Before 2015 started I already had 2 races scheduled, both ultras and both scaring the living hell out of me. When I got the news about being a Rock n Blogger, I realized it was a brilliant opportunity to really enjoy some races. Have fun, meet people, see new places, add music and earn some awesome bling...shiny sparkly bling. I will live the moment of each and every race and sneak in a cheeky little Half PR attempt somewhere!

I've been to SF twice for crazy short trips, including my last ever live REM concert at Berkeley. This time I want to check out Vesuvio, City Lights bookstore, Haight Ashbury and see the city on foot. Did I mention the hills and running over the Golden Gate Bridge? Oh. My.
Portland fits in really well with a Monday holiday and 50k training. We usually head straight for Cannon Beach and it is time to explore the town, I hear their donuts are pretty good? The medal ribbon is the iconic carpet design from PDX airport, love it! Airport shoe selfie?
I lived in Scotland for 25 years of my life and have never been to Ireland. Let's fix that. Mum will be getting a bonus visit then we're off to Dublin with my Dad for the race (no Guinness please, we're pretending to be athletic). The entire lot of us will be doing the fun run after the Half. On the way back we're stopping over in Iceland. When is RnR Reykjavik?!
Vancouver Oct 25
Last time I was in Van it was 2008 for REM (again), the kickoff show of what turned out to be their last tour. It was magical. I'm excited to head out for some fresh sea air, green trees (and rain?)
Las Vegas Nov 16
Every year since we ran it in 2012 I check flight/hotel prices for this race then don't make it. This year it is 100% GAME ON. I am contemplating Elvis costumes again, because awesomeness. We got married in Las Vegas, maybe we should renew vows at the run through wedding?! Wait, what if he says no?
Double Beat, Rock Trio, Groupie and Roadie.
More! More! We are also earning the International Rocker medal for racing in 2 different countries (in fact we will be racing in 3 countries). I'm excited for the redesigned 2015 medal to be unveiled. Show me da bling!
