San Antonio Rock n Roll 5k & Half Marathon Weekend.

Monday, December 03, 2018

Had a great time in San Antonio this past weekend running the Rock n Roll 5k and Half Marathon.
Saturady, December 1st: Got a photo of Kathryn Switzer (#261) at the 5k start line. The line was too long to wait to get a selfie with her. For those who may not recognize her name, she was the first woman who ran the 1967 Boston Marathon. I finished the 5k in 42:22.
Sunday, December 2nd: Ran the half marathon. Mile 7 through 8 was the Wear Blue to Remember mile, where Service Members photos are who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our Country and then the family members are holding American Flags. I slowed down, holding my right hand over my heart and let the tears flow.
This was the first 1/2 marathon that I have run that had the Wear Blue to Remember mile. It is just heart breaking. I couldn't even take pictures.
I now have a new personal Record time of 3:09:20 for the half marathon. WOOHOO
I love San Antonio but this road race was very boring, there were no interesting place to stop and take pictures.
