I would like to first of all say that I love this race so much. This is my second time running it and I loved it even more this time. (even though I didn’t PR like I did last year).
Here is my list of Pros/Cons for this race:
My 2013 experience:
We immediately went to the race expo and breezed through that spending the most amount of time taking funny pics
The 4 of us hit up Whole Foods for lunch and then went to our hotel rooms to relax a bit before an evening shake out run.
Around 5 we set out for 3 ish miles around Philly. We saw Love Park, Rodin’s Thinker, the Rocky statue and we ran the Museum “Rocky” Stairs – while singing Eye of the Tiger (of course)
That evening we had dinner and I was in bed by 9. PAAArtay like a Rockstar. But seriously, it was the best nights sleep I have had in a while and when my alarm went off at 5:30am I popped out of bed.
Our plan was to meet for 3 miles before and head over to our corrals, as we all had 16 miles to run that day.
And thats pretty much how it went down. Completely uneventful, super easy breezy and a general joy of a morning. Meggie and I ran together for the race, chatted and caught up on everything that is going on in life. It wasn’t until mile 12 that I stopped talking and turned on my legs. I sped through the last mile at a 7:30 pace and finished feeling strong. Cant really ask for more
Did anyone else run this one? How was it for you?
