    Daiki Matsuda you were incredible, finishing in the top 70 for your age division and a very stellar performance of 01:37:48 for the 1/2 marathon!

      Thanks! It was my first R'n'R and 1/2, and I enjoyed every moment of it. Huge thanks to the volunteers, cheering crowd and the SDR group for support!

    You did a great job Paris Cox finishing right at 3:00 for the 1/2!

      Paris, if keep focused on your goal, you can easily break 5 hours in the full marathon next year!

      That's pretty amazing just starting in January. Most people take years before they do a 1/2 marathon. Just think what you can do next year or even later this year in another race. I was just cleared by my doctors to start running again in February after major surgery in December. I was told today that I will probably have arthrosocopy surgery on my right knee which will set me back again for awhile.

    2013 San Diego Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 Marathon - James Hartline talks about God and faith in the Lord as he navigates the three miles it will take him to get to the start of the 2013 San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. What you may not know by this video is that the transportation didn't show up to get James to the 13.1 mile race, thus he was running at 6am to get to the start without hardly any food for the prior 24 hours and only 5 hours sleep the night before. Yet, a 16 year-long battle with AIDS, a 24 year-long battle with Hepatitis C, several bouts of cancer, 2 knee reconstructions, an ankle reconstruction, HIV wasting and other pre-race challenges did not stop James from completing the race in 01:51:23 less than six months after facing a near-death experience and major open abdomen surgery requiring seven days in the hospital. If James can run and complete this race, what is stopping you from doing it? Now get out there and run your race brothers and sisters! http://youtu.be/f22AQVunErs

    Jessica Luehrs you finished in the top 500 in the female 18-24 division with an outstanding time of 02:13:23 for the half marathon. You are definitely another young runner who will do great things in upcoming races!

  • James H.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Gary Jalaty you truly set the incredible example for all of us SDR runners finishing the full marathon at age 64 with a time of 03:49:38 and placing in the top 10 in your division.

    Lucilia Portela you maintained a very steady and focused pace throughout your successful completion of the 1/2 marathon, finishing the race in 02:27:24. What a great finish!

  • James H.

    Christian Artesi, you definitely are one to watch in the racing arena. You were fantastic with a time of 1:36:51 for the half marathon putting you in the top 600 for the entire race field and in the top 60 runners in the 18-24 age division. We are very proud of you!

    June 3, 2013

    Congratulations Tina Breen on a spectacular 1/2 Marathon result of 01:58:18 and placing 23rd in your division! Your example of dedication to the run is an awesome role model for our San Diego runners!

      I honestly had no prior knowledge to any of your history until now. And although I am only just recently a part of SDR, it is remarkable how much you have accomplished in spite of these life challenges.

    Also, I just received a message from Lee Chase, owner of Tiger!Tiger! bar on 3025 El Cajon Blvd (we run past during the half) that he has sweet discounts for those coming in for post-run recovery food/bevs with your bib! *Also have veg/vegan/omnivore options for food!

    June 1, 2013

    • Aweesan

      I finished 1:57 after a strong start but wasn't feeling "on it" all day/weekend, then started to drop after mile 6. I was so disappointed because I was really on pace for it, esp. 2 weeks ago feeling very well, and the course/weather/neighborh­oods/volunteers all were so good!

      June 3, 2013

    • James H.

      Aweesan 1:57 is a great result, but considering that your pace was initially faster, I think your next competition will be a much faster result with a few minor adjustments just prior to the race. You did very well!

      June 2, 2013

  • James H.

    Well, the good and the bad. The good, I finished stronger than I had registered to finish. I registered for 1:54 for the half. I actually would have finished even faster, but around mile 8, my right knee became so excruciatingly painful that I had to run with a limp and almost entirely with just my left leg doing all the work for the final 4 miles of the 1/2 marathon. The other thing is that I ended up really late to the start, and had to run 3 miles to get to the start of the race. Then, I realized I had forgotten my chip and had to get a whole new number and chip. Here's my result: Finished In:

    • Peter

      sorry about your injury.

      June 2, 2013

    • James H.

      I'm just not sure what I am going to do about it. I know I have a torn medial meniscus from a recent MRI, but this feels even more painful. I'm just hoping and praying it is not my ACL which has been replaced twice in that knee in 1998 & 1999. I'm on the verge of putting everything together for a documentary, book and training program on how I recovered from a near-death experience in December of 2012 to run the 1/2 marathon less than six months later. It just can't be a messed up knee that will get in the way. Here's one of my videos I made during my training for the 1/2 marathon that will be included in the documentary: http://youtu.be/9WBDV...­

      Mr. Hulk are you going to be around the finish line? I can get you in under the "family reunion" celebration area if you want to come in with all the other runners to celebrate after the race. I'll be under H for Hartline.

    • Running H.

      Hey, James. No, unfortunately I'm going to be working from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. But, my property right between the course. When the runners are going down Park and later 15th I think, that's where I am working out in East Village. I'll be pulling in early around the time the half-marathon finishers are coming through.

    The new running store Milestone Running in North Park had a great set up at the R 'n' R expo at the convention center. They are definitely going to be a valuable resource and asset to our underserved running community in the North Park area. Stop in and chat with Chad for great post-marathon deals on shoes and apparel and he can also do a free computerized gait analysis of you at the store. http://www.milestonerunning.com/

    I got to attend a private showing this afternoon of the spectacular movie Spirit of the Marathon 2. This is a beautiful and empowering must see movie documenting the lives of 7 ordinary people who came out of obscurity to train for and compete in the Rome Marathon. I received a personal invitation from the wonderful producer of the movie Gwendolyn Twist. The movie will have its world premiere on June 12th in 600 theaters nationwide, including 6 theaters in San Diego County. Here I am pictured at the private showing with Gwendolyn, featured runner in the movie Julie Weiss and her fiancé David Levine. Julie is a tremendous athlete and a beautiful spirit who's has gained national prominence for completing 52 marathons in 52 weeks to bring awareness and funds to the battle against pancreatic cancer, a disease that took the life of her father. http://t.co/qKzj0IbbjX

    At the R 'n' R marathon expo - Day 1, I also got to meet the producer and the director of the upcoming movie/documentary Spirit of the Marathon 2. Wonderful people and so gracious and kind. They took several photos with me and were very interested in my life story about running for my recovery from a near-death experience in December. The producer, Gwendolen Twist, gave me two tickets and invited me to be her personal guest at a special private premiere today of their new movie at the Gaslamp 15. Their new movie Spirit of the Marathon 2 will have its public world premiere in San Diego at 8 theaters on June 12th. http://youtu.be/lYDiAnNlHPQ

    During yesterday's Day 1 at the R 'n' R expo, I got to sit in on a presentation by running royalty: all world record holders during their careers, Jim Ryan, Steve Scott and Rod Dixon - all on the stage at the same time. It was awesome! During the Q & A, I got to ask a question. My question, which got great answers from all three men, was "As a result of your individual record breaking and historically important running careers, who have you had the most influence on?" I also got a book from Jim Ryan, my running hero and he autographed it and took a photo with me. He wrote in the book to me, "Go with God, James" Jim Ryan. http://t.co/2o5NvFUPpZ

    May 29, 2013 Episode of Running4God with James Hartline. James is training for the 2013 San Diego Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 Marathon, a 13 mile race. Just 5 1/2 months ago, James had a near-death experience, the result of a nearly ruptured gall bladder and an ensuing open abdomen surgery. This event event occured at the same time that James has been battling AIDS for 16 years, Hepatitis C for 24 years and numerous other ailments and reconstructive surgeries to his right knee and left ankle. As a dedicated Christian, James believes that God equips His people to overcome incredible obstacles through the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit and an appropriate understanding of the Bible. Follow James on his incredible journey from sickness to healing as he runs his race for the Lord Jesus Christ, carrying the message that with "God all things are possible!" James Hartline is Running4God. http://youtu.be/YSBJvjKvCZU

      (Ah, I put 1:55 when I signed up and got corral 5). At that early, you either Stand in line for porta-pitties at least once, do stretching/warm ups or meet with people. I don't drink coffee to note if they have any pre-race stuff like that.

      Hopefully I'm going to do some videography and photos before the race for my documentary and books about my recovery from a near-death experience and surgery in December of 2012 and my participation in the RnR 1/2 less than six months later. One of the books is titled Preparing For My Departure: But Running My Race Until I Leave. I'm still working out how a couple of my photographers are going to be set up there at the start and then getting to a couple of the race points, maybe 4, 6, 8 and finish, etc. How difficult do you think it will be getting them around to the other race points in the midst of the crowds? I live about 3 miles from the start, but my good friend lives closer in downtown, so maybe I can store stuff at her place overnight to make arrival easier. Not that I will be using it during this race, but I'm experimenting with the idea of attaching a goPro (or similar) mini-camera to something on me while running as I think it would make for some interesting video shots.
