Randall 3rd at Dallas Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon

Glenn Randall headed down to yet another Rock 'n' Roll half marathon, this time in Dallas, TX, where he continued to chip away his time over the past few months with a 1:06:21, good for a 3rd place OA finish. Despite the windy conditions, Randall really got some motivation from the Dallas Cowboys' cheerleaders and also experienced a bit of history when he ran over the spot where JFK was assassinated on November 22, 1963.

Randall was leading the field through the first half of the race and continued battling it out with eventual race winner and 2012 race champion, Sammy Kiplagat, and and 2nd place Enoch Nadler, until a few miles to go, when Kiplagat made the final move to solidify his win in 1:05:56.

And for his podium finish, Randall was given an large moose antler! 

Strange things happen down in Texas.
