A couple pretty big events this weekend in the area. First, on Saturday:
Escape from Prison Hill Half Marathon
Seriously hilly and challenging half marathon just outside of Carson City. A locla favorite - great organization, fun and tough course, awesome breakfast burritos afterwards. If you have a chance, get out and do this one sometime - you won't be disappointed. You can read a report I did on last year's race here.
Unfortunately, I won't make it to Prison Hill this year - it falls on the day before my spring goal race, the:
Rock 'n' River Marathon and Half Marathon Festival (and 5K and 10K)
This has been my big spring race for a few years now, and it seems like it it for a bunch of people - Great Reno crowd comes out for this one. Starting under the Reno Arch and following the river out west and back, it's a flat, fun course. Sounds like they have a good expo planned at Lawlor Events Center on the UNR campus for Saturday, as well. Hope to see a lot of you out there.
