So, RNR half is an OK race, if you follow them on FB you can usually get a $13 discount on the 13th of any given month. LUCKY13 is the discount code.

It is pretty well run, and they've changed the layout/course so you're not running the last 2 miles with the sun pounding down you on the boardwalk - just one mile in the pounding sun. And the finish area used to be a huge bottleneck, they've improved that a lot over the years too.

It is historically a hot miserable day. There have only been two really nice years -2003 (I didn't run due to work) and 2006 (my course PR) I have run it 11 of the 12 years it's been alive, and have only gone under 2:00 three times. Last year I ran a 1:37 at Shamrock and a 2:05 at Rock and Roll. I just don't run well in the heat.

If you had the chance, get back some year for Shamrock - well run, cooler temps, better beer at the post-race party. Half usually sells out by Christmas so register early.

Cheers, Kevin
