I don’t know if you saw it but on Wednesday, December 16, Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series had a one day only special pricing (and limited space) for all of their races. I saw it on Facebook on my way to school and once there I quickly signed up for two races in Seattle and Las Vegas. I am already planning to run in New Orleans in February and have already run in both Seattle and Las Vegas. My nephew lives in Seattle so I would like to visit and run the race again hoping for a better experience. As for Las Vegas, well, why not? Plus, I had a great time the last time I was there.
I know, I know. I told myself I wouldn’t run another RnR race because I did so many in 2013. I haven’t even run the once in Chicago since then and I live here. Plus, it is always so hot here at that time but that is another issue. So now I have three next year!
Unlike most people, I do enjoy running on the treadmill. I like it when the weather just doesn’t make it possible for me to run outside or when my runs call for a specific pace. Lately we’ve been having great weather in Chicago so most of my runs have been outside.
I’ve been setting the incline at 1% for all of my runs. I came across this article “The Truth About Setting Your Treadmill Incline” and Matt says “So instead leave it at 0 percent unless you’re looking for the specific challenge of running uphill.” So now I am torn between leaving it at 1% or changing it to 0% like Matt says.
And totally random and to make you laugh. I have yet to put up my tree. No shame here.
Fan of RnR races? Which is your favorite?
