My First ‘Race’

I got my first taste of road racing as an intern for the 2007 Austin Marathon and Half Marathon. Yeah, I wasn’t even a runner, but that quickly changed. I became immersed in the Austin running culture and smitten with the idea that another sport (besides football and baseball) would allow me to push myself and test my limits. Throughout the years there have been plenty of road races, completing many 5Ks, 10Ks, and even a marathon (2015 Austin!). But I’ve never raced; never thought of winning. I’ve never wanted to win; never thought I could win. I’ve never worked to better my time to win. I’ve never trained and pushed myself to win.

Staying Vertical with David Fuentes

On Tuesday, April 5th, William Dyson, of High Five Events, sat down with David Fuentes, 2016 Olympic Trials Marathon Qualifier, to talk about the his involvement with this Sunday’s Cap10K, why he likes to lose, and how he kicks back when he’s not running. David also dishes out some advice for anyone looking to PR in their next marathon or half.
