Keep Austin Weird 5K
Are we sure that this wasn’t the Hotter Than Hell? It was 103 degrees at the 5 p.m. start. Then we were kept waiting 20 minutes while they cleared the roads. Standing on Riverside with all of those folks was like being in a sauna. I did alright, though, coming in at 38:16:50 and 43d for my age group. I ran most of the way. But after a water stop on South 1st, during mile 2, it was about three blocks before I got into a run. Still, I did make it in ahead of the group dressed as the General Lee.
