A Philly Race for the Books!

Rockin' the 1/2 marathon medal

Hi friends!

What did I do this past Sunday? Oh, nothing much—just ran a cool 13.1 miles with my pops, that’s all 🙂

As I mentioned in previous posts, the fam and I headed down to Philly this past weekend for a little Rock & Roll half marathon action, and can I just say…it was pretty awesome! Not only was I incredibly proud of my dad for running the entire thing (and, ahem, myself as well. I mean, neither one of us really put our all into training this year, so it’s a miracle we even finished), but it was such an amazing feeling to be running through the empty (and hill-free!) streets of downtown Philly with 20,000 other people.

The weather was perfect for running, too—sunny and upper 60s.

So all-in-all, I’d say it was a pretty awesome trip. Here’s to doing it again—right dad ?!

P.S. As an aside, during some of our down time on Saturday we headed over to the Reading Terminal Market, which was a stone’s throw away from our hotel, the Philadelphia Downtown Marriott. What an amazing place! Lots of great bakeries, fresh produce and fish, chocolates and candy, delis and tons of other things. If you’re ever in the area, I’d definitely recommend checking it out.
