Ran the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in Nashville today. Beat my goal time. Those who said it would be hilly were not lying.

I was originally planning on doing the full but switched distances. Couldn’t properly train with the wedding and honeymoon in the past couple of months. But with the rolling hills I’m happy that I decide to switch.
Congrats! That race came up in conversation during a group run today. One guy ran it a few years back and said quite a few people running the marathon dropped out after 13.1. Said the rolling hills got the best of many (temps and humidity were an issue, also). I need to run the 1/2 one of these years. Looked into it the past couple years but they were cancelled.

Congrats!  That's my hometown, and I certainly wouldn't want to run that one.

Seattle is pretty brutal as well.

Don't they make it more of a country music-themed race?  Who was your big act?
Have some patience, FFS.

I don’t think there was a big act unless I completely missed it. There was a post-race concert and some bands along the route, but none I’d heard of. Mix of country, rock and blues music. The route was great other than the hills

Looks like I found my spring marathon - Easter weekend in Newport, RI.  A friend of mine is down to 4 states to go and is going to do that one so I think I'll join her.  Only 41 more to go for me  ;D

Newport is a very cool city.  Go check out the Breakers if you have some time.
