Race Preview: 2013 Seattle RocknRoll Half Marathon

I’m really excited to be running The 2013 Seattle RocknRoll Half Marathon this Saturday. This course is special because a year ago it was my very first marathon. After only a year and a half of running, with 2 marathons and 2 half marathons under my belt,  I’m really happy to be back running the half here in Seattle.

I’m not trying to PR, just enjoy a really fun race on a beautiful course. The RocknRoll is a unique race series because it has a live band/DJ every 2 miles of the race. Mostly local bands, but always a great variety of acts that bring high energy. Nothing like live music to keep you motivated and happy while your body slowly shuts down on you.

Here’s a quick race preview. I’ll post my stats and a recap post next week.

200+ foot climb at mile 9. Ouch.

Beautiful race course taking us along Lake Washington and along the Viaduct with sweeping views of the city and the bay.

    “While you’re body slowly shuts down on you…” love it! I feel even more excited already! I remember following you around on your route last year, excited to do it together this time around :)
