Running and Fitness: Staying fit is vital to not 'hitting the wall'

Running with Moe

This past week I spent a few days visiting my sister in Maine.

She lives in a home just across the street from the ocean and on a large piece of land with lots of big pine trees.  

One day was spent helping her husband clean out old trees, some of which had broken during the winters heavy snow. I tried to compare moving branches, logs and stepping over uneven ground to lifting weights.

Texas State hasn’t been afraid to play the lack of respect card.

Following a thrilling spring game back in April where he caught the game-winning touchdown — a 52-yard Hail Mary to hand the maroon team a 23-21 victory — senior wide receiver Jafus Gaines confirmed as much.

Texas State is spreading the wealth throughout the “Power Five.”

In all reality, it’s the opposite way around.

Once the 2017 season comes to a close, the Bobcats will have played at least one representative from each of the “Power Five” conferences during a seven-year stretch.

Texas State made that official on Wednesday afternoon when Dennis Franchione’s team added Colorado to its non-conference slate in 2017. The Bobcats and Buffaloes plan to face off on Sept. 9, 2017.

Outdoors: There is nothing like snagging a flounder


I love to catch all of the “big four” fish in the Texas coastal bays. The long power runs of a redfish are super exciting. The head shaking leaps of a speckled trout are beautiful. The black drum is not spectacular, but he is a real slugger.

But, my favorite of the four fish is the flounder. The flounder’s bite is subtle, much like a black bass taking a plastic worm. Sometimes you feel a light tap and then pressure. Most of the time the lure just feels weighty.

That’s a flounder bite.
