My husband likes to say “those who plan early, plan often” because I plan things so far out that things can’t help but change. Most of the time, I like planning things far enough out that I can be flexible about other things that come up.
Today Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is having a sale on some of their races (through 11:59 p.m. PST) which is about 1230 here.
I logged on eagerly at 1220 and then twiddled around for ten minutes hitting the refresh button every couple of minutes until the site went live. My goal was to score a registration in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon. Fortunately, not a lot of people are awake at midnight PST so I got a spot easily.
It works really well for my schedule, it’s over a long weekend so hopefully I won’t have to take any time off work and P will be able to join me, too.
I am really tempted to add another registration in there, too because they’re so cheap! But I also know that I’m looking at a lot of distance races next year and I need to balance the costs by picking cheaper options. I’d love to register for the Philadelphia RnR, but it’s the same weekend as the Equinox Marathon, which will be the cheapest one I do because I won’t have to travel for it.
I really like the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events. My first ever marathon was the Seattle Rock ‘n’ Roll and I had so much fun and the music was fantastic. I still recommend them to anyone who is looking for a good first race experience, at any distance.
