One Racer's Story About Making the Jazz Half Her First Half Marathon
With its flat course and beautiful scenery, the Jazz Half Marathon appeals to many runners. Amanda Evans Gros, 45, of Houma was one such racer who made the 2014 Jazz Half her first half marathon.
While her running time of 3 hours, 5 minutes and 53 seconds was not the fastest, she takes great pride in the achievement. Her medal, bib, completion certificate and the photo capturing her crossing the finish line hangs prominently in her office at Perque’s Flooring, where she works as a scheduler and social media manager.
