2019 Race 47 Winter in July 5K 10K

My 47th race of 2019 was the Winter in July 5K held on July 27th at Wheatley Heights sports complex in San Antonio, Texas.  There was also a 10K and a Kid’s Run.  This event raises funds for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis.  I try to do this event every year as it’s a personal one for me as, way back when, during my Air Force days, I was a volunteer at St. Jude’s.  Kids with cancer are some of the most courageous people I have ever met.

My 44th race of 2019 was the Shiner Half Moon Holidays 5K held on July 6 in Shiner, Texas at Green Dickson Park.  Start and finish area was near the Arthur Ward Pavilion in the park.  This event was part of Shiner’s Half-Moon Holidays annual celebration (July 5- July 6), which included a BBQ cookoff, a parade, youth baseball games, live music, and more.  One of the other participants told me he had heard there were about 90 participants registered for this one, so a nice turn-out for a smaller event.  Beneficiary of this race was one of the local youth athletic groups.

2019 Race Number 43 Let Freedom Run 5K

My 43rd race of 2019 was Let Freedom Run 5K held on July 4.  Put on by Purnell Racing, this event was held in Schertz, Texas.  Starting at 9:15 a..m., participants ran or walked the Schertz 4th of July parade route that started shortly after the run started.  This is a fun event with lots of parade watchers cheering you on as you run or walk along the route. If I remember correctly, this event supported the families of our fallen military and families of wounded warriors.
