IL: San Antonio Half Marathon

November 16, 2008

I traveled to San Antonio to meet Colleen and her friend to run in my first half marathon! On Friday we toured San Antonio and walked around the famous riverwalk. It was gorgeous along the river and nice weather in the 80s as well.

Remember the Alamo! There is no basement, trust me I asked. Oddly, the Alamo was a lot smaller than I imagined, but interesting nonetheless.

The race started early Sunday morning on a bright sunny day in the 30s. By the time we finished, it was in the 70s and sunny. I finished in 2:21:30. Both knees were quite sore, especially with stairs. This picture was taken in the lobby, after a hot shower and nap. Myself, Shannon and Colleen.

Now that my first half marathon is done, time to start training for the next one!
