Patrick Matousek and David Glickler leaned in for a photo together at the post-race picture-taking station at Auditorium Shores after completing the Statesman Capitol 10,000 on Sunday. Glickler was in traditional running garb, Matousek less so, in cut-off Dickie’s pants over knee-length jammer swimming trunks, topped by a torn tank top and a pink bow tie.

Glickler, 44 and from Buda, has run in the state’s largest 10-kilometer road race for most of the past 20 years. Matousek, 23 and from Austin, was running it for the first time. “We just met,” Matousek said, after crossing the finish line, and they decided to take a photo together.
