Discount Code for Rock n Roll Savannah - WINESAV
Good Morning!! Yesterday, Gabe and I ran the Rock n Roll St. Pete Half Marathon. We had an amazing time. This marked my third half marathon in 3 months, 2nd of 2013. I have to start off by applauding the Rock n Roll Marathon Series. This was a very well organized and fun event. I always find myself let down at running events which aren't hosted by runDisney. Not the case here. From start to finish, everything was perfect. This race is a must race for any runner who loves FL.
My goal for this 13.1 was one I knew I would be able to do - finish under 3 hours. That may sound like a high number to you but my first half marathon was a horrible experience, the entire thing was on the beach (13.1 miles in sand...). I mentally gave up at mile 3 in that race. Then I started doubting myself. My second half marathon was at Disney and we stopped for 100 photos. Both of those races had over a 3 hour finish time time. I knew I could beat the 3 hours at Rock n Roll St. Pete but my real goal was to come in under 2:45.
We arrived at Tropicana Field at 7:05am, a little later than anticipated. It was much cooler in the morning and I know the weather man had to lie. It was not 62. The first gun went off at 7:30 which meant we had to head straight to our Corral. We started in Corral 8, luckily we did not experience too many walkers which was a relief.
Around mile 11, my foot was in an extreme form of pain which I have never experienced before. Nothing else hurt me, just my itty bitty toe. It was around this time that we found a medical tent and grabbed a package of Perform Pain Relief, by the makers of Bio Freeze. Gabe used a package per knee and I threw some on my thighs which helped. I wish we would have done this at mile 9.
Mile 12 came and went and Gabe pushed me, which I am very grateful he did. As I mentioned above, my main goal was to get under 3 hours, preferably under 2:45 and we were right on target.
