I received an entry into the Rock N Roll San Diego Half Marathon as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews! All opinions are my own.
That’s right. Come Sunday, June 2nd, I’ll be running the Rock N Roll San Diego half marathon again for the 4th time.
And once again, I chickened out and didn’t opt in for the full. LOL.
One of these days, I’ll get around to running the full. I heard it’s a fun course and being a San Diego native, I feel like it would be a great way to explore 26.2 miles of my city on foot. See things I’ve never noticed before and interact with the community that would wake up early to cheer us on.
Unfortunately, that course is not the easiest. It has a pesky little hill around mile 20 and I tend to hit the wall at mile 20 so no thank you…at least for now. One day though, I will run it and I’m sure I’ll love it. I mean, San Diego is the birthplace for the Rock N Roll series so I just know the full will be twice the fun of the half. 🙂
We’re 6 weeks out, but I know that I will be only running this race for fun. Running for time is out of the question as I’m still very injured. It’s been a struggle to run even 4 miles without stopping so I know I will need to work hard to recover.
Running the course should be a grand ole time though. I’m excited to high five as many people as I can and maybe I can even find a few Power Up signs to hit along the way. I will rock out to the music and hopefully, I can get some great photos of the course.
I’m pretty happy that my next race is this one. I know I’ve said it time and time again, but the Rock N Roll series just now how to put on a party. Even their Health and Fitness expo is pretty top notch. During my first visit to the expo, I walked around for hours. I visited all of the booths, got free samples, and even rode a mechanical shoe (think bull) that threw me off. LOL. Me being thrown off the shoe was one of my favorite expo memories. 🙂
San Diego is also just a phenomenal city to run through and this race is one of my favorites. The neighborhoods bring their A game every year. Outside of the cheer squads and bands that play along the course, some of the neighbors bring out shots of tequila and whiskey. LOL. I don’t know if I’ll partake in them, but it’s nice to know I have options. 🙂
If you’re running it, let me know and let’s meet up. I love meeting new people, especially if they’re runners.
And if you’re not running it and want to, use code “19RNRBRP16” for $16 off either the half or full or code “19RNRBRP6” for $6 off their 5k or 10k. 🙂
See you there!
