SMTX Fitness: 5Ks, Fun Runs & Triathlons

September 21, 2017

After a sizzling summer in San Marcos, we are always eager to welcome the cool(ish) crisp weather that fall inevitably brings. The unbearably hot temperatures become a tad more moderate by Texas standards, make exploring natural San Marcos a must-do for the season. One of the best ways to explore natural San Marcos, and add some fitness into your routine, is to sign up for one of the many 5Ks and triathlons held in San Marcos during the fall.
