Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon
Tribulation: I ran the Rock n’ Roll USA half marathon on St. Patrick’s Day this year. I have actually ran this race three years in a row now, but this was my worst time ever for a half. What is weird is that I trained for this half marathon in Colorado while studying for the bar exam. Not only should the altitude have made this run easy, the fact that I actually trained for a half should have made a difference. I should have ran my best time yet. When I could feel I was going to bomb this half, I decided to take it easy and enjoy the run. There was a band almost every two miles. So many people came out to watch and join in the festivities. It was a great time. I will definitely be running this again next year. It is my goal to beat not only this horrible time, but my personal best for a half.
