Virginia Beach Rock and Roll Half Marathon

I gave a rundown of the race over on my running blog - but I thought I would give you a little picture tour of the weekend.
Despite it being at Virginia Beach – I never even put on a bathing suit. I did go to the beach Sunday after the race, but I was still so hot and tired that I didn’t feel like laying in the sun. I sat on my towel and talked with friends and then walked along the water for a little bit until I got ants in my pants to go do something else.
The only pictures from the Expo I have are of the Brooks carnival.  They were doing an explanation of the new gel gunk stuff in their shoes. I also tried to win a pair of shoes by tossing a ball into a shoe – I didn’t win. :(
No trip to the beach is complete without mini golf. This was the most fun course I have played in a long time. (my 2 holes in one may or may not have anything to do with that :-D )
Eeek  - Game time!

  1. You're totally awesome! and I agree that medal is the coolest I've seen in a long time. Your time is amazing, certainly nothing to scoff at. I'm so proud to be your bloogy friend!

    BTW - there is this chick that takes one of my classes and the first time she came I was a little shocked because she looks just like you! I kept thinking - is that Ang? but obviously I know you wouldn't come all the way to Nova Scotia for a stupid exercise class!
