2019 Race Number 26 Race for Seniors 5K

My 26th race of 2019 was the Run For Seniors 5K.  There was also a 2.5 mile walk.  Held on May 4th at Mission County Park in San Antonio, this event supports services for local-area senior citizens.  And if you are 60 years and older, entry into this race is FREE.  Always nice to get a free race with as many races as I do during the year.  Please feel free to save/share my event report and photos located at the links below.

2019 Race Number 25, Run To Remember 5K, April 28

My 25th race, and third of the April 27 – 28h weekend, was the Run to Remember 5K, held on Sunday, April 28th at Comanche Park in San Antonio. There was also a 10K.   Also known as “Beards and Beans” this event was started in 2012 by two brothers, Miguel (Beans) and Matt (Beard) as a friendly sibling rivalry to raise funds and awareness about Alzheimer’s.  Whichever brother raises the most, the other brother has to either eat a full plate of beans or shave off his beard. This year closed out the events of Fiesta San Antonio, a 10-day celebration in April raising funds for student scholarships and various other nonprofits.

2019 Race Number 24, SARR Fiesta Fandango 2.6 Mile Parade Run

My 24th race, and second of the April 27 – 28th weekend, was the Fiesta Fandango 2.6 miler.  This is more of a fun-run than anything else as only the top male and female finishers get awards. This is a very unique event, however, as it is an evening run and participants run the course of the Fiesta Flambeau parade, the largest night-time parade in the US.  This event was part of the Fiesta San Antonio, an annual 10-day celebration in April that has many ongoing events that help raise funds for local student scholarships and other nonprofits.

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.
