This was my second time running the DC Rock N Roll Half Marathon. I doubt it’ll ever be a warm race because it’s in the beginning of March, but DC weather is pretty hit or miss. This year’s weather was perfect. I ran at about a 11min/mile pace, and at that pace, there were plenty of water stops, great volunteers, and wonderful community involvement. I got lost in my thoughts and the fun music from miles 3-6. The course flattens out a lot and it’s easy to just sort of coast. At mile 6, there is quite possibly the biggest on ramp you’ve ever seen in your life. At one point I was running, yet I wasn’t... lol! Challenging, yet doable. The rest of the course is pretty hilly, but again, doable. Just enjoy running down Capitol Street, soak in all your competitors, and have a good time!

Top Tips: 
The people who work the expo (staff for the venue) don’t know anything about the expo. Make sure to ask someone who looked like they were for RnR if you have a question.
