Rock-N Bloggers - The List

Good morning friends!  For today's Thursday's thoughts we have the Rock-N-Roll races on our mind.  As you may know we are running R-n-R VA Beach in just over a week and we are getting really excited for it. We are not only running one day, but participating in the Re-mix Challenge which is a race on Saturday and Sunday! 

We are planning to run R-n-R Philly and R-n-R Las Vegas too! In fact we were just selected to be Rock-n Bloggers for Las Vegas! How cool is that?   I'm still not sure what all it entails, but we are excited!

Here is the list of the other Rock-n Bloggers for Las Vegas:
  • Brian@PavementRunner 
  • Carrie@carrieburrows
  • Dorothy@MilePosts
  • Geo@GeorgeMelichar 
  • Jon@jonluciano
  • Kristin Long@BamagirlRUNS 
  • Kristin Stehly@stuftmama
  • Monica@RunEatRepeat 
  • Nikki@ndscottnygren 

  • Do you follow any of these folks? It will be fun to meet up with Monica and Kristin again, but I don't know any of the other bloggers listed so I'll be excited to meet them too.


    Here are some fun facts about the Las Vegas race:

    This will be the 4th year that it's run at night!

    The Las Vegas Strip is closed only two times a year: New Year’s Eve and Rock ’n’ Roll Las Vegas

    The Zappos.com 1/2 of the Half event (10K) has already sold out – that’s nearly 4 MONTHS before it sold out last year!

    There will also be a re-mix challenge for this race too!

    The image above is what will be on the race shirts!

    The RnR people have assured us that there will be more surprises in store for us.  We can't wait to hear what they announce next! 

    That's all for now folks! What's on your mind? What are you thinking about this Thursday?

    8. That is awesome congrats! You guys are going to have so much fun with all those "rockin" races:) I ran Las Vegas the last year that they ran in the morning. They actually put on great race, the half portion of the marathon because it's all on the strip out and back was my favorite part! If I can make it down there that weekend I'll come and give you guys some cheers:)

    10. AWESOME! Congrats. I've done a handful of RnR halfs, and the full in Washington, DC, and had a blast. They're not Disney or anything (haha), but I think they do a great job of organizing these HUGE, fun races! :) Also, I'm dying to do the one in Vegas!

    13. I can't wait to follow your journey! I know I have said this multiple times to you, but my husband and I witnessed the RnR Vegas marathon when we there in Nov. 2012. It was the coolest thing!!! Except, they started in the late afternoon, I think around 4-5pm. So maybe just the half starts later?
      I also hope you have a great run next week!!!! :)
