Gearing up for my next half marathon!

Who Wants to Run the Iron Girl with Me?

It's official! On Sunday April 14th, I will be running the 10th Annual Athleta Iron Girl Half Marathon!
Iron Girl’s Mission is to Empower Women Toward a Healthy Lifestyle! 

After the Women's Half Marathon in November, I pretty much felt like I was done with longer distance running. I finished the race and decided that I didn't like it. Well, I have reflected about it a lot. First thing I thought of was that I had no family at the finish line. My parents were out of town, so I had no one to be in charge of my son while I ran. That was definitely anti-climatic. Then I realized that after all of that training, I was bound to feel some let down. Finally I realized that I HAVE to run a half again. I owe it to myself. I need the training. I need the fitness and I need the fun.

I have signed up for the Iron Girl Half Marathon. I am very blessed to be a Polar Ambassador, and this will be the first race that Polar is a sponsor that I will race in. That is VERY exciting. I ran the 5K last year and it was tough. There is a big bridge to run over and it is kind of... um... well hard! But that makes it even better! Who doesn't love a challenge!

The best part is, I am giving away an Iron Girl Half Marathon entry for Clearwater on April 14th as well! Who wants to run with me??? or ahead of me??? or even behind me??? It's going to be a blast!

  4. Good for you! Have at that distance again and show it what you've got! Wish I could join you....love the Iron Girl triathlon events and I'm sure their running events are just as fun. But I'll be in Boston that weekend, running a marathon. ;) Good luck and have fun! p.s., I have a baseball-playing son too...he had 3 practices on Sunday - crazy!

  9. I've done 5 half marathons thus far and think it's my favorite distance now. 10k is good too. :)
