Happy Friday!

It’s a big weekend for the Mouton family. Leslie’s daughter graduates from UT-Austin on Saturday! Congratulations from your GMSA family Nicole.

The weather is looking superb for Rock N Roll Marathon on Sunday. Good luck runners! I’m looking forward to checking out the Christmas lights on the Riverwalk Saturday night. I wanted to do a river barge ride but reservations fill up fast this time of year (like ‘sold out’ fast). It’ll still be nice to take that stroll down our world-famous waterway!

Have a good one. :)

Pre-race tips for runners ahead of the Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon weekend in San Antonio

Can you feel the excitement? The carb-fest, the expo and the start lines are right around the corner. Thousands of runners will hit the street this weekend for the Rock 'n' Roll marathon and half-marathon Sunday, and the 10K and 5K on Saturday.
