The Half-Marathon began in Dolores, and then went through Jinotepe, San Marcos, Diriamba, back through Dolores, and ended in Jinotepe. Luke and Isaiah were the 2nd and 3rd place finishers overall. Jesse, Natalie, Erin, and Molly all finished in good times.
We are proud of them! Enjoy the photo gallery of scenes from this morning’s race.

The overall winner is the guy on the right. The guy on the left was a pace setter and not officially a contestant.
And here comes Luke…
2nd place overall!
A short time later came Isaiah…
3rd place overall!
Then along came Jesse…

Everyone is smiles.
“Hey, my name is Luke and I got 2nd place.”
“Hi, my name is Isaiah. I took home 3rd and let my amigo Luke take 2nd!” (not quite how it happened. 🙂 )
“Yeah…sitting feels better than running at this moment!”
