New Mexico Chili Peppers series Marathon was an out and back flat 1 mile in 1 mile back. You put a rubber band on your wrist when you came in. Needed 12 for 26.2 😜Warm windy at times .Great runner support with lots of hydration and snacks 🙂 Woo 🙌🏼Hoo #state#8 #marathonmaniacs #doubleagent #runninglife #goals #medalmonday

Katina Green (HF12236, MM155380, DA3564) – MedalMonday….Knocked out HM#76 at the Lisbon, Portugal Race event. Beautiful and scenic course that started at the 25 de Abril bridge (reminiscent of the San Francisco golden gate bridge) and continued for a few miles along the bridge, before hitting the streets of Lisbon and finishing up in the beautiful area of Belem. Since Lisbon is a very hilly city, I appreciate the race facilitators outlining a fun flat course. The race drew participants from all over the world. It is one I definitely recommend to others.

Sunday saw the super fun Oscar-themed Red Carpet Run Half in Orting. Friendly event, which was a fundraiser for a local runner doing the London Marathon. Fabulous aid stations and a fabulous hand-crafted medal.

Barbara Rausch- (HF16197, DA3430, MM14998) -The Shamrock’n Half today in Sacramento is half number 160. I always ask myself why I run these races. The answer is for my health and to see friends. The rain held off and it was a fun day. I forgot that I had I AM SUN printed on my bib in celebration of hitting Sun Level last year.
Karen Flynn (MM4024, DA158, HF1043) & Dan Delino (MM4049, DA161, HF1058) –
at Run Through Redlands. First time running this race and it was awesome, even though it was all hills! This was my 5th YTD & 193rd lifetime half marathon
Katie Galvin (HF18478, DA3721, MM15882) -Ran the Inaugural Annapolis Running Festival Half Marathon on Saturday and enjoyed getting to run through the downtown area by the water. But It was hilly and windy!! Pretty sure I looked like I was running like Phoebe from Friends getting hit by the crosswinds coming down the bridge towards the end 🤣 and the finish line kept being blown down so the finish line was down by the time I crossed 🤷♀️ For an inaugural event, it was pretty good!
