Shani Waite (MM15806, DA3483, HF17863)

Another one in the books with my running of the Kiawah Island, SC marathon this past Saturday. I will say, a very beautiful location, well organized and just the right amount of course difficulty 😬

Julie Leahy (HF13553)

Medal Monday! The BCS Marathon + Half Marathon is a great race. Awesome swag, a worthy cause and flawless race organization.

Karen Flynn (HF1043, DA158, MM4024)

MedalMonday #MotivationMonday from my 178th lifetime half marathon at the Holiday Running Festival 12/12/21! I highly recommend this half for some holiday cheer. Congratulations to all the runners!

Sue Stevens (HF8593, DA2452, MM12891)

On Saturday I ran half #275 at Santa Runs Tacoma in WA. Truly lousy weather, but friends on the course, cheerful volunteers and my jingle bell hat helped see me through.

Sharon Peerenboom (HF3407)

No-medal Monday. Yesterday I hit 2021K for 2021 in front of my alma mater. 5K later I crossed the finish line for half #50 and found out the finisher medals didn’t arrive. It was a great day. I can wait for the medal.

MedalMonday BMW Dallas Marathon. My first Full Marathon !!! I’m sticking to the Half distance – this was too much 🤣🤣🤣

Denise Smith (HF8002, DA1839, MM11818)

A wet Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon yesterday. It was my fifth time running this race. I was happy that there was wine at the finish, despite the rain and late start.

Dani Shown (HF4557, DA565, MM8045)

Dallas BMW Half this morning with my husband. Challenge weekend (5k + half). 50th Anniversary race. Loved it the second time around. This was my 100th half in 2018 and my 150th this morning. Nice cool weather, clear skies and lots of course support from the neighborhoods we went through. Just an all around good time here.

Patty Bishop (HF12118)

Finished out the year with Half Marathon #185, at the ‘Holiday Classic Half Marathon’, in Loma Linda, California. This area is known for its wild burrows and I got lucky to see them today…

Glenn Richardson (MM14162, DA3076, HF16007)

The venue was great, lots of space, easy access points for crew, challenging but fun trails.
