2 3 live&learn&rejoice: Running

March 28, 2011


Out of the 23,000 people who ran Austin's Capital 10K this past weekend, 12,000 entered the timed race.  The fastest man (a 24-year old) finished in a time of 29:54 and the fastest woman (a 31-year old) in 34:53.   The oldest man who entered the timed race (and finished) was 89 years old and finished with a time of 1:30:34.  Two 80 year old women finished the race, one with a time of 1:30:09, and the other at 1:58:07.  To finish among the first half of the timed entrants, one would have to run a 1:03:00 race (that's 10:17/mile).
