My first half since the pandemic.
This was my lifetime 50th half marathon.

Katina Green (HF#12236, MM#155380, DA#3564)

No medal for #MedalModay, since they didn’t make it Tulsa, Oklahoma in time from Long Beach, CA…..Nonetheless, another 13.1 miles (HM #70) in the books, after knocking out the Route 66 half marathon on Sunday. It was a hilly course, especially the first few miles, but fun nonetheless. I enjoyed the southern hospitality and friendliest of the race organizers and locals, as well as engaging with fellow half fanatics/marathon maniacs in the Maniac Corner/VIP area, pre-race. Overall great time in Tulsa.

Adding another Route 66 Marathon(No) Metal Monday post. Before and after… The six shots I had on the course didn’t help ease the pain of those hills! 🤣🍻I followed advice to not PR this one and just have fun.
I was at Urban Bourbon last month and I’ll give this race props for on-course spectator and volunteer support (did I mention the shots?) but UBHM still wins out for the post-race party.
Also glad I inadvertently stumbled on the Greenwood District near the expo. Very powerful.

Jen Merkel (HF18545)

Leveling up weekend in Cotter, Arkansas for the White River Half and Tulsa for Route 66! Very different courses and temps, very nice folks at both. Waiting on that ship to unload Route 66 medals…

Jennifer Cain (HF17893)

MedalMonday is #NoMedalMonday this time (at least for now!)— but we did get free race photos so….. good trade.

Happy Medal Monday from Coastal Virginia
