Run the Bluegrass in Kentucky

TC Mattoon (HF18537) -First of all, y’all from Kentucky have my respect after running “Run the Bluegrass” today. I think I’d rather run in ninety percent humidity than tackle the hills we ran today on my training runs every week. I’m a slow half marathoner and I’m ok with that. I’ve been getting slowly fasterContinue reading “Run the Bluegrass in Kentucky”

Marine Corps Historic Half

Gregory Rouson (HF8068, MM12723, DA2354) Lifetime half marathon #194 and Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon #3…DONE!!! The course was as tough as ever but the 6am start and near-perfect weather made up for the punishing Hospital Hill(s). I think it’s pretty safe to say that this has become one of my favorite hometown races. 👍🏾Continue reading “Marine Corps Historic Half”

Katina Green (HF12236, MM15380, DA3564) – MedalMonday…knocked out HM #81 at the Denver Colfax Marathon event on Sunday. It was great weather with a pretty decent route of downtown Denver.

Fargo Then Skedaddle

Lisa Atkins (HF13871) -Happy Medal Monday! First ever back to back half marathons! I’m sore, but happy. Half’s # 25/26 and states # 17/18. LOVED Fargo and Sioux Falls! Fargo was wonderfully supported, with so much on course crowd support. And Sioux Falls Skedaddle was super quiet, on a pretty greenway trail. And the bestContinue reading “Fargo Then Skedaddle”
