Did you say Boston or Austin Scream Tunnel?

Yesterday, the famous Wellesley "Scream Tunnel" of the Boston Marathon made an appearance at the Austin Marathon.

As you may know, Wellesley College is located at mile 13 of the Boston Marathon. Many stories have been written about the Wellesley women who create a "Scream Tunnel" every year that lifts runners spirits through the halfway point of the marathon.

For the Austin Marathon, the Austin Wellesley Club was granted a water stop at North Loop and McCandless to cheer on the runners. I can't imagine it being louder than the real Scream Tunnel in Wellesley--one of the most greatest experiences in running--but nice job Wellesley alumni--way to bring a little taste of Boston to Austin.
