Virginia Beach Rock “N” Roll Half Marathon- September 2nd, 2007

Virginia Beach Marathon (2)

Virginia Beach Rock “N” Roll Half Marathon- September 2nd, 2007

This was the 4th marathon in the Rock “N” Roll Marathon Series that we completed!  This is the first ½ marathon that counted towards the Series “Rock Star”.  We were actually looking forward to just doing a half after all the marathons we were doing that year.  Sometimes that break is just a great relief from the pounding we have done to our bodies! This is a great fast marathon as it is flat as can be. It runs across Virginia’s beachfront boardwalk.  As with all the other Rock “N” Roll marathons, bands play throughout the race.


  • Spending time on Virginia Beach
  • Nice flat race
  • It was hot
  • Finishing number 4 in our Rock “N” Roll series

California- San Diego Rock “N” Roll Marathon- June 3rd, 2007


California- San Diego Rock-n-Roll Marathon- June 3rd, 2007

This was the third marathon in the Rock “N” Roll series Marathon.   This was also the 10th anniversary for the San Diego Marathon with over 20,000 participants. The race ran through San Diego, from Balboa Park to downtown, out and around Mission Bay and then back to the Marine Corps Depot. Along the course were about 26 bands, cheerleading squads, US Marines, and thousands and thousands of spectators.

This was the first race we ran since we had been working with a physical trainer (Brian Caulkins).  We were the most fit we had ever been to date which definitely helped during the race!  It was a beautiful day and a great race! Enjoyed the music along the way and all of the crowds!
