Intriguing course at the Alamo 13.1

My family moved to San Antonio when I was still in high school so I had many fond memories of my time there and plenty of reasons to sign up for the Alamo 13.1 Half Marathon. In addition, when I researched the race, I found the course to be quite intriguing with a route starting downtown then passing through the famous Alamo within the first mile, continuing on to the historic Missions of Concepción and San José for the first half of the race. The following image shows the bulk of the Half Marathon route---for the map showing the entire route, click on the following link: http://alamo131.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/web-Alamo131-262Map-v2.pdf

Once the course reaches mile 7, it then turns back towards downtown and eventually hits various segments that follow along the scenic Riverwalk on its way to the finish line at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. I initially had some apprehension about the segments going through the Riverwalk being narrow for a large groups of runners, however, the race reviews I read on BibRave.Com indicate that has not been an issue at all, so I am looking forward to what promises to be quite a memorable race.
