Last Night: Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals @ The Capital [Nike Human Race]

Austin :)

The Nike+Human Race took place this past Sunday in 25 different cities all over the world, boasting more than 700,000 runners. In Austin alone 15,000 runners participated in the race, including our friend Janelle (Congrats!). The 6.2 mile course took place in downtown Austin and supposedly had more runners than New York and Chicago Nike runs.

The Runners

Following the race and award ceremony, Lance Armstrong took to the stage to introduce our entertainment for the evening. Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals came out to thunderous applause. Highlights during the hour and half set included "Burn One Down", "Diamonds on the Inside", and my favorite and the last song of the evening "With My Own Two Hands". Special thanks to Nike.
