Late Summer/ Early Fall of 1996, I had recently dropped to the slow moving pace of the United States Marine Corps Reserves after spending 4 years on active Duty during peace times, so moving to Texas was a nice change of pace for me, but my mind set was still on the Marine Corps. I would commute into San Antonio on Drill weekends not to mention, Living in Ingram and commuting to San Antonio on non working weekends or non working days to Triathalon train as well. I would either throw my military gear in the back of the jeep and off I would go. I got used to driving the 70 mile commute south east into the city. I also got used to throwing my racing bike in the back and head into the city where there weren't so many hills.
I remember Bricking with my partner, we would either run first or bike first then hit the pool. Sometimes we would bike and run afterwards, which really was more straining for me. But it was all part of the training!
I miss the smell of Hill Country. I especially miss the smells of burning cedar when the weather got a little chilly in November and the surrounding residents in Hill Country had their fire places going!
Of course I miss the foods and the good times in San Antonio! The Riverwalk was the place to go as often as possible if I had money to spend on a great meal! Club life was good too in San Antonio!
Hail to Hill Country - Fredericksburg, Ingram, Kerrville and of course, Hail to San Antonio TX!
