Runners flow out of the start point of the Livestrong Austin Marathon and Half Marathon "shadow run," held on Contingency Operating Site Kalsu, Iraq, Sunday. Over 100 runners participated in the 13.1-mile race that took them three laps over gravel and mud covered roads. The race is sponsored by the central Texas based Marathon, and is one of many similar events that are held in support of deployed servicemembers.
