Quick Update

It's been awhile since I've posted, and I know that both of you have been waiting with baited breath for an update.

First, let me say how utterly thrilled I am that the Texas Longhorns will be playing in the Rose Bowl on New Years Day. I love the fact that Mack Brown is unapologetically for pushing the voters to take a closer look at his team. Texas has gotten the short end of the stick in the BCS for several years. We deserve this bid. We are a better team than Cal. So they had a close game against USC, big deal. We had the same with OU. But we're 4-1 against top 25 teams, Cal is 1-1. We play in the Big XII, they're in the Pac-10. I'm really looking forward to the game against Michigan. Hook 'em!

Last weekend, I ran the final leg of the relay in the White Rock Marathon. Our relay team consisted of me, my dad, Jason (who ran the Marine Corps marathon with me), Andre (who works with my dad), and Mr. Pop (a family friend). We ended up finishing in 4 hours and 8 minutes, which is pretty good considering my dad (who will be 60 in February) ran 14 minute miles. I ended up doing my 10K portion in about 48 minutes. It was a fun race, but unfortunately I caught a cold afterwards and have been under the weather since. Nonetheless, I think I also caught the marathon bug again and am seriously considering running The Cowtown in late February.

That's all for now. I'm hungry. Time for breakfast.
