    My 4 Favorite Rock ‘n’ Roll Races

    I am fond of the Rock ‘n’ Roll races because Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas was my first “big” race. I had never seen anything like it.  I didn’t even know that races had expos. I’ve run a lot of the Rock ‘n’ Roll races, which means I have a few favorites. There are many great things about Rock ‘n’ Roll Races like the bands, music, awesome medals, and just meeting new people. I’ve made some great running friends waiting on a race to start in my corral. Now it’s time for me to share my favorite Rock ‘n’ Roll Races.

    Why I ll Be Raising a Pint This Summer at Rock n Roll Dublin

    My wife and I decided 2018 was going to be the year we took a race-cation, as we have been talking about it for some time. Dublin, Ireland has always been at the top of our travel wish list–really, a bucket list item for me. We’ve never been to Ireland–or to Europe, for that matter–and when we saw that the Affidea Rock ‘n’ Roll Dublin was happening this August, we knew this was it. The event would be a magnificent chance to visit, explore, and run where our family’s roots run deep.

Earlier this month, those colors, that energy, and of course those beads were in their full, enchanting display on race weekend.

    Runching 101

    It happens to the best of us. Your training plan says you need to run X miles for the day, but you have COMMITMENTS: an early morning meeting at work and dinner plans with friends in the evening. Your only option is to set your alarm for the cringeworthy hour of 4am — or is it? I’m telling y’all — runching is the solution!

    Run D.C. – Where To Go For A Beautiful Run!

    Fall is my favorite time of year to run in the D.C. metro area. The temps have dropped, the sun is usually shining, and the leaves are beautiful. While I often run in my own neighborhood, this is the time of year when I try to get out of my usual haunts and onto some of the prettier running paths in the area. So whether you are a resident of the DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) area, or on vacation doing touristy things, make sure you take advantage of the five running hot spots.

    Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans: A Homecoming on a 50 State Journey

    This weekend, I am coming home. There are many reasons why I am running Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans for my first Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series event of 2018 as a part of the 2018 Rock ‘n’ Blog team. For one, New Orleans has a special place in my heart–it’s where I grew up, and I am eager to run the streets that I used to walk as a kid. New Orleans is also celebrating its 300th year this weekend, and I am excited to join all the tricentennial festivities. I’ll get the chance to see the wonderful culture of the city in full force for this special occasion.

    The 2018 Rock ‘n’ Roll Experience | Justin’s Arizona Weekend

    “Perhaps we’d better start from the beginning…” a line taken from one of my favorite rockers… Rob Zombie. Arizona marks the first stop on the Tour each year, and since this is my running anniversary, I love that the fun starts here. In 2016, I did my very first run, and it just so happened that it was the 10K here. Much has changed since then, for me, and for the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon Series.

    The 2018 Rock ‘n’ Roll Experience | Jessie’s Arizona Weekend

    This past Sunday I ran the Synchrony Financial Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Half Marathon for the first time! This was my 5th half marathon with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series.  I chose to run Arizona because it was close enough to drive there from home and I know Rock ‘n’ Roll always puts on a great event!  The Rock ‘n’ Roll races are always really well organized, have a fun crowd of participants, spectators, and volunteers!  And this year they even got a little makeover with new mile markers that we could see and hear from a distance, and aid station signage!
