All of the hype for Rock 'n' Roll - Providence was exciting and oh how I wanted to race. However, my hamstring was sore and the expo race fee was $115. On Thursday I decided to volunteer instead...and then I looked at the weather! The weather did not disappoint. They said it was going to rain and it did.

The race started 15 minutes late.
Maybe they should have started talking a little earlier.
Note the rain waited to pour until the race started.

|No, that is not the winner. |
That is a race official goofing off before the real finishers crossed the line.
Look at all that rain!
Would I do it again, Yes! Of course next year I will register for the Rock 'n' Roll Providence early and I will definitely be running. I am currently register for 3 races between October 2011 and May 2012. Can you guess which race I am registered for in February?
