A couple pictures from the Maine Coast half. There were photographers on the course, but I don’t think they’ve been posted yet. So what I’ve got are the pictures my husband snapped at the start and finish. I love my YMX by Yellowman shirt of a phoenix, and it paired well with my Skirt Sports Gym Girl Ultra running skirt.
Here’s a picture from the GOTR 5k on Sunday. I’m only posting a picture from a distance because I don’t think I should post identifiable photos of minors that aren’t my children. The GOTR people are in the bright green shirts. The girls were so inspiring and adorable. I’m really proud of my running buddy.
I signed up for my December half marathon! I chose the Kiawah Island half, which is about a 50 minute drive from Charleston, SC. I’ve been to Charleston twice before, both times in my mid-20s. I’m excited to go back, especially to run. I think we’re going to stay in Charleston rather than on the Island as neither my husband nor I golf.
I’m looking for a few more races to fill out my 1-half-a-month for 2015 calendar. I don’t have one for October or November yet. Since my full marathon is the first weekend in October, I need a race that is late in the month. We do have the Mohawk Hudson here, but it’s the weekend after my full and I think even run/walking it would be a bad idea. I’m thinking about doing the RnR Philly, since that’s October 31. The only downside, which isn’t really one, is that I’ve done that race before. I did enjoy it, even if I was slightly injured.
For November, I wish I had signed up to run the Space Coast Half since I have a friend who is running the full that day (her first!) and my husband and I are going to support her. But the half is sold out. 😦
Anyone have suggestions for races in October & November? Any good halfs in August? The one I was thinking of doing falls on a weekend that isn’t looking like it will work out (the 15th), so I have a couple ideas but nothing solid yet.
