11/17: Austin Volkssport walk

Walk #2 of the day was a 10k with the Austin Volkssport group: The Colorado River Walkers. The walk was in the lovely Mary Moore Searight Park in South Austin – a place I’d never been. It turned out to be much sunnier and less shady than I though. I forgot my hat and ended up with a bit of a sunburn. I also ended up miss-reading the instructions and getting quite lost in the park. I did some parts of the trail more than once and never made it to the 2nd check-point – oops. Since I did go at least 10k, they let me stamp my book any way. Whew!
