Rock n Roll races on SALE today

ALL Rock n Roll races are on sale right now!  This is the chance to run a race in the destination of choice and there’s a distance for everyone.  I ran my first Rock n Roll race in 2013 and I really liked the vibe.  The races have changed over the years but I’m still running strong at these races.

There are races all over the world.  I’ve never run an international race but I’ve run my fair share of races in the United States.  I love being able to visit different cities.  The best way to see a city is to get out there on foot to get up close and personal.  Rock n Roll races are a little pricey so why not get more bang for your buck and register now for the lowest prices of the year.

I do recommend that if you are going to run more than one race, you should get a tour pass.  That means you can run a remix (two races in one weekend) and another event.  Or you can run three big races in a year. The 3-pack tour pass is on sale today for $199.  That’s three races for the price of 2 half marathons.  There are other tour pass options like 10-pack ($599) and unlimited ($899).

Go register for a race so we can run together.  Next year I’m hoping to head to New Orleans, San Diego, Denver, Las Vegas, and San Antonio.

Here are some of my favorite races that are still around!

Las Vegas is always a party.  Last year was my first year running and I had so much fun, I had to go back this year.  The strip is shut down and it’s free for your running.  It’s really cool to have an experience like that and it’s one of kind. Save all your money, stay on the strip and have a great time!

I’ve only run Rock n Roll Philadelphia once but it holds a place in my heart.  You are running through American history there and it’s a cool experience.  The race was very pretty back in the day.  My first time running was in 2013 and I hope to make it make it back soon.

Rock n Roll New Orleans has the same vibe as Las Vegas.  You get to run through the french quarter and down St. Charles Ave.  There’s beads and booze (not sanctioned by the race) and it’s just a good time.  This is a race to get your party pace on and have a good time.  Book your hotels early and buddy up with your friends because staying in New Orleans isn’t cheap.  You will have a good time running through the Crescent City.

Go register now for some races and get to running.

Rock n Roll San Antonio Marathon 2018

Rock n Roll San Antonio Marathon 2018

I’m wicked excited to be here writing about completing my marathon. This was a huge deal for me and something I knew I would put off until the “right” time so I just put one on the schedule. There is never a right time to do anything, and I’ve learned I just need to make some things work.  If I would have waited until the “right” moment,  the moment may not have ever come. I’m not going to bury the lead on the blog post. On December 2, 2018, I ran my 39th marathon at Rock n Roll San Antonio.…

Marathon Training Week 3: Mollie Tibbetts on my mind

Marathon Training Week 3: Mollie Tibbetts on my mind

I know you’ve been waiting on pins and needles waiting for my marathon training of week 3, right? The marathon training plan called for four runs this week: 3 miles, 4 miles, 3 miles, and 5 miles. It was kind of a drop back week because I added a mile to my mid-week run. It wasn’t actually meant to be a hard week of marathon training. I don’t know why this week was so hard for me. I struggled to get out of bed. I struggled with every single run this week, but I’m thankful I was able to finish…

I quit the Habenero Hundred 20k

I quit the Habenero Hundred 20k

Yesterday I posted about the Habenero Hundred 20k and how I quit the race.  Luckily, I was able to jump back in because I learned a lot from this experience.  All week, I talked about this race. Excitement was in the air.  I shed tears on Monday because when I went to sign up for the race the 20K was sold out and I had to “settle” for the 10k.  Ten minutes before the race started, I was able to upgrade my race to the 20K. Ironically, I quit the race at the 10K mark and I just walked away.…

Marathon Training Week 2: A HOT week

Marathon Training Week 2: A HOT week

Hey all!  I hope you’re having a Happy Sunday.  I’ve completed my second week of marathon training and I’m here to tell you about it. Now is your chance to read about week one of training. But first, I want to say, I’m not leaving the blog vacant on purpose.  I have blog posts on blog posts, I just haven’t finished them.  Today, I’m taking the time to work on the blog during nap time to get some of those posts finished. But now, you get to talk about my marathon training.  I am pleased to say I had a…

Start of marathon training

Start of marathon training

You may have missed the news, but I’ve decided to start marathon training.  My first marathon post-baby will be Rock n Roll San Antonio. I’ve run this marathon before and it’s not one of the easiest courses, but the time limit, 7 hours, is the thing that is most important to me.  My PR on the marathon is 4:49:34 and I know I won’t be hitting that time this time around.  I wanted to pick a race that had a “generous” time limit. It’s been a week in my house.  I thought I had everything together and was ready to start…

Finished #StreakingwiththeCoolKids

Finished #StreakingwiththeCoolKids

On the first day of June, I set out to run or walk a mile every day for the month with the #StreakingWithTheCoolKids challenge. My motivation to run has been completely gone because I’ve been having some trouble with running since having the baby. I’m slower and it’s frustrating. I guess the only reason it’s so upsetting is that I know what I’m capable of doing. I thought I would come back stronger and faster than I did before, but I was wrong. There’s been some pain with the running too but I’ve seemed to have worked through those issues…

#StreakingwiththeCoolKids

Confession:  I’ve run more in the past nine days than I have in past two months.  I’ve had the baby and things haven’t seemed to be working right since then.  It’s been a struggle for me and I know it’s the culmination of a lot of different things, but I know my running form definitely has something to do with it. Before I always said I didn’t have time to run so it went on the back burner. There’s some truth in that so that’s why I wanted to do this #streakingwiththeCoolKids thing. Basically, I have to run or walk…

A non running week

A non running week

I have declared this a non-running week and it sucks.  I’m already having a really awesome week so this just tops it off. I have a perfectly valid reason for not running this week, but it doesn’t make it any better.  My hip flexor is pretty torn up and I need it to heal.  I haven’t really run without pain since having the baby but it’s something that is manageable.  I thought I was hitting my running stride in December and then this happened. A couple of weeks ago I ran the Louisiana half marathon and the quarter marathon the day…

Race Recap: Rock n Roll San Antonio Half …

Race Recap:  Rock n Roll San Antonio Half Marathon

I just wanted to start the blog off by telling you I am a Rock n Roll and Team Chocolate Milk ambassador.  My race entries were paid for by these groups but the opinions expressed on my blog are completely my own.  Dont’ forget to check out my Rock n Roll San Antonio 5k recap first. I didn’t have a chance to run Rock n Roll San Antonio last year because I was very pregnant so running this year wasn’t up for discussion.  It’s something I had to do.  There have been a lot of changes to the race since…

Race recap: Rock n Roll San Antonio 5k

Race recap: Rock n Roll San Antonio 5k

It’s so sad the weekend has come and gone because the last Rock n Roll Marathon series race is over.  It’s kind of hard for me to handle right now.  I’ve had a wonderful year representing Rock n Roll and Team Chocolate Milk.  I had a slow start to the year, but I’m glad about the way it finished. This weekend I traveled to San Antonio to run the last race of the series.  I had high hopes of being able to run the marathon in this race, but things didn’t work out the way I planned.  I don’t plan…
