First, I have always loved this race series. I love the swag, the expos and the races themselves. Who doesn't love bands playing great music every couple of miles in a race? Seriously, though, let me tell you why this race series is so special to me.
I have been a blogger now with Gracious Warrior Princess for almost five year now. I know, right, five years-I can't even believe it's been that long! When I started running, I subscribed to Runner's World magazine. I kept seeing advertisements for Team Challenge CCFA.
My eldest son has Crohns' Disease. I thought about it and decided to go to a meeting to find out more information. I learned what was required to join the team (training, fundraising, etc) and thought that I could do this. Run my first half marathon in Las Vegas, Las Vegas RNR. Why not? I joined a wonderful team of people, had fabulous coaches and raised almost $8000. As a new runner, the expo was huge and I literally spent two days there getting new gear and swag. I also met Meb for the first time at the expo. I had the best time at the expo and touring the city. The race course is amazing at night and the music was spectacular! If you have never done Las Vegas RNR, let me tell you that this is an amazing race!! I completed my first half marathon-a Rock 'N' Roll race!
I have now completed my third RNR race in Washington, DC this weekend and can't wait to run more RNR races this year. (My race recap will be up shortly).
