Austin Marathon Recap

I did it. It is done. It hurt a lot (but in a good way… mostly).

Done!
Done!

For those interested, my race results are here. And you can see the Strava map for my mile-by-mile splits (which are mostly accurate, but the data is a little noisy in downtown).

As for a summary of the results: my chip time was 3:21:28, which comes to 7:41/mile. I beat my goal pace!

Other fun results for the day include being 34/326 in my division (M 25-29), 199/2235 among men, and 224/3638 overall! I really couldn’t be more happy with the results.

Many thanks to everyone at Conley Sports, who put on the LIVESTRONG Austin Marathon & Half Marathon, for such a well run and fun event! It’s really a great course and fun day, and that’s largely because of the crew they’ve got running it.

Here are some highlights from the day:

This way
Because of where she was standing at the finish… it turns out the kisses were 26.2 miles in the other direction.
All the finishers
