This week’s Tuesday Tidbits covers more D.C. Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon fun! [Read more…]
I have officially completed my goal of running a half marathon!
The D.C. Rock ‘N’ Roll Half (and Full) Marathon was this past Saturday. Part of me couldn’t believe it was time for the race to be here already and the other part of me was getting a little tired from all of the training and was just anxious to run the race.There was the impending threat of rain on race day (70% chance of it raining all day), which would have been awful for all the runners who had spent some much time and energy training for the race. I personally would have cried in anger and frustration if it had rained and probably wouldn’t have finished the race. Alas, it didn’t rain! The weather turned out to be perfect, and we even saw some sunlight during the day. [Read more…]
I need to create a new running playlist of songs for Saturday. I am looking for upbeat, “get-in-the-mood-to-run” kind of songs. Please make suggestions! (I am trying to come up with a playlist of all NEW songs to me, i.e. songs not already in my iTunes library).The only genre of music I don’t really like is country. Poppy and rap song suggestions are most welcome (as I find it is those songs that really get me pumped up for a run). [Read more…]
1. The Rock ‘N’ Roll Half is right around the corner (this SATURDAY)! Pretty soon my precious 3-month training plan will have to come off the wall. [Read more…]
And I am so over it.
In the grand scheme of things, I know I shouldn’t be complaining about the weather here in D.C. considering there are other parts of the country that are getting pounded with snow and have freezing temperatures, but I am sooooooo ready for some spring-like weather. We are expected to have a winter storm come our way on Wednesday. Whether that actually happens or not remains to be seen, but it is definitely cold outside and definitely super windy. Even Violet, who loves her walks, cowers and closes her eyes when the wind blows. [Read more…]
So I finally did it – I signed up for my first ever half marathon. A few friends and I will be running the 2013 DC Rock ‘N’ Roll Half! Am I terrified? You bet.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good run. But 13.1 miles is just so many. I just hope I have the endurance to complete it, that is my one and only goal. Complete the race. I am also not a fast runner by any means. [Read more…]
