Austin is no stranger to superhero athletes. There are people walking among us with stories that inspire, sometimes having cheated death to reach the upper echelons of their sports. Runner Gilbert Tuhabonye survived genocide in Berundi, Mark Zupan proved you can be an athlete when confined to a wheelchair, and you most likely know the cancer survival story of cyclist Lance Armstrong. Amazing people. Then, there are the rest of us. Those people, like me, whose physical goals in life are merely created to offset indulgence.
