Ghosts and a Half Marathon ...

Annie and I are getting ready to head out to San Antonio for the Rock n' Roll Half Marathon tomorrow. We will both be running the half distance this year.

Annie is going to try and run under a 1:55.  This is the time that qualifies you for early entry into the Houston Marathon and if she misses this time then you must rely on the luck of the draw in the lotto.  The weather is supposed to be a little on the mild to warm side, which sort of sucks!

I really have no time goals as my legs are only about 75% recovered from last weekend's 50K Trail Run. I've done a couple of short runs and feel okay but the "zip" is definitely missing from my step so I am just going to run and see how it turns out!

I am more excited about staying at the Historic Menger Hotel directly across the street from the Alamo. I dig old buildings and the history that surrounds them. The Menger's known to be one of the most Haunted Hotels in America!  Booooooo....

This looks bogus to me but maybe I will be proven wrong tonight:

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Thanks for Reading,



  1. One year I did a race in St. Petersburg, FL and we stayed in an old hotel. One day we saw a bunch of people in the hallway with ghostbusterometers and videos. They were wearing windbreakers that said KPI (Kissimmee Paranormal Investigators). They were a little upset at us since our bikes kept upsetting the aura. True story.

    Go, annie!

  2. Wahoo!! That sounds like so much fun!

    You should totally bring a voice recorder so you can get some EVPs. haha

    GO ANNIE!!

  3. Pretty impressed that you are even attempting it after last week! My legs would say NO!

    Good luck to Annie...hope she nails it!

  4. Aren't you afraid that the ghosts will keep you up and you won't be rested for the race? :) I would be totally freaked out if I stayed there even if there weren't ghosts. My mind would scare me!

    Good luck to you and Annie!

  5. Have a great race you guys! Tell Annie good luck!

  6. Qualify for 2012? I thought she was already in the race? Good luck and have fun!

  7. The hotel looks awesome - I get excited about that kind of thing so you will have to tell us about it!

    And best of luck on the race!

  8. I've been in the lobby of that hotel once...have a good time.

    Even if that video isn't bogus, it looks like a pretty boring ghost. What I'd like to see is a video of you walking around insulting the ghosts. Even if there isn't some sort of reveal, you will no doubt be entertaining.

  9. Good luck to the both of you

    Totally fake ghost

  10. Ah... definitely bogus video. So take your night vision camera and do your own ghost hunting. LOL!!!

    Enjoy your race tomorrow.

  11. Hope Annie made her time. San Antonio is a fun city Iv'e spent 7 weeks of my life there. Some good parks and trails outside of the city too. I have a rock n roll half coming up in Miami. I look forward to hearing about your take on your experience.
