First and foremost, the course - running through Prospect Park will be amazing and (I imagine) greener than anything Southern California has seen in months. We'll get to run by the Brooklyn Children's Museum, the Prospect Park Zoo, and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.
The second best part for me is the post-concert headliner, which is what Rock 'n Roll is all about (aside from that bling). I'm pretty sure I let out a legit squeal when this e-mail came in a few weeks ago about Nate Ruess being our headliner - I've loved Nate since The Format days certainly, saw him a few times as a part of Fun., and am loving his solo ventures too. Squee! There it is again.
SWAG! This shirt might easily become one of my faves of my running tee collection and I can't wear to rock it after the race on the way home.
And because, duh,the bling. I love collecting medals from inaugural races so I'm excited this one acknowledges that this is the inagurual half marathon for RnR out this way and hopefully I'll be back to do more in the future!
Wanna run Brooklyn with me? It's still 8 weeks away, you've got time to register! If you're not running Brooklyn, that's okay - come run another Rock 'n Roll race with me and earn those Heavy Medal bad boys. Use code RUNMEGANRUN for $15 off a half or full marathon at any other locations (except Las Vegas). Code unfortunately is not good for Brooklyn or Philly, but they're both still cheap, so get in now!
Will I see you in Brooklyn?
