The Human Race

Ran The Human Race in Austin a few hours ago. Official time of 59:18, which is a far cry from what I ran in the Capitol 10,000 ten years ago, but not bad for an old man. Yes, yes– big corporate-sponsored to-do, but a big portion of the proceeds went to various charities (I directed my contribution to the UN Refugee Fund), and it was a pretty extraordinary experience. At one point, the course went up a series of hills, and the runners ahead of me formed a huge, bobbing river of red (due to the official race uniforms)– it was quite beautiful, and I only wish I could have enjoyed it a bit more, but with temps in the mid-90s, I had to keep my focus on the task at hand. Good stuff!
