The night before the 2020 Austin Marathon and Half Marathon. A hotel room packed with 17 runners.
“Who have trained for more than 200km the last 3 months?” I asked.
Nobody raised their hands. The room was silent.
I was ready for this. Ever since our successful 3M Half Marathon experience in 2019, we knew we could do something bigger. Indeed, about 23 PREP students signed up for the Capitol 10K last April, only to be told that the race was cancelled due to a thunderstorm. To rise above our disappoint, we must torture ourselves with something grander. A bigger project.
How about the Austin Marathon?
