Each year, the Austin Trail of Lights hosts an exciting 2.1 mile fun run under the stars and over 2,000,000 twinkling lights, ending with a Finish Line Festival and Expo. This year’s event was on Saturday, December 2 and the Austin CPA Chapter formed a team to combine fitness and fun before the huge crowds come out to the Trail of Lights. The weather was absolutely perfect for this event so it was easy to enjoy the scenery without being too hot or cold. You just never know in December.

The Chapter had asked those wanting to join to sign up for the 6:30 wave, but it sold out quickly. There were several people registered for the 8:00 wave so we didn’t get a full group picture, unfortunately. We were decked out in our black CPAs Count! t-shirts which easily stood out among the red race shirts most others were wearing. As we jogged by, we received shout outs “CPAs Count!” Free advertising, y’all.

If you missed out on the fun this year, don’t worry! You can still go see all the lights from December 9-23 and the Austin CPA Chapter will form a team for 2018!

Happy Holidays to all of you!
