The Huntsville Town Square
I met my buddy, Bo Brawner, early one morning before my appointments and he led me on a loop through the old part of Huntsville. I love history stuff and we saw a lot of antebellum homes, the lovely town square and the natural spring that originally provided water to the citizens. We also saw John Morgan's house (Confederate General) and a bank that Billy the Kid allegedly robbed. My buddy Bo is a huge fan of the area and spoke of great running venues, especially the trails in the surrounding mountains.

A few weeks after my run with Bo I was back to help out with a Triathlon that Pearl Izumi was sponsoring. The event was at a park about 30 minutes south of the city on the Tennessee River, but it gave me another chance to spend some time on the ground. I must say I now have a very positive view of the Huntsville area. There is great access to some rivers and lakes, it is right next to some mountains (or at least large hills) and there is a strong NASA presence. #NeverTooOldForSpaceCamp Nice to meet you Huntsville. I look forward to running you again.
