While I think it’s fantastic that they’re adding so many new events to the Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon series, it’s kind of a bummer that they’ve also added a new heavy medal above and beyond Rock Legend. It’s called Rock Idol and you need to complete 10 events to claim the prize. They don’t even have the design posted yet so I’m not going to think about it.
I have already signed up for the inaugural Portland half which is exciting because it very well may be the first event that my family would be there for. I have a year to plan this “family reunion” so I hope it works out!
February will bring the Pasadena event also, which is tempting because it’s Pasadena (I’ve done a lot of running there) but it’s also off-putting because it’s Pasadena (it might be a hard course).
