Running Into Fall

This is my favorite time of year to run and one of my favorite ways to close out the summer is at the Virginia Beach Rock n Roll Half Marathon. Every summer John and I spend the long holiday weekend working the event and it is always a treat! If you're in the market for a fun half marathon next year, put this one on your list. It is flat, includes a band every mile and the last two miles finish along the beach boardwalk. There is a music festival along the boardwalk and plenty of things to do. The headliner Beach Concert a few years ago was Journey [my favorite high school band]. Am I dating myself? The medal is pretty cool too!

I had a bonus day Sunday. I ran on the beach, hung out and caught a few rays and watched the wind surfers [amazing]. Funny, I'm always ready for fall after Labor Day Weekend. But that is what is so great about being a runner. We get to run right through all the seasons and experience them one step at a time.

Here's to carmel apples and colorful foliage!
