Rock n' Roll Philly Recap

My quest to run twice as many half marathons in 2017 as a I did in 2016 was a success! I can’t quite believe I did it, but Rock n’ Roll Philly marked my 4th half marathon of 2017. I still have one more on my schedule, but I am over the moon happy to have accomplished this huge goal! Two years ago I would have laughed in your face at the thought of running 4 half marathons in a year and here I am planning on running a 5th in just a months time.
I started off the weekend driving down to Philly on Friday morning to spend the weekend with my friend, Sam. We were having a brilliant weekend and had planned to get into the city early on Saturday in order to get to the expo and then maybe check out a museum. Perfect plan, yes?
Well…we were on our way when we were rear-ended at a stop light. Not the perfect thing to happen the day before a race, but we were okay. It could have turned out a lot worse than it was. Thankfully no one was hurt and we walked away with just some soreness.

I just couldn't pull the trigger.
I was SO excited when I got the opportunity to try 5K Crate through BibRave Pros. I had heard wonderful things about 5K Crate and couldn't wait to get my box in the mail.

Each 5K Crate is $59.99 a quarter. This means you'll get 4 boxes a year if you subscribe, each tailored to a season/month. Each box is guaranteed to have 5-7 hand picked items that are worth over $100! That's just…

I have almost been hit by a car 5 times while running. I feel that when I run I am extremely careful, but you can't control other people. I always run in neon colors, if it's dark out I make sure I have a headlamp or my Knuckle Lights, and I seek out the sidewalks in my neighborhood (they are few and far between, but if you look hard enough, they're there).
When looking at my running apparel, I thought it was pretty good. I mean, it was bright and there were some strips around some zippers of reflective material. I put little faith in the "reflective logos" that companies are always writing about, but that's just me.
Thankfully, Brilliant Reflective is making it easier for everyone to be seen. Brilliant Reflective strips come 2 differen…
