Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series Winter Virtual Run


One of the biggest honors of my year was being chosen for the 2016 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series ambassador team. I clearly remember filling out my application around this time last year and vowing to make 2016 a better year for running and racing and being on the Rocknblog team.

I lived up to my promise. And it has changed my life for the better.

This has been the best year of running since my 2nd and fastest year. I maintained a consistent training plan, especially the second half of the year. I traveled to more races than the previous 2 years. I have medals for running 3 races in the South (Southern Charm), 2 races in one year (Double Beat), and the Triple medal for 3 races in a calendar year is on the way to me. I think it’s safe to say that the half-marathon distance is my absolute favorite distance! I also participated in a Virtual run series which is a LOT of fun. I run the distance, post the pictures, and earn some awesome medals.

And now there is a winter Virtual Race series. It’s called Winter Runningland and the first race begins now through December 8th. This is a 5K race series. Training runs, group runs, portions of races, etc all qualify as long as the distance is 5K. Post your pictures and tag them with #RnRVirtualRun. That’s it! After the series ends on December 31, wait approx. 8-10 weeks to get your medals in the mail.
