2019 Race Number 22: Fiesta Especial 5K

My 22nd race of 2019 was the Fiesta Especial 5K on April 20th in Windcrest, Texas, a small city within the boundaries of San Antonio and Bexar County.  This race is part of the Fiesta San Antonio celebration, which started on April 18. Fiesta San Antonio is a 10-day long party held every April, with several kinds of events, including races, that raise funds primarily for local education entities, scholarships for students, and a few other causes.   This is one of the smaller races of Fiesta, with about 100 participants today. This race is also one of ‘inclusion’ and has runners and walkers of all abilities, including several disabled participants of various types of disabilities.

2019 Race Number 21: Confetti 5K

 My 21st race of 2019 was the Confetti 5K held on April 13 at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas.  This was the 3rd year this race has been held and I have done all of them since it started, so this is now one of my ‘streak’ races that I will hopefully continue to be able to do each year it is put on.  This is a very popular local event and at packet pickup one of the volunteers told me the race sold out at its limit of 1,000 participants.  Please feel free to save/share my event report and photos located at the links below.

2019 Race Number 19 San Antonio City Manager’s 5K

My 19th race of 2019 was the City Manager’s 5K (CM5k) held on March 31 at Roosevelt Park in San Antonio. This event started in 20007 to showcase the city’s concentration on increasing an interest in wellness among City of San Antonio employees and their families. As the 5K grew, it was eventually opened to the entire community.  For this year’s 5K, the city partnered with the YMCA and its annual Siclovia event, a free event that turns major city streets into a temporarily car-free safe place for people to run, ride bikes, take exercise classes, and more for about 5 hours. CM5K has become quite a popular event.  For this year, not sure how many participants there were, but it was well over 2,500, from just looking at the results.
