Half-Marathon

As I mentioned in my last post, Dan ran the San Antonio Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon this weekend.  It was the inaugural rock 'n roll marathon for San Antonio with a band at every mile.  There were 30,000 runners participating.  

When Dan ran his first half marathon (13.1 miles) in 2006 he did a lot of training and finished in 2 hours and 8 minutes.  This year he did year very little training (only two long runs -- one 7 mile and one 10 mile) and ran just for fun.  He finished in 2 hours and 1 minute!  I am so proud!
 
Some friends of ours snapped some pics, but they are getting married on Saturday, so uploading marathon photos isn't exactly at the top of their To Do list.  If we end up getting pictures, I will be sure to post them.  

Here's a photo of Dan with Jude after the 2006 half.



Since we're taking a stroll down memory lane, here's a picture of Jude, Indigo and me the night before the 2006 half marathon.  Can't see Indi?!  That's because I was 4 months pregnant.
