    This is where I take long depression walks. Just kidding but no I'm serious. I notice there's often this one Indian guy (presumably Indian) wearing a head wrap sitting on a bench.

    Get out of the bikers' and runners' way if you're just going on a stroll. Austin has a lot of fit people. If you're too slow, you'll incur their Texan wrath.

    Park on the north side of the lake near the Lamar street bridge, next to the new footbridge. The loops are really easy to understand, and make sure to hydrate.

    Great workout for the outdoorsy spirit within all of us. Make sure you know what you're getting yourself into. You don't want to end up running 10 miles instead of the 3 you planned on!
