Capitol 10,000

cap-01The Statesman Capitol 10,000 is the largest 10K in Texas and the fifth largest in the nation.

As one of my two 2013 New Year Resolutions (sadly, the other one is a carryover from 2012 and shall remain secret), I decided to run in the Capitol 10k on April 7th. For some people running ten kilometers is no big deal, but for me it is, as I’m not particularly fond of running after anything that isn’t a soccer ball or a toilet.

So now the cat is out of the bag, although technically it left the bag on February 5th. And I’m not alone in the suffering: one-time The MKX® author Shlomit is going to do it as well. Feel free to hold us both accountable.
