So while I started training for the Rock and Roll Nashville Full Marathon, AKA The Country Music Marathon, about 2 months ago (post injury it was the race that fit the best into my schedule and was within driving distance) it just got REAL-
I started training with the intention of running the full marathon in Nashville and have been sticking to my training plan, but I was hesitant to officially sign up at first. I was just coming back from months off running and was really focused on recovering from the injuries that made me miss almost all of 2012. Plus after my Marine Marathon Deferment I didn’t want to put my heart into training for and running a marathon only to have to drop out.
However, my #comebetter plan has been right on track and all is going well. I recently did a 16 miler (and survived) and I have 18 and 20 mile runs coming up. I can’t stop thinking about my next marathon. I am really looking forward to it. Plus, I know that if I am not registered, I may lack motivation to finish that 20 miler. So BOOM. I’m in! Marathon #2.
I am excited to run and excited to see Nashville, I have never been there before. In my head it is all sorts of Southern, country music, down home eatin’, fabulousness. Sure hope I am right. Heck, I may even go to the free country concert after the marathon.
Have you ever been to Nashville?
If so… Where do I go? What do I do? and most importantly – Where do I eat?
Ever run a race put on by Rock and Roll? What should I expect from them?
