Get your mental game ready for that one. With the rain coming down steadily for the entire event, it was sometimes hard to tell if something was a puddle, a hole or both. I didn't hit much traffic after the first mile though there are lots of turns through the entire race that pile up a little bit.
It was neat running from Mile 2 to the 5k line because you get to see the people in from of you making their return. In my case, the leaders were breezing past Mile 3 as I headed in to Mile 2 and it gives you a little push.

This was just a training run and I started taking turns wide and trying to pick up some extra distance while noticing a lot of people not taking the shortest route possible. I definitely recommend shaving turns as much as you can. Hugging the right side curb is not always a good choice. Course Support: It seemed like there were fewer bands on the course than at previous RnR events but it could have just been a lack of noticing. Water stops were well manned but spirits were damped by the 45 degree, rain filled morning. I know there were Port-a-potties on the course, but I didn't see where they were.
There was an enthusiastic GU stop around Mile 8? Finish: The finish is a nice little downhill to flat section that helps you forget about the hills from earlier in the day.

Nice big medals, sports drinks, water, pretzels, chocolate milk, bananas, chips and PowerBars are a handful when you're trying to hold on your RnR heat sheet on your soaking wet body a the cold, rainy day. Unfortunately due to the weather, Doug and I did not hang out at the Finish festival at all.
Swag: A nice tech t-shirt has come with all of my RnR races and this one falls right in line. I don't know if it's my shape but they never seem to fit me right.
That's OK with me because I plan on making them all into a quilt anyway but for those who like to sport them, it can be kind of disappointing. The medals are, as always, big, heavy and blingy. Rock n Roll DC is a fun race in a great city if you're prepared for some serious hills and the potential for bad weather. RnR management did a good job of preparing the course and the participants for the logistics of running in the nation's capitol.
With 40 states left to go, I don't think this will be a repeat for me any time soon, but it certainly worth the trip if you're looking for a spring race in the North East. Enter race name, keyword or location. Write a Review. What did you think of the race?
