I’ll try to keep this brief and let the pictures do the talking. Friday I ran 17 miles and felt good. Saturday I ran 2 miles and felt like bricks. But after that run I got on a plane and flew to San Antonio for the Lone Star Emmy Awards Gala where we were nominated for 5 Emmys!
Then got all gussied up for the brew ha ha.
Then went to the ballroom for the festivities where I met a couple guys in nude tuxedos.
Ran into some of my friends who were also nominated for Emmys. Here’s my buddy Emily Reppert – host of Chevy Hometown Kids on Fox Sports Southwest.
Out of the 5 nominations, we took home 2 Emmys!
Since we won 2, I got to make 2 speeches. I think my jokes were funny. Others might not be as amused. haha.
The next morning I ran a 7 miler around the city. Had breakfast with a friend, then flew back to Dallas. Ran into Nitro from American Gladiators at the airport. 2nd time I’ve run into him, so figured it was a sign to have a chat with him. Very nice guy. Now he promotes the Gladiator Rock n Run. Worlds colliding!
Once home, the wife and I went to get some veggie burgers.
I then met up with a bunch of my runner friends for a big tree lighting ceremony. I brought one of my Emmys, people liked taking photos with it.
Yes, it was a Christmas tree lighting. I don’t know why they did it, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! But they lit up the whole square as well. All the trees are lit, looks nice!
Obviously, it was a tremendous weekend. I’m still processing it all. But I’m also very thankful. I work hard, and appreciate the recognition.
Anyway, how was your weekend? Which American Gladiator would you like to meet? Tell me something good that happened to you recently!
