2011 Capitol 10K

It's finally over.  I ran my first 10K yesterday in Austin.  I finished the race in 1:19:07.  Not a great time, but I didnt finish last.  I love the thrill at the start of the race.  Running up Congress Ave towards the Capitol building with 23,000 other runners is so surreal.

Last year I walked the 10K and took pictures along the way.  This year I had a camera, but after this shot it went into my pack and I ran the race. 

I'm ready for next years race.

Holy cow! Jim, you and Brian are amazing!

About the ball pass through the crowd, I'll try to remember to ask a friend at work--her family has season tickets. Wish I could afford that!

Terrific, Jim. Congratulations; it's been fun thinking about you and this race.
