2010 Dallas Rock N Roll Half Marathon : Photos : Pictures

The firstl Dallas Rock N Roll Half Marathon happened last Sunday.

The organisers made a big statement : They can compete with any half marathon out there. Over 9,400 athletes began the 13.1-mile run from Dallas City Hall. The starting line was flanked by Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders dancing to speaker-thumping music echoing off glass office towers while thousands watched wave after wave of hundreds begin their run. The entire race, from start to finish in Fair Park, had a festive flair. Live bands entertained the runners each mile of the course, including the still sleeping neighborhoods of Highland Park, Lakewood, and Swiss Avenue.

ING Miami Full & Half Marathon 2010 Photos : Pictures : Images

ING Miami half and full marathon 2010 took place over the weekend.Some interesting stories of everyday heros who finished the race were posted on miami herald.

My favorite inspiring story was this one.

Halfway through the marathon, FIU student Andy Wu, 19, took off the shoes from his aching feet and handed them to a friend. To soften the impact on his bare feet, he ran on the yellow stripe in the middle of the road. “I actually ran better because it helped my posture,” said Wu, who finished in 4:30. “But running over the bridge and gravel really hurt.”

I Loved the never say die spirit!

Chevron Houston Marathon 2010 Photos : Images : Pictures

The last runner to cross the finish line at the 2010 Chevron Houston Marathon was Diane Kassab (56) her finish time was 6 hours, 1 minute and 5 seconds.

When asked by houston chronicle why she took so long to complete the race, this was her reply

It was fun. The spirit is tremendous,” said Kassab, of Houston. “I danced to every band. That was probably my mistake.

Another interesting observation was that the former US president George H. W. Bush was at Mile 19 to give all runners a hand shake. I think that was brilliant of him.

I tried to find photos from houston marathon 2010 and I found them at Flickr, see all pictures at stratblues page.

2009 Honolulu Marathon Race Photos : Pictures : Images

23,000 marathon runners hit the streets of Hawaii for the 2009 Honolulu marathon. I don’t know why this race is so popular with Japanese runners, 15,000 of them ran the race.

A lady, Honolulu photographer, who lives along the Honolulu marathon route took some awesome photos, from the images you would have been forgiven if you thought the images were of Tokyo marathon. The Japanese were all over.

New York Marathon 2009 : Race Photos & Images & Pictures

The 2009 New York Marathon was as colorful as always. Although we celebrate the runners we forget the spectators who equally do a magnificent job of taking photos.

For me, two Images stood out from the 2009 NYC marathon.

This Frenchman who came along with the Eiffel tower.
