I shall be going for the Standard Chartered Half Marathon tomorrow, my second Standard Chartered event in three years (the previous in 2003), and my third half marathon in three (the other being the Army Half Marathon back in September this year).
My running number is 12793, and I’ll be wearing a blue adidas running shirt and black army running shorts. Do say “hi” to me (especially if you’re a girl) if you see me!
I saw your posts and I thought I would share with you our site Fifty States HALF Marathon Club http://www.HalfMarathonClub.com . Help us get the word out! Come join our club! We will give nice awards for reaching your goal. We have a 50 STATE CHALLENGE and a 100 HALF ANYWHERE CHALLENGE.
The 100 HALF ANYWHERE CHALLENGE is exclusive to half marathons and half ironmans, but can be completed in ANY state.
BUT our 50 STATE CHALLENGE accepts marathons, half marathons, half ironmans, and full ironmans ALL TO COUNT TOWARD YOUR 50 STATE GOAL (any of those events can count toward a state)!
We are having a member event for members to meet other members from all over the US on January 30th down in Florida at the weekend event of ING Miami Marathon and Half Marathon for those club members that can make it. And then we will be holding an annual event and give out awards annually in a different state every year.
Check the site out and hope too have you as a new member soon!
