Alright, I did give you a heads up earlier in
Race weekend. It’s hard feeling that hyper energy and excitement that comes with it.
I feel a connection to this half marathon. This is the fourth year its been run and I’ve been able to be in each race.
Interesting tidbit, but it was after running my best half in this race that the idea of running a full marathon showed up in my head.
The start of full blown insanity…..
The first year seemed disorganized and a bit chaotic.
I pondered the idea it might not go further than one year.
However, as time has gone on it has gotten better. Its grown but still not so big you’re lost in a sea of people ( like when I run the Rock n Roll)
The coolest part of this race is that it
starts and ends at our historic Alamo.
Which is why the race is cleverly titled….
The Alamo 13.1 it needs to be mentioned you also get super cool finisher medals ’cause we all run for
over ripe bananas that cool bling 😉
The course treks all over the beautiful downtown San Antonio area, along the Riverwalk and lots of other nifty scenic areas.
So….just a quick update here…stay tuned for weekend recaps 🙂
Happy running! Anyone else racing this weekend?
