Rock ‘n’ Roll USA – Inaugural Success

I learned a valuable lesson from my legs on Saturday, something I needed to know before the eventual summer training for MCM 2012:

Never underestimate the combination of a stubborn,
goal-driven mindset and a hefty dose of adrenaline.

Mission 1:39:xx = accomplished!

More to come soon! Today, the muscles & mind took a much-needed rest…

Edited to add: this was the “Inaugural” Rock ‘n’ Roll USA Marathon & Half-marathon. RnR did a great job organizing 24,000+ runners through a course that most of us were already a fan of!
