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.
But before runners take their marks — and before the pain — they need to check off some tasks to make sure they are fully ready for the miles ahead of them.
Here is a list of tips for runners, either on their first or their 10th race, to know before the race and on the big day itself.
Before the race
Set up your run tracker: Friends and family of runners can see their progress on the course with a running tracker app.
The app provides pace, time and location in real-time, and family and friends can receive push alerts on progress made.
