Aikman finishes half in 1:48.11

Troy Aikman was one of 14,000 runners who participated in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas Half Marathon on Sunday. He finished in one hour, 48 minutes and 11 seconds. He finished 1,206 overall in his second half marathon.

Aikman, who ran his first half last March in Arlington, was inspired by his personal connection to the event’s charitable tie with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

“It was a perfect day for running,” Aikman said in a press release. “My mom is a breast-cancer survivor, so it’s wonderful that Komen does such great work raising a lot of money and bringing awareness to breast cancer. To have the half marathon here and to get so many people to participate, and to the people who came out to support the event along the way, was amazing. There were no real dead spots for 13 miles. Dallas is a great place, and I’m glad it's home for me.”

Carlos Cordero Gomez, an Olympian for Mexico, won in 1:03.58. It was his first road race in the U.S. Gomez finished 32nd in the marathon at the 2008 Beijing Games. Andrew Cook of Flower Mound was second in 1:07.27.

Cook's wife, Melissa Cook, won the women's race in 1:17.09.

many looks for the method for the success, do not look for the reason for the defeat! Many matters, are not because achieves with difficulty only then lets the people lose the confidence
