Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon

This is my second year running the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon. To read about last year’s experience, click here 🙂 I went to the race expo on Thursday to pick up my bib.  My next step was to figure out what to wear since the weather was calling for 100% rain and temps in the 40s. I don’t have a running rain jacket (now on my wish list), so I decided to go with layers. I ended up throwing on a long sleeved…

11.5th Annual Potomac River Run Half Marathon

Just a week after my Disney World races as part of the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, I decided it would be smart to run another half marathon in Maryland near Carderock. I had previously run this same course/race in during this past spring and really enjoyed myself, so I figured I would do it again. I had an 8am start and it was COLD! It was in the 30s when we started and it was hard to keep warm, especially while just standing around waiting…

Disneyland Half Marathon

Disneyland Half Marathon See my recap of the Disneyland 10k here! I was a bit nervous heading out for this half marathon because of spraining my ankle the day before at the Disneyland 10k. My foot was super swollen the night before and a pretty sore. Regardless, I wrapped it up pretty good with some KT tape, and hoped for the best. I got to the corrals and met up with some of my family. Marty, Nathan, and I all dressed up as Olaf. And…

Run for the Wounded Warrior Half Marathon

On Sunday was Nathan’s first Half Marathon and my 7th! It took place at Prince William Forest Park and was super hilly. The first and last 3 miles were all hills, and miles 8-10 got pretty hilly as well.It was a nice tree lined course, one that I had run last year for my first half. It was just as hilly then as it is now. LOL. It was a pretty small race, so there wasn’t any crowd support except for the water stations. But…
