Dead Dog Walkin' Route

Some people ask me, "Are you really walking that far?"
Yep. 4 miles 5 days a week and it's actually 7.5 miles the other two days.
I start at Longhorn Dam on Pleasant Valley Rd and walk to I35 and around the lake for the 4 mile hike. Same start for the 7.5 miler but I keep going till I get to the Pfluger pedestrian bridge and around. It sounds pretty impressive, but it's easy. Step 1: Start Walking. Step 2: Don't stop. Make a loop, that way you can't cheat yourself... Especially if there's a lake in the middle of it.
Here's what it looks like from the air. Red is 4 miles, Blue is 7.5. Arrows point out the starting point and the Holliday Inn where the Blown Eyeds stayed for the Austin meet two years ago.

I'm down to 55 mins on the 4 mile loop now. It took me almost a week to get it down to an hour.

You gave me a start there at first... My ex's name is Anna. Whew.
