2019 Race 15 – Scallywompus 5K 10K Half Marathon

My 15th race of 2019, held on March 10, was the Scallywompus 5K.  The main event was a half marathon.  There was also a 10K and a Kid’s Run.  Location was Tanger Outlet Stores in San Marcos, Texas, which is about a 40 minute to 1 hour drive from San Antonio, depending on your San Antonio location.  Since the time change to DLS was on Saturday night, with the clock going ahead, I think a few people were a bit tired, losing that hour of sleep, including me, so I was thankful I was only doing the 5K.  The Half started at 7:30, the 10K at 8:15 and the 5K at 8:35.  Please feel free to save/share my event report and photos located at the links below.
