Wait, it’s over already?

That’s what my sister and I said as we approached the finish line of the 2010 Cap 10k. With the cool, misty weather and the sea of people surging along with us, 6.2 miles disappeared before we knew what happened. The Austin American-Statesman reports that more than 20,000 people participated in this year’s 33rd annual event. I documented the journey through video and photos, but you’ll have to excuse the shaky screen. Holding a camera steady while running is a lot harder than you might think.

Before the run (a.k.a. way too early in the morning)

There were plenty of crazy costumes

We're really disgusting after the race, but we got lots of free stuff!

All 10k participants received a bottle of water on the other side of the finish line. In addition, HEB gave out bananas, granola bars and sports drinks, and Schlotzsky’s Deli passed out bags of chips. We had a blast, and we got a great workout at the same time. I can’t wait till next year!
