Initial thoughts on Rock 'n' Roll VA Beach Weekend

This weekend definitely ranks up there as one of my favorite race weekends.  It was wonderful to share it with my Mom and a dear friend.  While the weather didn't make it a fast racing day, there was so much more to this weekend that made it special.  In the coming days, we'll have more to share on each of our race experiences - relay vs. half marathon - but until then, I wanted to share some of my favorite moments from the weekend.

We goofed off at the expo…
It always feels real once you get a race bib! 
Took some fun (in theory) photos that made us look a little green!
 We ooh'ed and aah'ed over the race merchandise…
Making sure the shirts fit!

Met new runner friends and caught up with old friends…
Seeing Megan off on the bus to the relay exchange point

Pre-race with Abby from Back at Square Zero

Post-race celebrating Kathryn's (from Dancing to Running) new PR!
And we celebrated another half marathon completion with a fabulous dinner at One Fish, Two Fish in Virginia Beach…

This is one of those weekends that proves that it's not where you go but who you are with that can make a race weekend truly special!  Did you race over the holiday weekend?
