59th Annual RRCA National Convention

Wow, what a whirlwind of a week! I’m still trying to catch up from being gone this past weekend, but it’s completely worth it for the time I got to spend at the Annual RRCA Convention this past weekend. I am so thankful to the Lynchburg Road Runners Club for letting the Marketing Committee go. We had a blast and learned a ton! Here’s a little recap of our weekend in “the Big D”.

My mom and I traveled to DC on Thursday afternoon, went to the race expo Friday and played tourist the rest of the day and all day Saturday, the race was Sunday, and then we came home and I went to work on Monday.
