  1. I'd like to Rock the Virginia Beach 1/2 this summer with the We Run Disney Gals because my best friend from high school lives in the area and is also a runner. It would turn into a giant slumber/beach/running party with great music!

  7. I'd love to rock this race with you fabulous ladies because my brother-in-law and sister-in-law live near Virginia Beach and it would be a great reason to visit them! We haven't seen them in a long time since they live so far away!

  8. I started running/weight loss journey 28 months ago. I have lost 70 pounds. I just completed my first half marathon on April 26 in Ocean City MD. My time was 3:05:31. I live in PA so the training was horrilbe in the snow/ice/temps but I did it! I started following your blogs last year (along with some others) and following you on the Dopey challenge was awesome! To complete 48.5 miles in 4 days is CRAZY AWESOME! I have had freinds who has done the Philly Rock n Roll and I thought I can never do those races. But now after doing OC in April, I know I can complete a Rock n Roll race. I have thought about Philly for September but I think finanaces will keep me away from that race. So for me to Win an Entry to Rock n Roll VA would mean I could complete my first Rock n Roll race. I have 2 small daughters who could not see race in MD because of finances so if I could get a free race entry, I could possibly bring them with me for this race. It would be a LONG travel day but so worth it for my family to see me cross the finish line!!! THANKS LADIES!!

  9. I mean, who WOULDN'T want to run with you ladies?!?! And what better place to do it than ocean front in VA! Plus I have no long races planned until October and this would be a wonderful step since I'm training for my first full marathon in December!

  11. As you know, I'm already signed up to run this race (yay!), but my husband is still wavering. I bet I could easily sway his decision with a free race entry. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'd love to run this because I've heard fantastic things about this particular run from a running friend of mine. Running with you guys would be an obvious great thing, though I may not keep up, so I would settle for meeting you, as I love the blog.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've actually never run a Rock n' Roll race before, but I've always heard such good things!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'd like to run Rock n Roll Virginia Beach as I've never run an RnR before and the one in Raleigh where I live sold out before I could register. Virginia Beach would also fit in well in my training schedule to run my second marathon, Spacecoast Marathon in December.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would *love* to run R&R VA Beach to get the opportunity to race at the beach! I love racecations, and adding the beach element just makes it that much better :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. Running along the beach would be AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I need a race to get me motivated, something to train for. In the next couple of weeks I am going to give birth to my first child, and I'm anxious to start running again. I've missed it greatly these past few months. Having a great race to train for will be that extra kick in the booty to get me out and pounding the pavement.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have actually been debating on this race (although I would really love to run it cause it is one of my favorites). So if I won the race entry and got to run with you ladies that would definitely make my decision to go much easier!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I've been trying to be more adventurous in my racing. Already ran 3 new to me races this year, would love to try another one.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I want to run Rock N Roll with YOU! Plus, it would add another state to the list!

    ReplyDelete
  55. They discontinued the RnR closest to me (RI) so I'd love the opportunity to still run one this year! Plus, this would help keep me on track for hitting my goal at the Disney World Marathon this coming January: finally getting my BQ (I hope I hope I hope!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I wanted to do this race last year but couldn't get it to work out! My hubby has family in VB! I'd love to run this one!

    ReplyDelete
  57. This is supposed to be a great course and who doesn't love running by the beach!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Virginia Beach ROCKS! I would make the six hour drive - I do every year anyways....and this race will be beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Because Virginia Beach is beautiful!!!! I would drive the six hours to get there - it would be an awesome race to put on the accomplished list!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I would love to do Rock n Roll Virginia Beach because my parents live near by and I have never done a Rock n Roll series race.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Love the Rock n Roll race series and I love Virginia Beach!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Disappointed the Rich n Roll Brooklyn 10k was canceled this year, had planned on finally giving this series a try with that race. I'd love to make up for the loss by going to VA instead!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Woohoo.
    Must figure out how to get there.
    It'll be awesome.
    I am way slower than both of you, and this will be my first half after a long time off distance and healing, so maybe a pre or post race meetup instead of forcing you all to run with me.
