Three Halfs in Four Months

I had a goal of running three half marathons in one year. I just didn’t plan to run three halfs over the course of four months.

But you know, sometimes weird stuff like that happens.


New Orleans Half Marathon {February 2016}

A little warm in New Orleans for February, but it was still a lot of fun to run with my normal race companions as well as other running friends from Plano.

Summary: Fun and crazy. Cool medal. Great sightseeing along the course – including historic cemeteries, the French Quarter, bubble machines and men wearing red dresses without appropriate undergarments.





Nashville Half Marathon {April 2016}

Raining – epic rains, which faded away leaving hot and humid weather. I traveled there with my normal race companions but had the bonus of running the race with my Galloway (and former work) friend, Stephanie!

Summary: Awesome scenery, horrible hills, great bands. Neat medal.




Joplin Half Marathon {May 2016}

Very warm and very little shade, yet this is a race that raises money for victims of the Joplin tornado so who cares. This trip was just for Kelly and me – and Jeff Galloway. (yay!)

Summary: Holy cow are there ever hills (!), amazing crowd support, friendly runners, Jeff Galloway (!), emotional running through the tornado’s path and the flags commemorating the victims.
