Do you Rock 'n' Roll?
A friend and I were talking about the series a few weeks ago during one of our weekday runs. I was on the fence about my next marathon and getting her thoughts on which one I should do. Even though the Rock 'n' Roll San Diego marathon fits well into my schedule, we both describe this race series the same way: a circus.
Whatever happened to simply running a race for the sake of running a race? Do we really need concerts from C-list artists at the finish line? Or another race shirt that we'll never wear?? The Rock 'n' Roll San Diego race is $160 for the marathon. No thanks. You can count me out of those. I'm personally not interested in the circus atmosphere of these races. I may rock, but I don't roll that way.
