Inaugural Rocky Run
So Philly decides to finally have a run based on Rocky, starting of course right in front of the Art Museum Steps. They have a 5k and 10k run. Both runs are an out and back to MLK right next to the river.
Tommy Graham, Jared Schierbaum, and I decide to do this run. There was nothing that special about the theme, the course, or anything like that. The course was something we had each run a few times during the Philly Half Marathon. The theme, while cool, is certainly nothing to drive all the way into Philly for on a November Saturday morning. However, there was one big reason to do this race....and you will see that below.
The medal was designed to look like a championship belt. The medal itself is very nice (and big). However it is the band that makes it so special. It has the pictures of Rocky, Clubber Lang, Apollo Creed, and Ivan Drago on it. How freaking cool is that. BEST MEDAL EVER!!!
