Miami Beach inaugural Rock n Roll half marathon
« on: December 12, 2011, 06:37:38 PM »
Writing up a quick report since this was such a great event.

Signed up for this since it's in my hometown of Miami. The race took place on South Beach and looped around to the mainland.

RnR did a great job with the check-in and expo. Everything went really smoothly. Got a nice race t-shirt but not much else schwag. Oh well. Did get a free bottle of some mango flavored coconut water, which was delish.

My dad came out to the race with me, which was awesome. Gun went off at 7 and I was in corral 5. While I'm usually pumped and excited to be at these events, I just wasn't feeling it. I don't know why, but I guess it was an "off" day. Anyway, the course was absolutely perfect (even with 2 bridges). Beautiful views. The weather was much more warm and humid than I anticipated. I went from running to running/walking to walking. Finished the day with a nice fat blister on my pinky toe. The race finished with a concert from Pitbull which was a blast.

I walked in with an absolutely awful 3:12 time (still about 20% finished behind me). I hear people say "if I can't run the whole thing I'll just walk," but I realized that walking that much distance really sucks. But, I got to spend a great day with my dad in a beautiful place, so hey, it's all good  :thumbsup:

Oh and here I am. With my dad's thumb.




And the start line, right in front of the Versace mansion. Nice to start a run where someone was murdered and such.
