After more than 14,000 runners racked up 13.1 miles on Sunday morning as part of the Rock 'n' Roll Dallas Half Marathon at Fair Park, they were met with a Bret Michaels performance. Michaels followed Candy Coburn (that's who he's hugging after the jump) in serenading the runners' tired limbs as they crossed the finish line, going on around 11:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
Our photographer Mike Mezeul was down at chilly Fair Park for the concert, which you can check out in its full glory in the slide show.
