It was October 31, 2016 about 8pm. I was standing near the strip of Las Vegas and a 45 yr old Canadian man ran the 5k in just a second or two under 16:00. I was astonished. The crowd, the energy, the everything!
It was at that moment I said, “I want to WIN one of these 5k races.”
A year later, I’ll return to Las Vegas and actually compete in that race and I couldn’t be more excited. The breakdowns, the breakthroughs, all the training and work and sore knees and feet. Perhaps…if I work hard, I’ll take first place in that one. If not, I return to San Antonio, the last race of the year, to lay it all out on the line and empty the tank. I want to be first!
Being from Texas, I’m no stranger to San Antonio. Raised in Austin, TX and living in a over a dozen cities across the massive state, ole SA was a great place to pop down and enjoy the River Walk, tour around and see something different.
I’ve never run this course before and most likely, I’ll do the Full Marathon because, well….why not? The Half just seems too easy.
Let’s do this! San Antonio, I’m coming for you!
Schedule of Races:
5k race – Sat, Dec 2, 2017 at 7:30

The Expo should be cool, held at The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center Halls 4A & 4B (map)
The great thing about Rock n Roll (or RnR as we like to say) is the entertainment, both before, during and of course…the after party! I’m eager to hear the guys of Vintage Trouble.
Check out the website of RnR SA for more details.
Better yet, join me there!
