Virginia Beach Rock N Roll Half Marathon

This past weekend was the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in VA Beach! :) On Friday, I left work a little early so I could head down to the Expo Center to get all my race goodies for the Sunday run.

While at the expo, I ended up getting a new pair of ear buds (I bought some SnuggBuds and I love them! :) I also ended up getting a SPIBELT as well...(the girls like to call it my "Mini Fanny Pack")
Sunday Morning I woke up super early, and made it over to where the race started (about an hour early) which is fine by me, better to be early than late, right?!  The race started, and it was definitely tough. The humidity was awful!
My finish time:
This half-marathon was my second one. I decided VERY last minute back in May that I was going to try and do the Marine Corps Historic Half. My finish time for that race was 2:44:12. I really wanted to try and beat my time....and I was sooo close. I was dissapointed that I wasn't able to. The humidity really took a toll.
This is me crossing the finish line....
My pretty medal...

The girls! :)

Another medal picture, isn't it pretty, lol...

oh, and after I finished the race, I got to see one of my best friends from college (ZTA Sister and bridesmaid in my wedding) Her and her parents were there at the finish line and I was sooo happy to see them! :) It had been over a year and a half (maybe even longer) since I had last seen them all!

All in all, it was a great weekend! :) I got to complete my first Rock N Roll Half Marathon! Yay! :)
