The Asheville Marathon and Half Marathon at the Biltmore Estate takes place in March. This year I had the pleasure of being able to complete the race as an ambassador. My husband and I made the 8 hour drive from Washington DC to Asheville, NC the Thursday before the race. We’d heard such great things about the area and wanted to be able to explore a bit before the race. Thankfully, the… Read More

The Zooma Annapolis Half Marathon and 10K took place the weekend after Memorial Day. My bestie and I decided to make a weekend out of the event. So we booked a hotel room walking distance from the race on┬áMain Street. I met up with my fellow Race Ambassadors on Friday evening for some chit chat and delicious bites are BAROAK After the meet up, I headed towards Level to meet up with… Read More

On April 28th I ran the GW Parkway Classic. Since moving to Alexandria in July, I had my eye on this race. I had heard that it was one of the most scenic and beautiful local races. The biggest selling point for me was the fact that this race started 7.2 miles from my house. Packet Pickup was available the entire week before the race at the Pacers in Alexandria, which happens… Read More

When I first heard about this race a few years ago, I couldn’t wait until the day that I would finally get to run it. I convinced my hubby and our friends (Mr. and Mrs. RockyMtnPearls) to make a mini vacay out of the whole event. We did the expo the day before and were all ready come race day. On Friday evening we stayed out late for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas… Read More

Last year, my mom and sister did the 10K in Annapolis. I did not cause I was moving from FL to DC that day. But they were so pumped when they came back. They LOVED this race. Naturally my curiosity got the best… Read More

On Sunday, I ran the Capitol Hill Classic 10K in Washington, DC. This is a very family oriented race because it is the primary fundraiser for a local DC school. This is going to be a very short report. On Saturday, I swung by the Pacers at Logan Circle to pick up my packet. The whole process took less than a minute. I grabbed by bib, safety pins, cotton t-shirt, and plastic… Read More

On Saturday, March 15, 2014 I ran the Rock N’ Roll USA Half Marathon. My running buddy Justine and I woke up at 5:00am to get ready and make it over to the starting line in Downtown, DC. Thankfully, my apartment is walking distance from a metro stop. We were able to get up collect ourselves and race (or stumble) out the door. Weather in DC in March can be a gamble…. Read More
