     Austin Marathon is slated for the day after Valentine’s Day. What a great way to spend the day after a romantic holiday running the marathon and having your significant other cheer you on from the sidelines in one of the coolest towns in America. Perhaps you’ll run together…that is, start off together until you kick their butt later in the race.

The picture above is the crowd last year rolling by the street in front of my house.

I’m really hoping that my friends from Vermont will come down and run this one. In fact, this blog is posted as a quick sales tool for them. Their doing Boston and all of these other events, so why not Austin? We kick ass here. Ha.

Get this. Austin is EVEN ranked #1 for the “Greenest Races” according to Runner’s World Magazine.

(here is some of what they say about Austin being a green race. “As if solar generators, a finish-line farmers’ market, organic race tees, and bio-diesel vehicles weren’t enough, the event recycles 14,375 pounds of trash”)

 

Don’t forget that if you’re new to town, Austin is home to the LONGHORNS and we are serious about our team. We’re number one right now as of writing, and I just thought I’d toss that out there in case you didn’t know.
