The 2011 LIVESTRONG Austin Marathon came and went on Sunday, starting in the pre-dawn glow and finishing in the shadow of the state capitol building. With over 15,000 runners for the 20th anniversary of the race, and the first year with the LIVESTRONG sponsorship, this race felt like the big leagues. As I mentioned previously, I hadn’t trained as much nor as focused as usual, so my goals going in were set conservatively*. So how did I do in my 10th marathon? Hint: lots of ups and downs.
