    Flat/easy course, a little warm/humid for a northwesterner. It’s not as scenic as some of the courses I have run, but it was all new scenery to me, so that made it enjoyable. There were two port-a-potties set up at each station (so it was about a 15min wait to potty on the course). I did not stick around for the after party bc we were headed for Sea World right after, but it looked like a great time. Loved the medal!

    Nice medium sized race in beautiful SA, Texas. Packet pickup was easy, and in a nice shopping area of town. I really liked the bag with shoulder strap given out at expo. Race production was good, course was fine, nice medal! After race food was excellent. Found free street parking for expo and race. Overall a very good event!

    CONS*The course was not well laid out, it went from downtown out to breckenridge park along a very narrow trail with runners going on both sides as you turned around inside the park. Hard to pass people and crowded. One mile or so led to a trail of caliche looking rocks that has been attempted to be held down by asphalt at one time. I was just praying I didn’t fall this path led to cobbled bricks some which were hollowed out like tiny pot holes! Again the better bricks were only on a narrow strip. The last two miles went back on to the river walk again very narrow hard to pass and lead back to the Alamo which was the start and finish. I know SA pretty well and there are lots of scenic pretty parts to run sadly we didn’t go by any of them.:(
    * food at the end was average.long lines
    *expo/ packet pick up was unorganized
    pros
    * bad ass medal! nice tech shirt and a very nice canvas goodie bag, custom bibs cut out like the Alamo
    * free beer at the finish 🙂
    * signage was good along the course and intersections well secured by SA PD.

    That goodness SA had a cold front it saved me race started at a nice 45 degrees .

    I would probably not run this again unless the course was redone.

    But excited for my time. 🙂
