Tex Checking In

Hey everybody. I can’t believe it has been since January that I last posted. The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50. Peyton Manning retired with his 2nd Championships Ring. Connor McGregor lost to Nate Diaz. Ronda Rousey lost to Holly Holm, who then lost to Misha Tate. The Golden State Warriors won 73 regular season games. Baseball season is just starting. Tiger Woods is still not playing golf. And I have no idea who is in the hockey playoffs.

Springtime weather in Colorado is crazy. We would have blizzards one day that closed down roads, and then sunny and 60 degrees the next that melts all the snow. Then we would do it again 2 weeks later. The snow caused a lot of accidents, and a lot of cars to slide off the road. But thank God no injuries.

Since the weather is starting to get warm (70 with a slight breeze today) outdoor activities are starting to ramp up. With only about 6 weeks until school is out, sports camps are in full advertising mode. More people are running/walking outside instead of using the treadmill. And pretty soon sprinklers will be in full effect. Before you know it, it will be full-blown summer.

But with summer comes a lot of great activities in Colorado Springs. The annual Hot Air Balloon Classic in Memorial Park is always a favorite. The Rocky Mountain State Games will feature over 43 sports. The Race to the Clouds is the oldest and highest car race in the country as racers challenge themselves to the top of Pikes Peak. And of course the US Olympic Committee will be holding a Downtown Celebration in conjunction with the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Not a shortage of sporting events to be a part of this summer. Just remember your sun block and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
