Back in August, I signed up for the Rock n' Roll USA Half Marathon in March. I was already registered to run the Baltimore Half Marathon in October but had never actually completed a half marathon when I signed up. I figured I would have plenty of time to get into half marathon shape.
After I ran my first half marathon in October the first thing my parents asked me once I was finished was whether I would ever do it again. My response was something along the lines of I am already registered for another one so I kinda have to. Honestly though, I was already thinking about running my second half marathon during my first one.
I knew I hadn't trained correctly so I wasn't going to be putting up any stellar times but I had so much fun running Baltimore that I knew running more half marathons was a must.
Earlier this week I received an email saying that registration for all Rock n' Roll races was $20 cheaper on 11.11.11, which happens to be today. I was already signed up to run in March so I felt a little disappointed that I didn't get to participate in all the race registering that has been going on today.
But when I was sitting in class this morning not paying any attention to the movie we were watching about immigration I decided I was going to find a race to register for. I haven't signed up for anything in awhile and I just love receiving those confirmation emails.
So I raced home after my morning classes to check out the tour stops, and found a race to register for. So as of about 12:30 today I am officially registered for the
Rock n' Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon in September
I wasn't sure about registering for this race now because it is pretty far away but I was ultimately enticed by the $20. I'm cheap, I know.
I am really excited for this race though because this will be the first race that I have to stay at a hotel for. I don't know about you, but I really freaking love staying at hotels.
So that it my big announcement for the day. If you are running this race of the half in March let me know so maybe we can meet up!
