Post-Half Thoughts

Have you entered our giveaway to win one of two small FuelBelts? Check Monday's post for all the details and to read my recap of my first half marathon. Giveaway ends on November 21, 2011. Good luck!

Thank you all so much for all your sweet words and encouraging thoughts over the past week! It means more than you know! I want to take the time and address some questions that have been asked in comments since posting my race recap. Although I respond to everyone that it allows me to reply to I still think it would be nice to address everything in one place that relates to the half and what's next.

Katy @ Fit in Heels wanted to know: "So.. have you signed up for another half yet???"

 I haven't signed up yet but I do have another half in January that I'm probably going to run as well as some others in 2012.

Jill @ Run for the Hills is going to "make my pitch for the Mercedes in Birmingham!"

This is a race that I will definitely run at some point. I may run the half in 2012 and shoot for running the full in 2013.

Christa @ Livin' A Little Life asked "Are you ready to do another??"


So, what did I do after my first half marathon? I scheduled a trip to the spa on Monday to redeem a neck and shoulder massage, moisturizing hand and foot treatment, and opal lip and eye treatment with golden tickets from Fleet Feet's Diva Night back in April. Monday night and Tuesday I scoured the internet looking for races and trying to decide which ones I would run and where. Then I decided to reward myself with an ActiveAdvantage Membership. If I'm going to keep racing (which of course I am) I might as well be able to save some money while doing it and discounted race entries and possible FREE race entries are icing on the cake!

Check back tomorrow to see which races have made their way to my 2012 Race Calendar and what's left in 2011 for my race calendar! If anyone has any suggestions of races that I should look into please let me know!


  1. I have a suggestion for a half...the Publix Georgia Half Marathon! I am trying to organize a little blogger meet up so of course I would love to meet you. PLUS - I'm giving away two entries to the race on my blog. It doesn't say on there, but the code is valid for the half marathon too. So it would even be a free race for you!
