●●● Austin Marathon
Looking for something fun to do today? How about cheering on the 5,000 marathoners and 11,000 half marathoners? Having run the marathon twice in the past, I can tell you that every cheering spectator is appreciated! When I ran the race, my boys held up "Free High Five" signs, and had a great time spreading the love. Seriously, runners would cross the road just to get a high five. Or bring some jolly ranchers, oranges or bananas or even play the radio on high. With 26.2 miles, these runners appreciate any distraction!
