So I ran the Virginia Beach 1/2 Marathon with my brother last Sunday. It was a great morning for running and the race went smoothly. It was nice to run at this pace so that I could take in the sites and enjoy the surroundings. The start and finish were great. Plenty of room at the start and the finish was by the beach. It would've been awesome to have lounged on the beach afterwards, but we had to hit the road. Since this was a Rock n Roll event, there was plenty of music on the course and also lots of school bands and cheer leading groups. Some of the middle miles weren't the most interesting, but I would do the race again. The race expo was awesome, lots of vendors, got a couple of great deals. Plus I was able to see Ryan Hall run.
