Rock n Roll Nashville Here We Come! #RNRNASHVILLE

I am SO excited to announce we have officially registered for the Rock n Roll Nashville Half Marathon taking place on April 30th! This will be our first visit to Music City and I have many friends who have ran this event and raved about it. When I partnered up with the Rock n Roll Marathon Series all the way back in 2012, Nashville was at the top of my race bucket list.
One of my favorite things to do is plan races around vacations - also known as Racecations. It's the perfect way to reward yourself for all the hard training. To date, we have planned vacations around races in New Orleans, DC, NYC and Dublin!

I am going to age myself for a second - I graduated high school in 1997. The Wallflowers were huge during my Junior and Senior year of High School (and I'm totally rockin out to them while writing this post). I squealed when I heard they would be performing a nighttime concert free of charge for Rock n Roll participants at Bridgestone Arena following the race. Family and friends of runners can buy a ticket for $35. You also have the option to purchase a pit pass wristband to upgrade to front-of-stage access for just $10 (click here).

On Course Entertainment
This is music city after all. Runners will enjoy music on every mile - a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul along the race course. Music and entertainment set the tempo for this running party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts.
Did Someone Say Spinning Medals?
Dizzy yet? While I was secretly hoping for a cowboy boot medal, I think this is a fun design and it will be my first medal that spins. Check out the medals below for the full lineup - both the Half and Full Marathon medals spin.
