Rock N Roll Half Marathon

I am totally behind in posting any kind of update on the half marathon last weekend, but life has just been extremely busy (and not entirely in the best of ways unfortunately). Between being sick with bronchitis for the past 2 weeks, and work.....it's left me in a bit of a running funk. Instead of whining, I tend to *hole up* for a while. Thus, the lack of posting ;)

I did go out and complete the Rock N Roll Half Marathon, and loved every minute of it. I honestly didn't mind if I went out and walked the entire thing ~ the goal was just to go and do it. I was still pretty sick, but it all went well.

I basically jogged the first 10K, walked the next 4 miles straight, and jogged in the last 5K. It's funny how much you can enjoy a race when there is no mental pressure to perform well :) I finished without leaving a lung on the sidewalk, in just over 3 hours.....so it ended up being a very good day.

I'm still struggling with some endurance issues, and even a 5 mile run with the "3-C's" (Christina, Caroline and Candace) this morning proved to be a challenge. My schedule has me heading for Huntington Beach this weekend to run with the amazing Viv ~ so we gotta chat today and come up with a plan. Perhaps a down scale to the 5K might be more in order for me......we'll just have to see.

I don't have much of a race report, so I'll let it ride with some great pictures of some great running peeps at the RNR Half......it was a great time!

Huge congrats to both Pat and Lisa who seriously PR'd this race, and to Candace who ran her very first half marathon in a faster time than I even allow myself to imagine :) Great times!!

Bronchitis totally sucks! Hope you are back to 100% soon. Oh - and have fun with Viv!

Melanie said...

Great pics! Feel better soon!! Awesome job getting out there and doing the HM! :D

Laura said...

Congrats on the finish and get well soon!

Lisa Slow-n-Steady said...

Hope you get well soon. I like the photos. Everyone looks happy!! It's great you could just get out and have fun with it. It is all about fun.

Pat said...

Damn, I'm one lucky guy.

Stephen Andert said...

Glad to hear you had fun. I have enjoyed the three HM's there I have done. I think it is a fun race, but if you are ever doing this for a PR, make sure you start as far up as you can to avoid the traffic in the early miles.

Hope you get better and back to running.

Jeff said...

You got out there and had fun. Enough said. Great attitude.

Seems like these mega races are tough to PR with all of the traffic. You did much better in December, so you know you can do it. What made that one so different?

Nat said...

Funny, my favourite half was The Distance Run in Philly. I ended up walking a lot of that one too. :)

Congrats on sticking it out... hope you heal up from the bronchitis soon.

Steve Stenzel said...

Sounds like a fun run! I hope you're feeling better!!

teacherwoman said...

Ouch. I hope you feel better fast!

Ted said...

Hope you feel better. I am glad to hear that your lungs was not on the sidewalk after you did the half marathon. Congrats for getting the job done.

bill carter said...

Congratulations! There is truly something to be said for that no pressure way of approaching a race.

Great pics and again congrats.

Database Diva said...

My last few races have been the "finish if I have to walk it" kind, and when I walked, I walked slowly. I think I enjoy the actual race experience more when I'm just going slow and mingling with the other runners. But, when it's over, I have that "wish I'd run fast" feeling. When I go out and run my best, I don't necessarily enjoy it as much during the event, but I feel really good about it after. I'm pretty sure that is vanity on my part.

Hope you are feeling better soon!

RunningNan said...

Awesome. I'm so hoping to still do my half marathon in the spring. If I can't, I'll just read about yours!

John said...

Dear Friend,

If your goal is to lose fat as fast as humanly possible, it should be no surprise that you absolutely MUST learn to maximize the amount of time your body is actually burning fat. After all, if your body is actively burning fat for 10 hours each day, you'd get much faster results than if it were only burning fat for five.

But what if you could literally burn fat twenty four hours a day…every day?

Do you realize how much faster you'd progress? How much more quickly the fat would melt away? How much more rapidly you'd have the body you want?
