Philly Rock and Roll Half Marathon

a cool keepsake from the expo
As I mentioned a few weeks ago, the awesome company Bibrave, who I'm an ambassador for, offered me a spot in the Philly Rock and Roll Half to help promote the race and Bibrave. Even though I have a big 12 hour race only 7 days after the half, I was really excited to take it on. I haven't raced since May so I've been eager lately to race and since becoming a Bibrave Pro, I've been eager to do a race representing them.

I knew a little about the Rock and Roll series as I ran this same race in 2011 and of course I always see a lot about the various races on social media. The Philly race used to be the Philadelphia Distance run before it became the Rock and Roll half therefore it's pretty popular as it's been around a long time. This year at least 20,000 runners were expected including Kara Goucher and Deena Kastor, I was pretty excited to be running a race with those two amazing ladies.
Deena broke the Master's World Record!
