Windy, muggy conditions greeted runners and walkers as they made their way to the start line of the 2012 San Antonio rock-n-roll Marathon.
This year's event drew 25,000 runners that came from every state and 22 different countries.
Kenyan Stanley Biwott showed up in San Antonio undefeated in his last five races, including the Paris Marathon that he won in a time of 2:05.
He was slated to run in the New York Marathon until that event was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy. Biwott blazed through the half-marathon course despite the less than ideal running conditions, and crossed the line in first place in a time of 1:01:09.
He broke the previous course record of 1:02 that was set by American Brian Sell in 2008.
Dawn Grunnage won the women's half-marathon race with a time of 1:18:07.
