And one of the organizers of TNSR had a surprise – Lululemon gave him some gift cards to a pretty ba-darse local Tex Mex hotspot as a ‘thanks’ for hosting so many of our runs at their store. He decided to have a number guessing contest to give them away. And guess what else? I guessed correctly and won one of the cards!!!
Anyway, as we socialized, the NFL draft was on the TV’s. Being that I live in Texas, Johnny Manziel gets a lot of attention around here…as he also does nationally, but more so here. So all eyes were on him. Many people wondered if the Dallas Cowboys were going to draft him. But they did not, instead the team I root for picked him. Yup, he’s going to the Cleveland Browns (I’m originally from Ohio, hence my team choice).
I do not know if he will be a bust or a hero, but either way it’s bringing a lot of energy and attention to the Browns. Something they haven’t had in a long long time. They have been a bad team for even longer. It’s been hard being a Browns fan, but we are loyal.
Here’s hoping the Browns finally reward some of our loyalty!
How bout you? Ever had a race cancelled (They also cancelled the Dallas Marathon back in Dec due to ice)? Who loves free tacos in their mouths? What do you think of Johnny Football going to Cleveland? Who’s your NFL team (I know Salt, you root for the evil 😉 Ravens)?
I am not a Lions fan but being from Michigan I can understand being loyal to a team that doesn’t produce. As a Cubs fan, we can certainly understand. When we were in Aruba our cab driver asked who we rooted for and he responded with, “Oh…long time no win.” Pretty exciting stuff for Cleveland.
