A few years back I ran Tobacco Road Half Marathon for the first and only time. I had heard this race was flat and fast, and many people run it to get their marathon BQ. Yes it was flat and fast but there were some aspects of the race I didn’t like. After 3 years I’m giving the race another chance. A lot of things can change in 3 years and I have no doubt the organizers have made some wonderful changes. Bring it on Tobacco Road
I am also super excited to be running Rock and Roll Raleigh in April, then Hospital Hill in June. I’ve had the pleasure of running this race every day since it started. It’s a challenging course but fun and local. There is rumblings that this may be the last year but I hope that’s not the case.
