I had the opportunity to run the Rock N' Roll Seattle 1/2 Marathon today:)
I had never run in one of the Rock N' Roll series so I was a little nervous about the sheer SIZE of these races. I dont' really like feeling crowded while I run and I just couldn't see how 27,000 people all running the same route would fit.
Sure it sounds like we're being herded like cattle...maybe we are a little, but it's totally worth it! When my corral got it's start it really didn't feel any more crowded than Santa Runs Tacoma 5k last year.
Amy took off like a shot! But then, I knew she would:) I also knew I would NOT be trying to keep up with her. That girl is fast!
I had been worried about being too cold for this race since I only packed a tank top to run in, so I ended up wearing the event t-shirt (I know...) with the tank layered underneath.
The medals are pretty awesome. Amy was totally right when she said they were "satisfyingly heavy, but a little TOO heavy right after running."
