Austin Cap10k Run

Original Post: Sunday, March 27, 2011

I ran the Cap10k last weekend. Had a blast and will probably do it again. I did the timed run and surprised myself that I could run a 9:45 mile, considering the masses.

I totally recommend this as a first-time race. The atmosphere was lively and full of camaraderie. I was with about 2,000 rambunctious HEB employees, being corralled to the start line, when everything fell silent – hands flopped onto chests, in honor of our National Anthem. It moved me to tears – and set the tone for the rest of my day.

My husband volunteered as crowd control at the First Street Bridge, a little more than a mile from the finish line.

Visit to see the results. My bib number was 3906.
