da nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh BATRUN!
On Friday July 13th Mom and Dad participated in the BATRUN in Austin to benefit the bats that live under the Congress Street Bridge.
Each evening around sunset the Congress Avenue bats emerge like a black cloud from the crevices of the bridge. Covering the countryside in search of food, it is estimated that the bats consume from 10,000 to 30,000 pounds of insects.
They waited to see the bats but they waited until after dark to emerge from under the bridge. We'll have to wait to see them better another time (when we can come). Mom and Dad finished the race and it has motivated them to run in future 5Ks. Hopefully, in the winter we can take us too. Our friend Dave finished the race in under 30 minutes and did a great job! Maybe we can run at his ranch again soon.
