The Capital 2 Coast Relay runs from Austin Texas at Reunion Park to Corpus Christi Beach by the USS
Lexington. It is 223 miles run on roads/highways and the goal is to finish by 5 pm on the Saturday of the race. The race is normally run in teams of 8-12 people but I chose to run this race solo. I had run the 200 mile distance in 07 and 08 but that race was on trail so I was concerned about how much of an effect 223 miles of road was going to have on my ability to finish. My prior road experience at that distance was a 48 hour race where I ran 148 miles.
