November: Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon

The Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon was different from any other we have done or will do this year. The run was on Saturday, not Sunday. We had to drive down on Friday and be prepared to run on Saturday. We decided to stay at the Andaz. The hotel was conveniently located. We were […]

October: Los Angeles Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon

It was a quick trip to L.A. We landed, checked into the hotel and headed straight to packet pickup. Unfortunately, there was no time for sightseeing, but I did manage to capture photos of the Lakers statues outside the Staples Center.   We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott near the start/finish lines, and this trip […]

October: San Jose Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon

It’s time to hit 10 and Steve’s original Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon goal. He wanted that gold record when he first saw it, and we started figuring out how to get it for him. Now it’s time to do just that. Getting to San Jose was a small challenge as Southwest rerouted us but […]

September: Philadelphia Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon

Steve and I arrived in Philadelphia Saturday morning. To get from the airport to downtown, we used the regional rail, SEPTA. The Suburban Station downtown dropped us off a few walkable blocks to our hotel. We checked into the Embassy Suites City Center, which turned out to be a great locale and headed to packet […]

Mile on the Sand

Virginia Beach: 5K and Mile on the Sand, Day One

Day One in Virginia Beach started early. Steve and I got a little crazy and decided to enter the 5K and the One Mile on the Sand. We’d get a medal for each run plus a pin for running “Land to Sand.” Why not do it? It was included in our Tourpass, and we were […]

Grant park, buckingham fountain, Rock 'n' Roll 5K,

Chicago 2017: 5K-The Remix

Summertime in Chicago–so much different than summertime in Nashville. Less humidity and lower temperatures make it a fantastic time to enjoy the outdoors. When we arrived we took the El into the city. Then hoofed it to the Doubletree Hotel in Streeterville. We selected this hotel for its location and its rooftop pool! Getting to […]

June: Seattle Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon

This race was the earliest wake-up time yet. The alarm went off at 4:30 a.m. since the race started at 6:30 a.m., and we had to take the light rail to the start line. (The race is a one-way race.) We got to the light rail station by 5:25, in time to hit the second […]

Seattle Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon: Day One

Steve and I landed in Seattle today. We flew Delta out here, a change from our usual Southwest flight. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It was a new plane with free individual entertainment with touchscreen consoles on the back of each seat. I was able to watch movies Steve has no interest […]
