Busy Weekend

I was supposed to go and run the Austin marathon course yesterday, but I slept in and wanted to get back in time to watch the rugby, so I ended up doing 11 miles of hill running instead.

So when Naresh called and asked me if I wanted to run the half marathon course with him last night I jumped at the chance. Sharpie also joined us, and we had a great laugh as we ran up and down the hills that several thousand runners would traverse today.

It gave me 24 miles for the day, and my foot held up pretty well - I got a few twinges from it in the last few miles, but nothing very serious.

Then this morning I joined the HCTR crew at the 22.5 mile mark of the marathon with our unofficial water (and adult beverage) stop. We yelled, cheered and clapped as the runners came past. We had several Mexican wrestler masks, a gorilla mask, a few cowbells and clappers, and we had a blast.

It's a lot of fun to see a marathon from another angle.
