Today on the 20th of February, The Livestrong Foundation, and Austin Marathon and Half Marathon hosted the town's annual marathon in a collaboration, which is set to last the next three years. It was the 20th race anniversary this year, and since it was founded in 1992 it has grown by time. The special occasion allowed 20,000 participants - usually the number is 15,000 - and it was sold out. Lance Armstrong, the founder of the Livestrong Foundation, took place in the place himself in the Half Marathon. Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to get any good snapshots, but a lot of families, supporters, and children had found their way on the side line to be cheeleaders, and I got chance to capture them . It was a day full of excitement, family time, and Austin was vibrant. Source: youraustinmarathon.com
