#50. Run in the Next Schlotzsky's Bun Run

Better late than never I suppose. I just recieved an email from The Young Business Men's League of Austin (YMBL), it's that time of year again. Time for all of Austin's 5k's, 10k's and what have you. I say what have you because there are also adventure races and high intensity races in this town. I have only taken part in the Schlotzsky's Bun Run and this year marks the 28th annual race, an Austin tradition since 1982. No. I haven't been running it that long I have only run the race a few times but enjoy myself everytime I have.

This year I doubt I'll be racing, The Wife and I are coming down to the final stretch of her pregnancy. Ha, I say "I" as if I am pregnant. But, Lil Cash will be here at any moment, hopefully right around the time the race is going. While I'm here, I decided I'll post pictures from last season's race, I didn't write up a post then so now seems like a good time.

My time wasn't nearly as good as I hoped it would be, but good enough for me. I had only been working out solidldy for 3 months at the time of the race. Before that, I wasn't quite as active as I should have been.

Check out that stride, and that boy rocking the South Austin T. That's how I roll, oh yeah, I remember I had to make a couple of pit stops. My knee was aching so I had to adjust my knee strap and natured called, what-a-ya-gonna-do? Number one.

Nicely done. I've done a few 5ks here. There is a half marathon coming up and one of my guys talked me into running it with him. What was I thinking, right?

Half marathon? I don't know if I got it in me to do that. I don't have much cardio endurance. When is that race?
