Sunday was anything but a day of rest for Jo Dee Messina. She took part in the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon & ½ Marathon benefiting Susan G. Komen, finishing the half-marathon in 2:36:50. About an hour after crossing the finish line, she then took to the stage to headline the event’s Finish Line Concert outside the Alamodome. She did so in her running gear and half-marathon finishers medal.

“Today was awesome, it could not have gone any better,” Jo Dee said. “Those bands out there on the course motivated me for our show; they really help break up the miles when you’re out there running. Living and promoting a healthy lifestyle is important to me as a mother and to combine it with my passion for music was a dream come true.”

This year marked the 5th annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in San Antonio. Over the event’s 5-year history in San Antonio, runners have raised nearly $6 million for charity. The race had 25,000 entrants from all 50 states and 22 countries.
