I'm running Miami Beach RnR Half-Marathon too! We will be staying at the Chesterfield which is in the heart of South Beach and only a couple of blocks from the Start, Finish, and Expo.
This will be my 6th Half this year and my 12th overall. I'm really looking forward to it. The Rock 'n Roll ones are the best by far!

I've run some RnRs before... mixed bag, for sure. Seattle was great, New Orleans... not so much. But the course is great and I don't have to even drive to get to the starting line! So no complaints here! Anyway, the course is part of my usual weekend long run route, so if I want to run that day, I'll need to sign up! LOL!

If it's any consolation you will LOVE the R&R half marathons. They are so much fun! I completed the Chicago one in 2010 and it was great. And I looked at the course, I've been to Miami before and the course looks like it will be pretty sweet.
I don't plan on starting my training for this race until October, but I'll be posting back for sure (maybe not in this thread LOL as that's a long time off). Yes, pay increase thursday!! Register early :D
So is anyone planning on running the Rock and Roll Miami half marathon on 12/11/11?? My husband and I are running it and meeting up with some fellow sparkers might be fun! And there is the added bonus of Virtual Training together :) It's going to be an awesome course, it's a loop through South Beach, and the race hotels are actually pretty reasonable.
