I'm currently training for Rock n Roll San Diego Half Marathon. This is the 20th anniversary of the San Diego Rock n Roll marathon, the original rock n roll race. It’s one you don’t want to miss!
I do have a bit of a history here. I ran the full marathon here in San Diego twice (in 2002 and 2003) and they rank as my top 2 best marathon finish times. Admittedly, I was MUCH younger!
This year, I will be taking on their half marathon. It’s going to be my first half marathon since knee surgery in October of 2016. I put on about 10 pounds with my knee injury and reduced activity. It’s been a real struggle to get the weight off, and I know dragging the extra pounds around are not helping my running (or arthritis). Because of this, I worry about being able to have a decent finish time (for me, under 2 hours). I am not looking to PR this race, but I would still like to have a finish time that I can be proud of.
I’m 1/3 of the way through my training, and it’s honestly going pretty well. Since I live in Arizona, RNR San Diego will be a close, convenient and beautiful place to run! Although the half does not go along the water, I think the views will still be a nice change.
Last week, new medals were just announced, the half and full medals spin!
If you need a spring full marathon or half, join me! Right now you can save $15 on either distance with BIBRAVE15!
Coming soon: My next Rock n Roll San Diego post will focus on the course and entertainment, as well as details on a BIBRAVE meet up!
