Loved the run this morning through historic San Marcos. Music throughout the course made a cold, wet run so much more enjoyable. Kept my holiday spirit fuzzy and warm. Hot chocolate and warm Chick-fil-A sandwich definitely hit the spot after a cold run. Such a great price too, includes a tech shirt and a chance at some really awesome door prizes. Thank you for putting this race together for the community!
