Rock N Roll San Diego 1/2 Marathon

I have to say that this photo sums up my Rock N Roll San Diego experience. It was all about the trip to San Diego, staying at the Hard Rock Hotel, The RNR expo, having FUN and of course, the 1/2 marathon.

Even with having a MG64 at the expo I was able to pull off a 2:05:18. The weather was hotter and more humid than I have been training in. The route was pretty much along a highway and not very scenic. However, in typical RNR style, the expo and post race party were excellent.

Next race...TBD.

I will be at the RNR Seattle at the end of the month to cheer on Tim (

PS, if you are wondering who the guy behind me in this photo is, it is Michael (


Great job Erin, keep up the good work! I can't even imagine running a half marathon in 2 hours, LOVE IT!

April Fools 1/2 Marathon Plus 15km cool down

After my minor breakdown at work on Friday, I set off on Saturday for Sechelt.  I have run the April Fool's Half Marathon two times and this was my third time.  It never fails to be hilly and hard.   Sunday morning I started off at in Gibsons ready to run to Mission Point Park.  I took it very conservatively knowing that I would be adding another 15kms on at the end of the 'race'.   I crossed the finish line, collected my medal, filled my water bottles, ate a  piece of bagel and a bite of banana and kept running west.   I do not recommend running your longest run before a marathon in Sechelt if you are not used to hills.  That place is full of 12-15% grades both up and down. At the end of the day, I ran from 9:17am - 2pm with a few quick breaks to refill bottles, eat gels and take few rocks out of my shoes.   After a shower and some real food, I was back on the ferry to North Vancouver.  Reward:  White Spot Legendary Burger combo with cheese and a Coke.  

Who is the April Fool for Running this Far?

With only two more long long runs before my marathon taper, I set out on a 34km adventure around Vancouver.  I had great company and I felt pretty good.  The hills in Vancouver won but I think it will be good training for next week's longest run and ultimately the marathon.
