Road Trip – Rock ‘n’ Roll Philly!

Ahhh – I really do love road trips, new places and race weekends. This weekend Tamara and I will have all three.  We are heading to Philly (via train) for the Rock n Roll Philly 1/2 Marathon.  The race is on Sunday so we will have a few days before to explore the town and we will probably squeeze a short run in later today.  Tamara and I get a bit “Twitter Happy” around our races so maybe we will meet up with some of our Twitter friends for the run.  I won’t lie, I’m not feeling 100%.  I’m still dealing with some shin pain and really haven’t had what I would consider a “good run” for a few weeks but I’m also not going to let any of that bother me.  Philly is flat and fast and I always run better at the races so I’m excited for a potential PR but I will run smart and see how things go.

This will be our second Rock n Roll event this year (another Heavy Medal for us!).  Tamara and I have been trying to run 2 a year until we hit them all.  I like small races but I love all of the people and energy around these events, we love the expos too!……and it is always nice to bring home a new medal!

We will be tweeting @werrunners and blogging during the weekend so stay tuned for our Philly adventure!  Happy Running!

A room for a few more Medals!
