Some things that I noticed:
#1 They have blackbeans with breakfast which is delicious choice
#2 Its a much smaller city than I would have imagined
#3 Everything is Tex-Mex meaning cowboy boot statues, bright and vibrant colors: reds, oranges, yellows
I think that the best part of the trip, besides the food, was that my hotel was overlooking a national landmark! The Alamo!

I was able to run in the morning around the Alamo for a solid 2.5 miles before starting a long work day and I have to say that I do not think that it trumped the quesadilla that I had for dinner but oh well! While on my run, I got to see a lot of the historical statues and buildings along the Alamo and The RiverWalk which is an area that is filled with old restaurants and bars. As a matter of fact, I had dinner at the oldest restaurant in San Antonio that was located there but it was entirely too dark to take photos.

At the end of the day it was back to the airport but not without stopping on the way at a local place called Chacho's. Chacho's is pretty well known for their delicious margaritas! I got a strawberry one and I have to tell you, it was a little too good!
I indulged a bit in the local fair but tried to keep it as healthy as possible salads, meat, a hearty and healthy hotel breakfast and a solid run. All in all, I think a wonderful experience in a beautiful city!
