This weekend marks the symbolic end of summer and the beginning of fall. What’s perfect is that I’m not only headed to Virginia Beach today, but that the two races that I’ll complete there this weekend will jump start an exciting fall lineup of races for me.
So what races do I have lined up for this fall?
1. September 5th – Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Mile on the Sand
Saturday morning I’ll be walking the Mile on the Sand. After taking a couple of walks on the beach while we were down in St. Pete Beach in Florida, I’m really looking forward to kicking off race weekend with this race.
2. September 6th – Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon
Sunday morning I’ll be running my fifth half marathon. To say that I’m excited is an understatement. I cannot wait to complete my first pregnant half marathon, and to earn my Rock ‘n’ Roll Remix medal for completing both the Mile on the Sand and the half marathon this weekend.
3. September 19th – Dulles Day 5k on the Runway
This will be my third year running this race. In 2013 I ran the 5k, and last year I ran the 10k. I contemplated running the 10k again this year, but for a number of reasons, decided that it would be smarter to sign up for the 5k instead. I’m more than okay with this decision, and I cannot wait to once again run on the runway at Dulles Airport.
4. September 26th – Clarendon Day 10k
One of the reasons why I chose to sign up for the Dulles Day 5k instead of the 10k is because of Clarendon Day being the following weekend. Although I ran both 10ks last year, I also was not pregnant last year. A number of fellow DC area bloggers usually also run Clarendon Day, so I’m looking forward to seeing a number of familiar faces on race day.
5. October 31st – Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon
My sixth half marathon will likely be mostly, if not entirely, walked. Regardless, I cannot wait to experience a race in a city that I haven’t run in before. Want to join me for #RnRPhilly? You can still sign up using my Rock ‘n’ Blogger discount code. You can also use this code for any other remaining U.S. or Canadian Rock ‘n’ Roll half or full marathon in 2015, with the exception of Virginia Beach since online registration is closed, as well as Las Vegas.
However, if you’re interested in running Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas, the great news is that as of yesterday I received a different discount code, DANCINGTORUNNINGLV, which will save you $15 on the half or full marathon. This race is on my bucket list, and one day I hope to make it there to run on the strip at night.
