The Austin Spirit Of Competition
More than 18 thousand runners participated in the 32nd annual Statesman Capitol 10,0000 race.
And…more than 400 nursing home residents competed in wheelchair athletic games at the Capital Area Games of Life. About 20 nursing homes come together in Austin every year to compete against other long-term care residents in games like volleyball, racing, or disk throwing.
