Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Experience

For those that don’t know, the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon is part of a series of events that takes place in 11 different cities. There a half-marathon and full-marathon along with live music, food, and a health and fitness expo. More importantly, the runners of this event have raised more than $310 million for participating charities.Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Experience

A-1 Self Storage is proud to share the experience of two of our very own who participated in the Half Marathon here in San Diego, Rosie Galford and Tiffany BeMent.


While Rosie has ran in other events, this was her first time running in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and she felt this was the best course yet. “The beautiful sights of San Diego as well as the fresh air, live music from many different bands, and the thousands of supporters that came out to cheer the participants on, made this an unforgettable event for me.” The support of the spectators helped Rosie push through the 11th mile, which was her toughest, and allowed her to finish in an impressive 1 hour and 57 minutes.

“I would definitely recommend the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon to anyone looking to run their first marathon!” – Rosie Galford

Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Experience

For Tiffany, this was the second Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon she has participated in. The course was much improved from when she last ran in 2011, with the finish line being in downtown right next to Petco Park. There was so much excitement throughout the city during the race and continued after with a concert in the outfield of Petco Park. “My favorite part was seeing the whole community come together to support each other. There were complete strangers on the sidelines cheering and encouraging the runners to keep going, as well as handing out snacks and drinks. At one point there was a little boy with a squirt gun in his hand squirting those who waved at him as they went by.” The support of the community helped Tiffany push through her foot and IT band problems and finish in 1 hour and 48 minutes. She came in 84th overall in her bracket.

“If you have ever thought about doing a race, just sign up, you won’t regret it!” – Tiffany BeMent

Storage Tips for the Summer

Layout 1

Summer is almost here! Whether you are a student storing your dorm room over the summer or a family storing your items during a move, we are here to offer up some useful tips. There is no need to learn from your mistakes when we can help prevent them altogether!

Layout 1


  • Pick one room at a time: This way when you pack your boxes into storage they will be better organized for when you go to unpack.
  • Pack Smart: Pack heavy items into smaller boxes so that they are easier to move. Don’t try to fit as much as you can into a large box and risk throwing out your back!
  • No Newspaper: Don’t use newspaper to back anything that can be stained by ink. Often times the ink will transfer from the newspaper to your items while in storage.
  • Metal Objects: Before putting metal objects into storage, such as bikes, tools, etc., make sure to wipe them down with a rag. This will help prevent rust!
  • Appliances: Make sure to defrost refrigerators and freezers before storing them. Leave the door ajar while inside the storage unit. All other appliances should be clean and dry as well.
