I decided to do some cross training this afternoon, so I took my son, Ben, fishing at Huntsville State Park. There was a 5-foot alligator hanging around the fishing pier the whole time we were there. I could not find my good rod and reel, so I fished with an old one. I left it unattended on the railing for a few seconds and a big fish took the bait and my rod and reel. Ben had a second one, so I used that and was careful to hang on to it. Ben and I both caught a Bass (3 to 4 pounds). Nice relaxing afternoon.
This evening, I worked out at Nautilus and then ran 1.8 miles on the roads in town.
