Jo Dee Messina Performs After Running Marathon

Jo Dee Messina Takes The Stage After Competing In The Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon.

Jo Dee Messina had a very busy day yesterday, Sunday, November 11. Not only did she run 13.1 miles, she then performed for 25,000 runners to celebrate the finish of the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon & ½ Marathon.

Messina completed the half-marathon in 2:36:50 and took the stage one hour later to headline the event’s finish line concert outside the Alamodome. To the surprise of thousands of runners in the audience, Messina performed wearing her half-marathon finishers medal, CEP compression socks and bright blue running shoes.

At the same event on Veterans Day, a solider, Sgt. Jonathan Gillis, having just returned from serving in Iraq for 10 months surprised his wife, Giselle, at the finish line of the race. She had no idea he would be there and broke into tears as she crossed the finish line.
