Be My Valentine 2022

Huarache Turbo’s 11th Annual Be My Valentine 5K, held at McAllister Park in San Antonio, is a festive Valentine’s themed race. 🥳💕 Participants choose between race shirts that say “I’m single” or “ I’m taken.”

There was LOVE EVERYWHERE! ❤️ …and plenty of photo ops to prove it! 😍

There were several Love-themed backdrops and fun photo booth props for taking memorable pics with your Valentine or Pal-entine! 💘 Shannon was my Gal-entine for the day! 👩🏻‍❤️‍👩🏼

It was a very cold morning but we talked and laughed and snapped selfies with friends before the race. ❄️ The cold never bothers us anyway. 😉

We took oh so many selfies! 🤳🏻 🥰

Anthony Zamora, always an awesome MC, was looking good in his red hot suit! ❤️‍🔥

Huarache Turbo runners show up in the best costumes! 😎 From the race directors to the runners everyone not only dresses to run but dresses for fun! 😍

Even Scottydog wore his sparkly tutu dress! 🥰 He, John and I had fun posing for a pic as the sun was beginning to shine! ☀️

Off we go! 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻🏃🏻‍♂️💕

Even with a lingering chill in the air, it was a beautiful day for love and running! 💖

The deer 🦌 were also enjoying this beautiful day at McAllister Park. 🌳

The course was a simple out-and-back through the park but how sweet was this heart-shaped turnaround at the halfway point? 💞

From start to finish…. SO MUCH LOVE! 💖

This 5K was “just a warmup” for Shannon! She made a quick outfit change after the finish and then continued to run 17 more miles to complete a 20 mile marathon training run! 😎 What a Rock Star! ⭐️

This is definitely one of my favorite holiday themed races! ❤️ I’ve run the 5K three times now and in 2019 they offered a Half Marathon distance, so of course the Hubster and I ran the “Be My Other Half” together. I hope they bring the Half Marathon back for 2023 but even if they don’t, I’m still gonna sign up for the 5K! 😍

You can’t have a fun race like this without a beautiful medal to go with it! 🏅 Great race bling, as always! 💖
