I am registered for the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll half marathon on June 22nd.
Last year I ran this as my 2nd half marathon. I ran the first half with Leah, and ended up with a 20 minute PR (that was replaced a few weeks later at half marathon #3).
I was coming off post first marathon slump, and this race was just what I needed to get me excited about running again. I had no real goal, other than to not waste 15 minutes of race time in line for a potty (like half marathon #1).
Since I am not yet really allowed to run fast (and, to be honest, couldn't run fast, even if I tried), I'll just keep the potty thing as my goal again for this year.
OnlineShoes.com and Brooks invited me to their blogger event again, too.

We're meeting after the race this year, which means I won't need to take a late night ferry, followed by an early morning ferry for the race (a seriously big deal). And since a PR is not going to happen, it will also give me something more to look forward to other than the Jamba Juice at the finish.
I think this race may be just what I need now, too.
