SAN ANTONIO—For years, the San Antonio Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and Half extravaganza was plagued by warm temperatures and high humidity in all but the first year (2008).

Erik Stanley, Betzy Jimenez Dominate Final IBM At The Domain

If this was the final race for the IBM Uptown Classic 10-K at The Domain—and in all likelihood it was—it couldn't have been a more perfect send off for the 19th annual running of this event. On a morning that must have been created by the running gods (clear with a temp of 57 degrees, [...]
