Rock 'n' Roll San Jose Half Marathon 2011 on San Jose Fitness

I got on a roll  while writing about this year's Rock 'n' Roll San Jose Half Marathon primarily inspired by my opportunity to interview  Meb Keflezlezighi, who is very personable.

It was tough for me going in - so far as media he is everywhere, and has been for some time. After about 20 hours of research I realized there was very little that was new to say, so I focused on the things that interested me.

I found out he met his wife here in San Jose - they were both attending a soccer festival.  He has a brother who works here.  Plus I was able to find out more about his workout aside from running (of course everyone publishes info about his running training).  I haven't written everything yet - I'm trying to do bite-sized articles since the Examiner format is kind of clunky. 

Below are links to what I have so far about the Marathon - I hope you'll take a look at all of it - share the stories, help me promote it, etc 

As always:  If you like it, comment on the stories. If you don't like it, or find fault, email me. :-)
