The Rock and Roll Marathon

I did my second Rock n Roll half marathon on Sunday, Oct. 21st, 2012, here in St. Louis.  This is the 5th half marathon I have done.  This time around my overall time. That was a bonus.  I worked with a trainer doing lots of hills and speedwork so I think that played a huge part in it. Kristin at www.fitbydefinition.com.  She is great and offers an economical price on workouts with a punch card.

Every time I do a half, I ask myself, why am I doing this?  For me, it is a stress relief to run (cheaper than therapy), it is nice to have a goal to work towards. No one can take your runs away from you.  Somedays are tough, there are good runs, hard runs, and the list goes on and on. But I do it for me. And I tell myself I won’t do the one in April 2013, but chances are I will!
