2019 Race Number 55: Cleft Strong 5K

My 55th race of 2019, was held on October 12t at Los Patios, a local San Antonio area restaurant that borders on the off-road paved trails of Lady Bird Johnson Park. Start time of 8:30 a.m. This event supports Cleft Strong, an organization that helps children and infants born with cleft palates. Los Patios is only about 7 miles from where I live, so it did not take me long to get there, find some parking, and then get a few pre-start photos. There were about 150 or so participants for this event. There was also a kids’ run and a Disney-themed costume contest for both adults and kids.
