The Tupelo Half Marathon + Seven

Tupelo Half Marathon Medal

Tupelo Half Marathon Medal

I just got back from the Tupelo Half Marathon in Tupelo, Mississippi.

I decided to use this race as a supported training run for my build up for the Berlin Marathon later this month.

Even without Berlin I would have found a reason to do this race. The t-shirt and medal are too good to pass up!

The race motto is “Trample the Weak Hurdle the Dead”.

What’s not to love about that?! Continue Reading →

I have never been so cold during a race!

Other than that, it was a great marathon. Here’s my recap . . . Continue Reading →

Play
The Jacksonville Bank Marathon was held for the 33rd time on January 3, 2016.

This race is billed as the “fastest marathon course in the south” and rated the Top 10 Fastest by Runner’s World. It has a 6 hour time limit for the full; 3 hour for the half and also featured a 5k.

I was able to travel to Jacksonville, FL to visit a friend for a few days during the holiday and by chance found this marathon to do while I was there (because doesn’t everyone search for races at their trip destinations). I registered for the race about one week out and it was still a reasonable $80. I love a good bargain! Continue Reading →
