Ironman Cozumel

 finished his first Olympic triathlon last year, his first half-ironman in June of this year, and Cozumel was his first Ironman.  Jesse competed in Ironman Cozumel with strong splits in all three disciplines.  He swam an incredible 55:51 for the 2.4 mile ocean swim, biked 6:01:02 (18.6mph) for the 112-mile windy bike, and ran approximately 4:16 (or ~9:45 min/mile) for the 26.2 mile run (his splits were jumbled).  Jesse finished his first Ironman in 11:22:44!

finished his fifth career Ironman on Sunday. Raul has done Ironmans Wisconsin, Arizona, Florida, and Coeur d'Alene prior to Cozumel.  Raul swam 1:13:53, biked 5:50, and ran a 4:11:06 (9:35 min/mile) marathon.  This was over a thirty minute personal best for Raul, with a finishing time of 11:25:01!

raced her second Ironman in 2010 and fourth for her career in Cozumel.  Karen came out of the water in third place in her AG and finished in fifth place.  She swam a speedy 1:00:13, biked 5:35:32 (or 20 mph), and ran a 4:09 (9:30 min/mile) marathon.  Karen finished in an overall time of 10:53:45.  Karen races for the Mark Allen Online Elite Team.

would probably tell you she had a very frustrating day.  Sheri's training leading up to Cozumel (her fifth Ironman) was going very well and Sheri felt extremely prepared and excited about this race.  But, it IS an Ironman and as the saying goes "anything can happen on race day."  Sheri's lower back unexpectedly tightened up on the bike and the pain was debilitating on the run.  I'm sure Sheri thought about dropping out of the race since her day was not going as planned and she was in a lot of pain.  But Sheri chose to finish the race with a slower time than she had hoped for rather than not finishing at all.  That takes courage, Sheri!  The good news is she has Ironman Texas in May, where she WILL knock it out of the park!!

San Antonio Rock and Roll Half Marathon

With more than 27,000 entrants in the San Antonio Marathon and Half Marathon this past weekend, OutRival Racing runner, Christi Moore, rocked and rolled this race finishing in an official 1:53:22. Christi actually ran about 4 minutes faster than this, but more than half of the field was held up by a passing train! This was Christi's first Half Marathon experience, although she has completed full Marathons in the past. Christi is getting ready the New Orleans Full Marathon next February. Christi was encouraged during this race by the other runners. In Christi's own words: "I ran the end of a race today with a guy that had his leg amputated. He ran with a prosthetic device. When I wanted to walk the hills, I pushed thru using him as inspiration. When we crossed the finish, he turned to me and said "I've never run that far before." I said, "I have--but never with someone as awesome as you!" It's pure joy to see a fellow runner with more to overcome than most, cross that finish line. AMAZING!"


  • This event benefits the Susan G. Komen Run for the Cure Foundation.
  • 2010 was the third edition of the San Antonio Rock n Roll Marathon and Half.
  • Austin’s Scott MacPherson finished first overall in the half-marathon in 1:04.
  • Edward Tabut of Kenya crossed the finish line in 2:17:04 to win the marathon.
  • This year, the marathon added a 2 person relay to it's half marathon event.
  • The start was moved to the corner of the Alamo and Market Street for 2010.
