Last Week’s Seattle Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon Training Workouts Recap and Weekend Update (6/8-6/14)

It was the final training week leading up to the Seattle Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon on Saturday. I continued with the Runner’s World Run Streak and it’s been 21 days now! Here’s what I did:

Monday – Had a nice early morning 3 miler for day 15 of the #RWRunStreak.
Tuesday – Ran 5 miles.  Wednesday – 1 mile to continue the streak.  Thursday – 3 miles on the treadmill.  Friday – Ran 1 mile for the streak. Saturday – It was an awesome day to run the Seattle Rock’n’Roll Half marathon! Also, I got a chance to meet some awesome runners for the first time! Recap coming soon.  Sunday – Recovery mile for day 21 of the #RWRunStreak.  

It was a good week since I got my training runs done. Now for the weekend update, I drove up to Seattle on Thursday evening so I could go to the Seattle Rock’n’Roll Expo on Friday to pick up my bib and timing chip. It was at the Century Link Field Event Center.

We got there around 10:30ish. It was a lot bigger than the Portland Expo. Below is a pic of where we went through to get our bibs.IMG_6046

Here’s a pic of the shirt and my bib. The countdown sign:The Brooks merchandise area had mirrors with sayings on them like in Portland. It’s such a cute idea.

I can feel your awesomeness! 🙂
Brooks also had a games area where you could do all the stations and they give you a prize. We did it last year and we didn’t have much time so we opted out this year. Here’s a pic by the Run part of the Run Happy sign.  
  Here’s a cool SpongeBob van.

I was good and didn’t buy anything at the Expo. There were many vendors but I wasn’t planning on staying long.

Later in the evening, we went to my nephew’s school carnival. It’s been a while since I’ve been to a carnival. I didn’t get many pictures but the kiddos played a bunch of carnival games. There was clowns making balloon animals/swords, and there was even a cake walk. My niece won a cake!  The kiddos had a blast!


  Those were the highlights of the weekend besides the Seattle Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon on Saturday. Saturday was a busy and tiring day since I had to drive back to Portland to work on Sunday. It was a fun weekend regardless.

How’d your weekend go? Did you race?

I’m linking up with Tara from Running ‘n’ Reading for the Weekend Update.

  1. I didn’t race, but my DH did. (he did fine, especially considering it was hot, humid and they delayed the start by 40 minutes!)

    School carnivals. I went to mine as a kid, then when I was in a different school, got to go to the one at the school where my mom taught. I won goldfish once! (do they still give goldfish? used to be a big thing where I grew up) They can live a long time if you take care of them…I had one live so long he lost his color and you could barely see him in the bowl. I was quite upset when he finally passed. I think he lived 2 years with us. Wow, hadn’t thought of that in ages.


  2. Okay, I accidentally posted that before I was finished typing – ha! Anyway, congratulations on your awesome race finish; you did GREAT! Thanks so much for linking up with the blog today; hope your week is off to a great start!


  3. Looks like you had a great week! You did awesome in your race! Looks like you guys had fun at the expo and mom looks like she had fun too! 🙂 Ah I remember the carnival at Arrowhead. That must have been fun to go back there!


  4. Looks like everyone had fun at the expo- yeah!!! Totally different look to the shirt from the Nashville one that I ran in April! Great job on the run streak!! No race for me this weekend , just some hot sweaty training miles 🙂


  5. I tried to convince my husband to do a half in OR this spring. I’m trying to do one on every state, my MIL & SIL live outside Seattle – kill 2 birds with 1 stone. But no, he didn’t want to go west so we ended up at Annapolis in May.

    I like to shop. I like good race expos. 🙂

    Sounds like a busy & fulfilling weekend!


  6. I loved that expo last year – or was it the year before? time flies by so fast I can’t remember! Anyhow, I still have the prizes I got, well at least the cool Run Happy tote. Great job keeping up with that run streak! I am looking forward to your race review!!
