Rock 'n' Roll Marathon
is upon us, San Antonio. Though some of us can indulge in bowls of pasta without having to run a marathon, runners of the event will want to check out these specials offered by local restaurants to load up on carbs before the big race begins and after it ends. Here a few perks runners should definitely take advantage of this year.
