On Sunday, my daughter and I will be running the Virginia Beach Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon. It will be my second and Sami’s (15 yrs old) first. To celebrate, AT&T in DC, @DCMobility, is offering my readers a running (or any sport) gadget giveaway. (This is a sponsored post.)
We have stuck with our training and we are ready. Last Sunday, we ran 11 miles which was the longest we’ll run until the race. We made it. Our goal is to finish. We’d love to finish under 3 hours, but if we finish, we’ll be happy.
Training for Half Marathon in DC
In June, we ran 5 miles in downtown DC. We stopped along the way to take photos at a few famous spots.
Since this post is sponsored by AT&T’s @DCMobility, I thought it was perfect to share our DC running photos.
And last, but not least, with the Washington Memorial behind us.
We started training earlier in the year and ran a 5k in February when it was bitter cold.
So now we’ll be running our 13.1 miles in the heat. I ran the same half marathon 3 years ago and I love it because you finish on the beach.
I’m so proud of my daughter. She set a goal and is about to achieve it. What are your running goals? The running gadgets in this giveaway will help you meet your running (or fitness) goals.
