Texas is how far?!

It’s Tuesday night now and I’m getting everything ready for the Austin, Texas marathon this Sunday. I had no idea how far away Texas is from Utah when I signed up for this race. It’s a 21 hour drive to Austin. I could probably drive myself down but then I might be too exhausted to run my best. I already know from past experience there ‘ain’t no way I’m gonna be driving myself home. I have a little 5 speed Saturn Vue which is usually fun to putt around in, but operating a clutch after running 26.2 miles is kind of like medieval torture. My wife refused to let me go alone so I had to enlist my daughter, Danielle, and her husband, Adam, to drive me there. This will be my 3rd state so that means only 47 more to go. Yippee.
