Weekend FYI - Sunday 2/15 runners will fill the downtown streets for Austin Marathon & Half Marathon . Here are the best viewing spots:

• South Congress Avenue, Miles 1-3: The first three miles of the course are a steady climb out on South Congress Avenue. There are tons of great spots along this stretch to cheer the runners on as they start their journey.
• South 1st Street, Miles 4-6: Runners have just finished the three-mile climb up South Congress and now pick up some speed.
• Austin City Hall, Mile 6: Cesar Chavez and South First
• Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge, Mile 7: Over Cesar Chavez, just east of Lamar
• Mile 12 (Half Marathon Course): 15th and West Ave. This spot sits atop the toughest hill on either course.
• Mile 12 (Marathon Course): Exposition & Westover. This spot is easy to access from Mopac (Loop 1) via Westover.
• Mile 17: Rockwood and Anderson Lane.
• Mile 20: Koenig and Woodrow. There’s a large aid station and music that will join you to up the noise and positive energy levels! The best access is from Lamar or Burnet Road.
• Mile 24-25: Duval, San Jacinto and the University of Texas
• The Finish, Mile 26: 10th and Congress. Once you’ve shared the love out on the race route, it’s definitely worth coming down to the finish area on Congress, south of the Capitol. There’s live music, trailer food, and of course, the finish itself!

OK, now this is weird, even for Austin. Yes beginning 2/12 you too can text and converse with a downtown lamp post (without the need to ingest any mind altering substance). The hidden life of Austin's street furniture will come to light next month with the launch of Hello Lamp Post , an international art project which invites people to strike up conversations (could be awkward) with familiar objects around the city using text messaging.

Watch: youtu.be/nf5kmNoUbXQ

Starting Feb. 12, anyone can text the official Hello Lamp Post phone number and "wake up" lamp posts, mail boxes, hydrants, or even buildings and discover what these objects have to say. The public is invited to a free kick-off event, complete with drinks and bites, Feb. 12, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Republic Square, 422 Guadalupe St. www.hellolamppostaustin.com.
