My 74th race of 2017 was the Day of the Dead 5K. Held on Oct 28 at 5 PM at a local San Antonio Park. There was also a 10K. We had a cool front come in, so it was relatively cool, nice. Even so, the 10K route was right into the sun and they had a few hills. We 5K folks had a pretty flat course and shade along the way. I ended up with 33 minutes and change and got 2nd in my age group. I think we were the only two in our age group, lol, because the age group was 60 – 99.
After the event, there was a costume contest, some door prizes, and also lots of goodies like Kiolbassa Sausage and Alamo Beer – my favorite locally brewed beer. Mucho thanks to all the volunteers, sponsors, timers, etc. all the folks that made this one happen for us.
