Rock 'n Roll Virginia Beach was one of our first local races together after we started our running adventure. Both of us have participated in the race twice, including last year when I ran the half marathon relay and Christine ran the half solo. This year, there is no relay so we will both be running the half together. If you have not done this race add it to your list, or better yet, sign up now so you can enjoy a great beach weekend and race. Always done on Labor Day weekend, this is the weekend that the locals "take back the beach" and the party atmosphere makes it a perfect time for a race.

A couple things to note about the race weekend. While it is a September race, don't let that fool you into thinking that race morning might be cool. This race is notoriously hot, so here are some tips to help you be prepared and enjoy your race.
This is the 15th anniversary of the race in Virginia Beach and the medals are outstanding. While we are not doing the Remix Challenge, those that are will get some seriously nice bling.
I do love the half marathon medal and look forward to earning that on September 6th! The race shirts this year are also very pretty and since blue is my favorite color I can't wait to get my hands on this one. Best of all, Rock 'n Roll has women's and men's cut shirts so they are a great fit.
Last of all Sheryl Crow is the headliner act for the concert Sunday night at the oceanfront. While we have missed these concerts the last few years, hopefully we can stay up late enough to enjoy this one.
