Running past landmarks like the Tower of the Americas, The Alamo, Mission Concepcion, and San Fernando Cathedral, the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon is a trip down San Antonio’s memory lane. All weekend long, racers will be coming out for this two-day event on Dec. 1-2, enjoying live music from Langhorne Slim & The Law, health expos, six different races, and tons more SA community engagement. There’s so much to love about the atmosphere of this high-energy, historically-decorated race weekend. Yet getting to the starting line of such a marathon isn’t always as lively as the day itself — because training is hard, Y’all. But if this weekend’s race has you feeling inspired to add “run a marathon” to your bucket list, we’ve got the methods you need to train for the long run.
