Race Recap: Rock n Roll Liverpool 2017 Remix Challenge

  After much anticipation, we touched down in Manchester for a quick afternoon, wandered the city for a bit, and then boarded a train to Liverpool the next morning. Despite the tragedy that struck just a day or so earlier, we found a lot of love and beauty in the city: The next morning, we boarded … Continue reading Race Recap: Rock n Roll Liverpool 2017 Remix Challenge

Race Recap: Rock n Roll Nashville 2017

It's been a month since my last race. I've been really enjoying the downtime at home on weekends. However, I've spent some time really thinking about my running goals before hitting the road. Before I knew it, we were headed to Nashville.   As always, I was following the weather pretty closely leading up to … Continue reading Race Recap: Rock n Roll Nashville 2017

Race Recap: Rock n Roll San Francisco Half Marathon 2017

Stop #3: Sam Clams Disco! I can't believe I hadn't done this race sooner. What took me so long to do a race in northern California? I've gone up the coast for plenty of work trips, but very rarely for fun trips. Such a travesty...I've seen so much under the guise of work, but this was … Continue reading Race Recap: Rock n Roll San Francisco Half Marathon 2017

Race Recap: 2017 Rock n Roll DC Half Marathon

By the time we got home, we didn't bother unpacking at all - in fact, while packing up in Orlando, we decided to pack for Phoenix since we were doing laundry anyways. What has become of my life? I've … Continue reading Race Recap: 2017 Rock n Roll Arizona Half Marathon

Race Recap: 2013 Rock ‘n Roll Seattle Half Marathon

Ahhhhh. There's nothing feeling like you've finally arrived in a new city than running a road race there. Make that three. I've completed the Athleta Iron Girl 10K last year, along with the Sporty Divas half marathon in Tacoma, but the Rock n Roll races always hold a fond place in my heart. This race … Continue reading Race Recap: 2013 Rock ‘n Roll Seattle Half Marathon

Race Recap: 2013 Rock n Roll Portland Half Marathon

So I've had Rock n Roll Portland on my list for quite awhile now. I was really happy to knock this one off my list! This particular half marathon was very important to me since it was my first official long run since I sprained my ankle a few months ago. Thankfully, it held up … Continue reading Race Recap: 2013 Rock n Roll Portland Half Marathon
