This weekend I met up with the White Rock Running Co-op for a “Run My Hood” run. One of the members hosted a long run from their house…which happened to be right by a lot of the fancy pants mansions here in Dallas.
I didn’t have my photography device with me on the run, but trust me, these mansions were huuuuuuuuge! Massive. Of some of the famous people’s homes I saw were Mark Cuban, Dirk Nowitzki, and G. W. Bush. Not sure who all else we passed, but when you see a house with it’s own football stadium (complete with scoreboard) in it’s side yard, then you know they’ve made some dough.
Anyway, I got in 7-8 miles on this steamy Texas morning. And afterwards we cooled off with a little pool party!
It was a great way to see a part of the city that I normally don’t hang out in (Come on Dirk, invite me over!). And of course we got to run with some cool peeps and then celebrate after. I love celebrating the small things. We should all do that more often.
How bout you? Ever run past mansions or famous homes? Ever celebrate little things? Which is better – shampoo or conditioner? Who got that last reference?
