INK Runs. Literally.
This post comes from INK alumna Rachael Genson.
Here at INK, our love of fitness is almost tantamount to our love of PR. From triathlons to 10-mile runs to in-office training sessions, we always try to incorporate some fitness routine into our lives. So when Starr mentioned that she signed up for the Capitol 10,000, the rest of us jumped at the chance to participate.
With over 30,000 participants each year, the Capitol 10,000 (or Cap 10K as it is known in Austin), is considered the largest 10K race in Texas and the 5th largest in the nation. The race takes place in late March every year in downtown Austin, making it an enjoyable and scenic run to participate in. This past weekend, we all headed downtown sporting our awesome INK running shirt, designed by our very own Design Star, Jessica Warren, to represent 202 S Lowell Lane. The temperatures may have been warmer than expected and the crowds may have made the course more like an obstacle course than a run course, but we all crossed that finish line (some completing their very first 10K finish) and had a blast in the process.
Of course, no group event at INK would be complete without food, so after the race we walked over to the nearby El Alma, for a delicious Sunday morning brunch and some celebratory mimosas. We were even joined by some of our favorite mini-INKers: Jacob, Charlotte and Parker!
Despite the sore legs and tired muscles that many of us felt Monday morning, we’re already busy trying to figure out which event the INK crew will participate in next. If you know of any great races in the Austin area, be sure to send them our way.
