2018 Race 91, Frosty 5K

My 91st event of 2018 was the Frosty 5K and 5-Miler held on December 24 at 9 a.m. in Olmos Park, and affluent neighborhood in San Antonio, Texas. With this event done, I beat my all-time high of races done in 2017 (90) by 1 event this year. Also, this year is the 300th anniversary of the founding of San Antonio – our Tricentennial. So three of us – my friend Don ivey, who came up with the original idea; my friend Bernadette; and me – decided we should shoot for 300 races completed by the end of the year. I was a little short of 100 due to a hospital stay in May and some medical issues, but got 92 done. Bernadette did 104 for the year and Don did 108 for the year, giving us a grand total of 303 races for the year, so we made it! Happy Tricentennial San Antonio!

This event was hosted by Alamo 180, a local personal training-and-fitness facility – kind of like Crossfit, but a whole lot better than Crossfit in my personal opinion. The business owner has kindly let us invade her space for this event for the past few mornings of Christmas Eve and the start and finish was in front of her store. This event also raised funds and needed items – gently used running shoes, running and walking gear, etc – for the Street2Feet program, a local fitness progam to help the homeless.
