Cold and wet weather doesn't stop diehard Dallas Marathon runners

  • By
Cold and wet weather in North Texas yesterday didn't stop dedicated marathon runners. Thousands of people came to prepare for their first day of the 2-day event in the BMW Dallas Marathon irrespective of the harsh weather conditions.
 
Sameer Paroo said that the weather is nuts and he couldn’t take out his hands out of warmer but he was ready for the race. Diana Chavez, another runner said that she is full-packed with three layers of jackets, a couple of layers of socks and all set to run.
 

This is the 48th annual Dallas Marathon that kicked off yesterday morning in Downtown that will start and finish by city hall line. There are 4 events 10K, 5K, 2-mile walk and kids race. Almost 5,000 people signed up but the weather allowed only a half of them to turn up. Some of them including Ernie Arnold had a special reason. He said he is doing things to overcome his fear. He will turn 40 in February. His goal is to do 5k a month and complete 12 by February. This will be 11th in the row and the next month, he will achieve his goal.
 
This year, cold and wet weather did not deter runners. It was really a challenging experience, especially for the kids.
