Capitol 10K 2013

Last Sunday, Cyn and I participated in the biggest 10K run in Texas, the Capitol 10K!  It was Cyn's first ever, and the first one I've done in years.

 Here are some pics:

One of the fun things about it (and one of the fun things it shares with the Turkey Trot) is the folks who wear costumes for the run. Here's just one:

Jetpacks!  It's blurry because they're moving so fast...

Another of the fun things was the bands and music groups that played along the race route.   Among my favorites were St. Martin's Lutheran Church playing "For unto Us a Child is Born" from Handel's Messiah as we were climbing the 15th Street hill; the Connally High School Marching band under the MoPac bridge; and the Japanese drum group on Cesar Chavez.

Many thanks to all the organizers, sponsors, volunteers and participants.  Thanks also to the folks in Austin who put up with the traffic delays!
