Our fair city’s official slogan is “Live Music Capital of the World”, but many Austinites also support the unofficial slogan, “Keep Austin Weird”. Several thousand of the more active KAW supporters participated in this weekend’s Keep Austin Weird 5K.
Costumes were encouraged; the weirder, the better. Some runners painted their bodies. You can just imagine what that looked like after three-plus miles.
Bill and I like to run in the downtown 5Ks but we passed on this one. The temperature was still 100 degrees at the 7 PM race time. We were sweating while just standing still and watching the runners go by.
