Oh, H-E-B, it's almost too easy with you guys lately.
Enthusiastic H-E-B employees lined Main Avenue outside their headquarters to cheer on Rock 'n' Roll marathoners running down the street as part of the official course, one with a sign that read "One day you won't be able to do this, but today is not that day!"
The route had runners jaunting down a stretch of Main that H-E-B currently seeks to close in order to expand their campus. While the sign itself is a bit weird, motivationally (personally I'd rather not ponder my body's eventual decay while coming up on mile 10, I'm just not that Zen), it's made a whole lot worse knowing that, if H-E-B gets its way, runners indeed won't be able to access that lovely stretch for a marathon or just a jog around the block. But hey, today is not that day! Here, take some Hill Country Fare water and don't say we never did nothin' for ya, OK?
