San Jose Rock & Roll Half Marathon
All you runners out there: time to sign up for this great event in San Jose. On a hopefully clear and cool Sunday morning 13 days from now on October 5, 2008, you and some 13,000 other runners will line up to cruise through 13.1 miles around downtown San Jose and the Rose Garden. Highlights of the course are: City Hall, Japan Town, the juvenile detention facility (kidding), San Pedro Square, a concert at HP Pavilion, University Avenue and a final run down The Alameda with a finish at Plaza de Cesar Chavez (where the snake statue is). The Rock & Roll 1/2 Marathon San Jose will be another great event for our town. Also keep in mind the Silicon Valley Leadership Group's Turkey Trot (their race site is not up yet) on Thanksgiving morning - a light 10k before stuffing yourself and watching football. If anyone wants to run with me, drop me a line. I will have a good group of runners for both events.
