Decided to add two more states to the list this summer. My little sister graduates from high school in Dallas beginning of June, so the runner in me googled "half marathons in Dallas June 2013" and there JUST so happens to be on June 9th near where mom and Haley life. Score! It's a Wounded Warriors Half too, I love running in races to support my military. My mom is going to run the 10k, I am so proud of her and can't wait to see her finish!
Wanting to get another close state out of the way, my FAVORITE state has a half in mid-July, the Missoula Half. Might spend the week up in Montana exploring my youth, then run the race. Really want to get in Idaho this year, so will have to do some research on that one.
Three states, will get up to 10 so far toward my goal so pretty stoked about it! Who knows what the fall looks like, there could be a random race always thrown in the mix.
It's been great training this week, my lab puppy is over a year old now and loves to run. He keeps my pace quick and sleeps well after so best of both worlds. Although whenever we run by the water, instead of taking a sip in the stream he crawls in it. At least he's entertaining!
