Track file looks weird because I started and ended my walk at a place on Jones Rd where I dropped my car off to get my oil changed.  It was close to Matzke Park, so I walked up to the park, did some miles while my car was serviced, and then walked back to pick up my car.

Beautiful, brisk, clear day in Houston.  I did several laps at my neighborhood park and felt out of shape, lol.  I cut it short because it was in the mid-40s and I wasn't dressed warm enough.  I took my GPS with me this time for amusement.

Matzke Park is a relatively new park that has a long looping trail.  There is a shorter loop and a longer loop.  Within the loop are sports fields and a large playground for kids.
