Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon Race Recap

Being part of the Rock ‘n’ Blog team this year has been so fun.  I ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon on September 27th, 2015.  It was perfect weather and a flat course.  My favorite part though was having race day VIP, which consisted of personal gear check, pre and post food, private indoor bathrooms and mimosas after the race.

IMG_7295I had a great time and I totally recommend running Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose, especially if you are looking for a PR.  Having VIP was amazing and totally worth it. I had a great race day.
