My Big Run
This year’s Global Running Day celebration will look a little different. Races have been cancelled, plans derailed, and we are all adjusting to new normals. Yes, race day will look different. But our mission remains the same: inspire the runner in everyone. With that in mind, and in partnership with Brooks Running, we’ve made a few changes to The Big Run that we have known and loved for the past three years.
My Big Run is personal. We understand each of you have unique goals, and we want to celebrate with you when you achieve them.
My Big Run is an inclusive celebration of getting out there and crossing your own finish line, despite the challenges we are all currently facing. We’ll provide the support, encouragement, and know-how to keep you motivated along the way. You’re about to gain a ton of new running buddies.
How are we going to make this happen?
On June 3, we’re going virtual! Additionally, you have the option to choose from five race distances this year. Distances include: 1 mile, 5K, 10K, half marathon, full marathon. After you submit your results, we will upload to our national results page. We will provide directions on how to submit results.
Registration is $10. What does that get you?
A $15 voucher: Redeemable at your locally owned and operated Fleet Feet, or on fleetfeet.com if you do not have a local Fleet Feet. *Exclusions may apply. Check with your local store before redeeming for details.
Virtual race-day kit: Includes your virtual medal image to post on social media, plus print-at-home bib and photo props. We want to see your accomplishment when you finish your run so we can celebrate with you!
Training and tips: Weekly invitations to our training content and tips, and access to our Fleet Feet coaches for any questions you may have. We know some of you are new to running and walking, and we’re here to help.
The chance to win some very cool prizes. More details coming soon!
BONUS: For an additional $15, you can purchase a limited edition My Big Run branded face cover!
Please note these face covers will ship to you after Global Running Day.

Our employees will be required to wear masks at all times & we ask that customers keep theirs on until seated at their table. Hand sanitizer, wipes, disinfectants & cleaners are readily available & will be used throughout the night.
All cocktails will be served with individually wrapped straws & bagged garnishes. Bartenders will have no direct contact with any ingredients to your drink. Our glassware has & always will be vigorously washed, sanitized & rinsed in hot water. Plastic cups will be available upon request.
We are 100% confident that LUNA is ready for reopening & that our protocols are appropriate & thorough. Our reputation & safety/comfort of our customers is of the highest priority & we would never jeopardize that.

“The power of music is amazing. I’ve known my whole life that this is what I’ve wanted to do and I’ve had confirmations at every step that this is what I’m supposed to do.”
Ruben V is an accomplished artist. He’s released eight solo CDs, 14 group albums and averages over 120 shows a year. He is a guitar player, songwriter, producer and family man. He’s built a huge following of Ruben V Band fans – all while keeping a sense of humor and a genuine Texas charm.
But first and foremost, there is the music. It’s a fresh, smooth blend of blues, Latin, soul, and rock. It’s an ambitious mix of the music that moves him and in his skillful hands, becomes a truly energizing and enjoyable experience. The result is stylistically different from his peers – it’s alluring, soulful, fun and mature. As he says, “it’s everything I love about music.”
For a man who would turn out to be such a celebrated guitar player, Ruben was self-taught – old school style. “I would slow down our old 45 albums on the record player and learn that way. I was also front and center at every concert – watching and listening. Then it was just hitting the road. There’s no better way to learn.” Hitting the road began at 15 for Ruben, who played in a string of bands and eventually landed an Indie record deal with his heavy metal band, Final Assault. The unexpected death of a friend, the band’s bass player, brought everything to a halt for Ruben and he began questioning his direction. Again, it was music that pulled him back in. “I was in a dark time in my life when I saw Stevie Ray Vaughan in concert. It was the opposite of the heavy metal bands that were defining the time. I wanted to play Stevie’s kind of music – to bend a guitar string like that because that’s what I felt.” That performance is what drove him back to writing and playing, but this time, he surrounded himself with his brothers and the group began touring clubs in the area. As time passed, the shows became bigger and the four albums they put out became heavier, but, again, that sound wasn’t what Ruben had envisioned for himself. Forced to confront the different directions the brothers were heading, Ruben parted ways with the group to pursue his own musical path – one that was true to him. That becomes the essence of Ruben V’s music.

Walk on the River 2.0: The African Influence
Experience Walk on the River 2.0: The African Influence in San Antonio TX, Online Documentary Screening!
Join us Sunday June 7, for an online screening of “Walk on the River 2.0: The African Influence in San Antonio, TX.”
As the first civil settlement in the state of Texas, there are a ton of historical sites and legendary tales that have helped to shape the culture of our community. In the original documentary film Walk on the River: A Black History of the Alamo City we shared the African American experience from the time of Emancipation (roughly 1865) to Integration and the end of Jim Crow segregation (roughly 1965).
In this second installment, Walk on the River 2.0 we speak about the presence and influence people of African descent have had in this area before and during enslavement, including:
-The African Presence in the Americas before Columbus
-The Moors in Spain
-Blacks at the Battle of the Alamo
-Slavery in San Antonio
-Emancipation Celebrations in Texas (Juneteenth)
-African Symbols in the city… and more
Most people don’t realize that African Americans were present at the battle of the Alamo or that there were Black survivors freed by the Mexican Army. Neither do many realize that there were slaves sold downtown in Alamo Plaza or that it is documented that city officials bought and sold enslaved Africans. We reveal this history and so much more in this 50 minute documentary film.
Walk on the River 2.0 features interviews from:
-Mario Salas – Historian, Professor, Former City Councilman
-Ramon Vasquez – member of the Tap Pilam Coahuiltecan Nation
-Nettie Hinton – Community Activist
-Dr. Runoko Rashidi – Author, Lecturer, Scholar …and more
The Screenings will take place online using the ZOOM platform.
Once you’ve purchase your ticket, you will be sent an email with a link to the event.
**On the day of the event you will be emailed a reminder with the time date and private link.
After the movie is completed, we will host a live Q&A session with the producer and director of the film, where you will be able to ask questions and post comments about the movie.
**The price of this event? You choose what its worth to you. We are using the honor system for this online screening, so you are able to pay what you would like – $1 or $100 it is totally up to you.
This feature length documentary film is produced by Aundar Ma’at and directed by Born Logic Allah for Melaneyes Media LLC. Walk on the River 2.0: The African Influence in San Antonio, TX is a proud recipient of the 2019 San Antonio Local Filmmakers Grant presented by the San Antonio Film Commission.
