from mile to marathon

questioning san antonio

Oh, not the saint. The place.

Both my boyfriend and I had mixed feelings about San Antonio - the investment of time, the expenditure of money, the brutal drive of ten hours (on closer inspection more like eleven), the rest of our lives put on hold.

We debated fruitlessly a couple of times, and could decide no further than setting the matter aside to be revisited after a week or so. Ten days later we found ourselves still conflicted, but agreed upon going with wonderful simplicity. The drive is still eleven hours long, it's not going to cost any less, and the only thing we will accomplish is taking pictures of the Alamo

Besides me running my next marathon, that is.

Your are such a "maniac".. I think you do like running. Have fun on the drive.

Gotta love those long, long drives! After the 15 hours to/from San Francisco, I'm done with long car trips for a while!

But, who can resist? Not you!

We do what we gotta do, even when we can't explain why. It's cool you have someone who will go along even if they don't know why, either. I hear the Alamo is pretty cool. :)

That's a long drive...it would put me nearly in Boston. Oh. Did I say Boston?

Gotta love the marathon bug. Good luck.

My dad grew up in San Antonio and I would love to visit again as I have not been since high school. Sounds like you are in full maniac mode.

“The rest of our lives put on hold”, you said. This makes me wonder: what is this “rest of or life” we put aside, when we are focusing on something? And isn’t precisely “the rest of our lives” we deliberately want to run away from, when we dedicate ourselves to a goal or a passion?
